South Korea to help build Vietnam's Quang Nam hospital in June

South Korea will start to build an US$35 million international standard hospital in Quang Nam Province in June, according to the Health Ministry’s website.

The project, which is the country’s largest non-refundable aid project from South Korea, was signed at the end of 2006 to respond to Vietnam’s hospital proposal at the 2004 Asia - Europe Summit in Hanoi.

Covering 35 ha in the Chu Lai open economic zone of Quang Nam Province, 100 km south of Da Nang, the 500-bed Quang Nam Central General Hospital will take four years to build.

South Korea will also provide equipment, technology and train specialists for the hospital.
