The Government has given the go-ahead for the Hanoi-based Bach Mai hospital to build a second unit in Hoa Lac Hi-tech Park located in Hanoi’s outlying Thach That district to ease serious overcrowding.

The 1,000-bed unit covering an area of 14ha will be located 40 kilometers from the main hospital on Giai Phong Street.

The Government will fund the construction using the State budge, according to the hospital director.-VNA
