Investor Bitexco Group will build the BT (Build-Transfer) project at Nguyen Trai-Cong Quynh crossroads, District 1 from 2017-2020.
After being built, the hospital will have 300 sickbeds, modern material infrastructure and hi technologies on a level with hospitals in the Southeast Asia region.
Old Saigon General Hospital locates at 125 Le Loi, Ben Nghe ward, District 1, where the city People’s Committee permitted Bitexco to develop a complex of office buildings and five star hotels in 2007.
In return, Bitexco must set aside one hectare of land in Ma Lang area, Nguyen Cu Trinh Quadrangle, District 1 to build new Saigon General Hospital, more modern than the old one.
