The Department of Health in the Mekong delta City of Can Tho yesterday opened a pediatric hospital.
The VND861 billion (US$ 38,624,460) hospital, the most advanced of its kind in the region, has 500 beds. Director of Health Department Dr. Bui Thi Le Phi said that in past time, the number of kids in the Mekong delta rose drastically while facilities of the former pediatric hospital in Tran Hung Dao Street could not meet the increased demand.
Subsequently, the provincial People’s Committee has approved the construction of a new pediatric hospital in Nguyen Van Cu Street in Ninh Kieu District.
The 9 storey hospital has 7 specific rooms, 20 wards with modern medical equipment to serve treatment demand of residents in the region.
