The People’s Committee of Ho Chi Minh City has just approved a project to build a 1,000-bed paediatric hospital in the city.

The Ho Chi Minh City Nhi Dong Hospital project that costs nearly 4.5 trillion VND (214.2 million USD) will be built on a 125,000 sq.m land plot in the city’s Binh Chanh district.

When completed in 2016, the new facility is expected to ease the workload for the two existing Nhi Dong 1 and Nhi Dong 2 Hospitals, which are seriously overloaded at present.-VNA
