In order to attract patients and develop the Center, Vice Director of Hanoi Health Department Tran Thi Nhi Ha said: ”With the mechanism of technology and patient transfer, initial examination and diagnosis, we hope hospitals and health centers in Hanoi will cooperate and transfer patients to the Center, so that patients can receive the best services and treatment from leading Professors, which are fully covered by health insurance, instead of going abroad for the same treatment”. Recently, a patient aged 72 years old in Xuan La, Tay Ho had a tumor in stomach and was treated by Professor Leroy to remove the tumor safely. The patient’s family original intention was to bring him to France for surgery with the expense of 25,000 USD, however, at Vietnam, the expense for surgery and post treatment is only 100 million VND (equivalent to 4,500 USD).

The Center Director Nguyen Quynh Anh added, after 7 months of operation, the Center has received more than 6,000 patients for treatment, operating endoscopic diagnostic for 2,600 patients, performing CT scan of 384 slices for 486 patients, and operating surgery for above 300 patients. Among patients coming to the center, many are workers, highlanders, even from Mu Cang Chai and patients with health insurance.
