HCMC – Over 1,500 residents of Binh Son and Tra Bong districts in Quang Ngai Province are receiving essential healthcare services, including medical examinations, consultations and treatments, through a medical program launched by Doosan Vina in collaboration with Chung Ang University Hospital (CAU).

This marks the 13th charitable medical program conducted in the province. Running for five days, from January 15 to 19, this year’s initiative also includes a generous donation of medical equipment to the Binh Son Medical Center.

A dedicated team of 18 doctors and nurses from CAU, supported by interpreters from Danang University of Foreign Languages and aided by Doosan Vina personnel, is focusing on various medical specialties, including pediatrics, internal medicine, orthopedic trauma, and family medicine.

The initiative started on January 15 with the presentation of an X-ray digital radiography system worth nearly VND526 million, enhancing diagnostic capabilities at Binh Son Medical Center.

Between January 15 and 17, doctors are examining 900 patients, including 630 adults and 270 children from Chau O town, Binh Nguyen, and Binh Long Communes at Binh Son Medical Center.

On January 18 and 19, the medical team will extend its services to another 600 people, comprising 420 adults and 180 children, in Tra Bong District at Tra Xuan Medical Center.

To ensure the safety and convenience of the participants, Doosan Vina has provided shuttle buses from designated pick-up points to the medical examination locations.

Over the span of 13 years, the collaborative effort between Doosan Vina and CAU has provided free examinations to 28,000 individuals in Quang Ngai Province and Nui Thanh District of Quang Nam Province. This included 22 children who received surgery in Korea for congenital heart defects and cleft lip and palate, along with 85 elderly individuals who underwent cataract surgery at local hospitals.

Since 2018, the program has made significant contributions through medical equipment donations valued at nearly VND6.5 billion to various hospitals in Quang Ngai Province, particularly the Quang Ngai Provincial General Hospital and Provincial Hospital for Women and Children.

Both organizations have also facilitated the training of Vietnamese doctors and nurses at CAU’s headquarters in South Korea, enhancing their professional expertise.
