A new 50-bed hospital has been opened in the Laotian capital of Vientiane. The healthcare facility, called La Vie International Hospital, was inaugurated on 18 November, and is primarily intended to offer medical services to Vietnamese expatriates living, working, and studying in Laos.
The facility has a focus on cardiology and endocrinology, with a modern angiography system that supports in-depth diagnosis of diseases such as myocardial infarction and stroke.
Speaking at the inauguration ceremony, Deputy Governor of Vientiane Phukhong Bannavong said that the hospital’s operation is of great significance to the health sector of Laos in particular and its economic development in general.
The hospital has signed an agreement to cooperate with the Association for Liaison with Overseas Vietnamese (ALOV). It has also formed a partnership with the Hanoi Medical University Hospital to provide medical services to the Vietnamese community in Laos, as well as Laotian people in need of medical examination and treatment.
In Egypt, the Cairo-based Alameda Healthcare Group launched a new Neuroscience Center of Excellence in partnership with Medtronic last month.
