The Prime Minister has given the green light to the project of the hospital.

 The hospital will be equipped with the state-of-the-art medical devices to meet the increased demand of treatment and to reduce the transferring of patients to bigger hospitals; subsequently, it can save time and cost for patients and reduce pressure on large infirmaries.

Additionally, the hospital will help prevent diseases, and provide training to clinics in the province.

Total cost of the hospital is VND1.725 billion ($ 74.7 million ), of which VND1,450 billion is from the government bond and the remaining is from local state budget and social contribution.

People’s Committee asked the local Department of Health in coordination with related agencies to finish paperwork for the hospital. It is scheduled to complete in 2019.
