Belgium-based VK Architects & Engineers has recently partnered with Rang Dong Medical Joint Stock Company (Rang Dong JSC) to develop new VietSing International Hospital, one of the first private medical hospitals in Hanoi.
The 350-bed international hospital would be located at Minh Khai commune, Tu Liem district, Hanoi. The new hospital is the second medical project of Rang Dong JSC apart from its first VietSing International Clinic established in 2007.
As a strategic partner of Rang Dong JSC, VK Architects & Engineers, a recognised leader in the healthcare industry with 60 years of experiences is the designer of the new hospital. Unlike other architectural firms, VK Architects & Engineers is a fully integrated healthcare design firm that provides a complete architectural and engineering solution for its healthcare clients.
From the beginning of each hospital design, VK Architects & Engineers takes all disciplines into account. This integrated design process enhances functionality and operational efficiency, reduces the life cycle cost and maximises flexibility and extendibility.
Medical equipment and future medical technology are of course also taken into consideration.
“The clinic was built and operated according to international standards in the late twentieth century. We want to ensure that it incorporates all of the latest green technology,” said Kenneth Groosman, Business Director Healthcare of VK Architects & Engineers.
Grossman added that Rang Dong JSC and VK Architects & Engineers committed to build Vietsing International Hospital as a “flagship” hospital model and a symbol of friendship between Belgium and Vietnam.
According to Rang Dong JSC’s CEO Nguyen Minh Son, the company recognised that a patient friendly atmosphere and pleasant working conditions created a high-quality healing environment.
With partnership with foreign partner VK Architects & Engineers, it hoped the new hospital would meet the high-quality healing environment.
“This new hospital is a response to the official request from the Ministry of Health to achieve five private hospitals over 10,000 people by 2015,” stated a press release.
