Mekong Delta’s first obstetrics hospital opens its doors

Can Tho, September 9 (VNA) – A 250-bed hospital of obstetrics and gynaecology, the first of its kind in the Mekong Delta, was launched in Can Tho City on September 9.

The new hospital has 288 employees, 21 departments and a centre for prenatal and infant care to serve the needs of the area’s 12 provinces and cities.

Nguyen Huu Du, director of the hospital, said with its modern equipment and advanced technology, the hospital is a pioneer for in-vitro fertility treatment in the Mekong Delta.
In an effort to relieve the city’s overcrowded childcare facilities, the hospital will also provide medical check-ups and treatment for children.
