Military Hospital 175 to become healthcare complex
HCMC - Military Hospital 175 on Tuesday opened a new 600-bed hospital inside its campus on Nguyen Kiem Street in HCMC’s Go Vap District as part of a 1500-bed healthcare complex project costing VND2.5 trillion funded by the Ministry of Defense, said Major General Nguyen Hong Son, director of Military Hospital 175.
The new building consists of three wards, comprising an inpatient ward for cardiology, paediatrics, obstetrics, neurology, nephrology, gastroenterology, and urology; an operation and recovery ward for anesthesiology and epidemiology and infection control; and a sub-clinical ward for hematology, biochemistry, microbiology, anapathology, functional diagnostic and X-ray.
Temporarily, it will be also a healthcare and residential treatment center during the construction of a 500-bed Traumatology and Orthopaedics Hospital, said Son.
Military Hospital 175 is expected to become a 1,500-bed hospital complex in the next five years, using synchronous equipment in modern diagnosis and treatment to help ease overload at other major hospitals in HCMC.
