Ho Chi Minh City’s FV Hospital celebrated the 20th anniversary of its opening on 9 April. Since opening, the hospital has treated almost five million patients – approximately a quarter of which were foreigners.
The multi-specialised healthcare facility was the first international hospital of its kind to be established in Vietnam when it opened. It currently boasts 230 beds, with the capacity to receive 1,500 patients per day across 36 specialties.
The hospital has been accredited by the Joint Commission International (JCI) three times since its opening. It also established a charity fund in 2006, and has invited leading surgeons to Vietnam to treat over 600 disadvantaged children with birth defects.
The First Affiliated Hospital of Sun Yat-sen University in Guangzhou, China, recently opened a new ‘division hospital’ in the city’s Nansha district.
