Hanoi (VNA) – The first phase of a hi-tech healthcare complex, expected to cost more than 1 billion USD, kicked off in Hanoi’s outskirt Dong Anh district on October 14.

The 40ha complex, invested by TH Group, is divided into two stages with the first slated for completion in the second quarter of 2022, providing 300 beds.

The second stage is expected to be finished in 2025, raising the number of beds to 1,000.

The TH Medical complex will include five main areas that are an e-prevention centre, an international hospital, a wellness and rehabilitation centre, an international R&D centre and a geriatric centre and nursing home.

Addressing the groundbreaking ceremony, Chairman of the Hanoi People’s Committee Nguyen Duc Chung highlighted the significance of the project in improving healthcare services for local residents, pledging that the city will support the implementation of the project.

During the ceremony, the TH Group and TH Medical signed a cooperation agreement with Keio University and Keio Hospital of Japan on collaboration in the project’s management, operation and personnel exchange.

Statistics from the Ministry of Health revealed that healthcare spending accounts for approximately 7 percent of the country’s annual GDP.  People’s spending on overseas medical treatment reached nearly 2 billion USD./.
