Dong Nai General Hospital, the country’s first public private partnership (PPP) model, was inaugurated on April 25 in the southern province of Dong Nai.

Covering an area of 70,000 square metres, the hospital has a total investment capital of 3.37 trillion VND (156 million USD), 60 percent of which came from the private sector.

It comprises two treatment buildings, a 4-5 star service facility, and a helicopter park.

At the inauguration ceremony, Deputy Health Minister Pham Le Tuan lauded the efforts the provincial health sector has undertaken to ensure health care services for people.

He also highlighted the significance of the PPP model applied in the hospital in raising healthcare quality and easing overload at public hospitals.-VNA
