HCM City (VNA) – A 178-bed hospital equipped with state-of-the-art technologies was inaugurated in Ho Chi Minh City on December 26.

The Vinmec Central Park General Hospital, worth 1.2 trillion VND (53.81 million USD) invested by Vingroup, aims to provide high quality health care service for residents in southern provinces.

Director of the hospital Hoang Quoc Hoa said the hospital targets to be the second health care facility of Vingroup that meets the JCI Accreditation standards for hospitals in 2017.
