This is also the leading hospital in Vietnam that has successfully implemented multi-organ transplant, liver transplant, heart transplant, kidney transplant, lung transplant, and others.
With nearly 2,500 employees, more than 1,500 beds and over 50 modern operating rooms, Vietnam-German Friendship Hospital is the country’s largest surgical center, performing about 70,000 surgeries each year.
Professor, Dr. Tran Binh Giang, director of Vietnam-German Friendship Hospital said that the RCS is an independent body, dealing with numerous fields including surgical assessment, ratings and issuance of global certifications under strict criteria.
Training facilities related to surgery not only in the UK but also in many other countries wish to be certified by the RCS to promote their ranking and prestige regarding the training and quality of their surgeons, the director added.
"With the RCS’s certificate, Vietnam-German Friendship Hospital will attract the cooperation of international hospitals and medical facilities as well as foreign experts," Giang said.
"The hospital’s doctors train thousands of students every year and cooperated with major hospitals in the world, including those in France, the US, Japan, the UK, South Korea, Australia, Taiwan (China), among others."
To help people in remote and mountainous areas access modern medical care, the hospital has officially launched the Telemedicine system, which is donated by the German government.
The RCS held an online assessment on December 11, 2020 which lauded the training at the hospital.
