Da Nang (VNS/VNA) - The central city of Da Nang has proposed a plan of developing seven high-quality health care service projects with an estimated fund of 13.6 trillion VND (591 million USD) from the state budget, the city’s planning and investment department said.

The department said seven projects will include an island and sea health care centre in Lien Chieu district, a general hospital in the suburban Hoa Vang district, and a health care service centre for the elderly in Cam Le district.

An international general diagnostic and treatment centre and upgrading the current Paediatrics and Obstetrics Hospital project have been planned in Son Tra district.

The city's authorities said the 600-bed Paediatrics and Obstetrics Hospital, which was built in 2012 and is currently overloaded, would be upgraded to 1,000 beds with an investment of 1 trillion VND (43.5 million USD).

Da Nang also proposed two Public-Private-Partnership (PPP) projects of developing an international cancer treatment centre in Lien Chieu district and a high-quality general hospital for international visitors in the near future.

Last year, the first centre of neurosurgery and burns commenced construction in the city’s downtown area with total funds of 20.5 million USD.

The first 200-bed cardiovascular centre – the second premium cardiology centre in central Vietnam – for treatment or surgeries – and the first vaccination centre for 4,000 arrivals each day – officially opened last year.

The city has been calling for partners from Japan and Europe to build more high-quality medical service centres for local and foreign residents.

Da Nang has four international standard hospitals including the Da Nang General Hospital, Family Hospital, Hoan My-Da Nang and VinMec Da Nang.

Da Nang currently has 12 hospitals with 1,000 doctors and more than 620 consulting rooms and medical care centres./.
