Hanoi (VNA) - The Ministry of Health has given the green light to Hospital E in Hanoi to open four hi-tech centres to meet patient demand.

The four centres include a cardiology centre, a digestive centre, a bone-muscle centre, and a tumor centre. The cardiology centre is expected to be the leading one in performing complicated cases of congenital heart problems in the country.

The hospital on December 20 broke ground for building a treatment unit and a modern unit for outpatients as well as set up a children’s unit.

The treatment unit and the unit for outpatients are built on an area of 13,000 square metres at a total cost of 358 billion VND (15.7 million USD). It is expected to serve 2,000 patients a day.

The two units will be opened in 2018.-VNA
