MALAYSIA-based international healthcare provider Columbia Asia has opened a new hospital in Binh Duong, Vietnam, which is the group's 22nd hospital in the region.

The services provider said Columbia Hospital in Binh Duong is its third facility in Vietnam after the one in Gia Dinh, Ho Chi Minh City.

The group also has an international clinic in District One, Ho Chi Minh City.

"Binh Duong has an increasing population and so we are here to meet the demand for quality healthcare now and in the future," Columbia Hospital-Binh Duong general director Dr Thai Tuong Tuong said in a statement.

The company, which is 30 per cent owned by the Employee Provident Fund and 70 per cent by a US-based International Columbia USA LLC, is developing two more hospitals, in Petaling Jaya and Klang.

Its operations in Vietnam are through 100 per cent foreign direct investment.

Columbia Asia Sdn Bhd (Southeast Asia) chief executive officer Kelvin Tan said Columbia Hospital-Binh Duong follows the Columbia Asia business model that focuses on medical excellence and caring patient services.

"This community hospital is built smaller than the standard private hospital, allowing it to provide private healthcare at affordable rates while helping to ease patient flow and operate more efficiently," he said.

The hospital has a capacity of 100 beds, with a total of 34 medical consultants. It is equipped with three operating rooms, a 10-cot nursery, four delivery suites and seven emergency bays. On top of that, it offers ambulatory, dialysis, endoscopy and physiotherapy services.
