The project covers 20 hectares with three main components, including an electronic hospital and centre applying electronic medical records to allow doctors to review a patient’s medical history online. 

A five-star general hospital will be built, using the latest technology and modern equipment. In the first phase, the hospital is expected to have 300 beds. 

At the same time, a nursing and rehabilitation centre will also be constructed, providing a friendly and natural environment for the recovery of patients.
