Indonesia’s Lippo eyes healthcare in HCMCWednesday, April 19,2017
AsemconnectVietnam - Indonesia’s Lippo Group has said it is interested in cooperating with HCMC to build hospitals and improve the treatment of cancer, heart and nerve diseases.
Riady said the healthcare sector of Vietnam would grow stronger in the next few years as its investment could increase to 8-10% of the country’s gross domestic product (GDP) from the current 2%.
Lippo Group has 28 hospitals and clinics in Myanmar, China, Singapore, Japan and Indonesia and plans to invest in an extra 15 in foreign countries this year, he said.
Vice chairwoman Thu said the city is building a number of specialized hospitals, especially an oncology hospital in District 9 which is scheduled to be operational in 2018. The city is completing procedures for an orthopedic hospital project.
The city is pushing for private sector investment in modern medical facilities, technology transfer and training of health workers. Family practice is also getting more attention of the city government.
Most big public hospitals in the city are overwhelmed with large numbers of patients.
