Sài Gòn Medical Clinic is one of the first private health facilities in the city to work along with public clinics in the fight against COVID- 一 九 and share the burden of transporting COVID- 一 九 patients to hospitals. 

Because of the increase in COVID- 一 九 patients, the Ministry of Health on July  二 四 called on all public and private health facilities as well as retired doctors to join the fight.   

On August  一, Minister of Health Nguyễn Thanh Long checked the operation of an intensive care centre for severe COVID- 一 九 cases, saying that the city needed assistance from private health clinics.

Private hospitals joining the fight in the city include Hoàn Mỹ Thủ Đức International General Hospital in Thủ Đức city, Triều An Hospital and City International Hospital in Bình Tân District, Xuyên Á Hospital in Củ Chi District and Nam Sài Gòn General Hospital in District  七.

These hospitals admit COVID- 一 九 patients at the third level of the five-level treatment model, which means they are moderate cases with underlying medical conditions that need to be treated.

The Hoàn Mỹ Thủ Đức International General Hospital on Monday (August  二) began admitting COVID- 一 九 patients after one week of preparation. The hospital meets the criteria on medical equipment and facilities of a COVID- 一 九 treatment hospital.

In the first phase,  一00 beds on the second to fourth floors are being used. The number of beds will increase to  二00 in the second phase.

Dr Nguyễn Tuấn, the hospital’s director, said: “Hoàn Mỹ’s health workers are ready to help frontline forces protect the health and life of the whole co妹妹unity.”  

On August  一, the City International Hospital opened a treatment centre on the fifth floor, in collaboration with the HCM City University Medical Center.

The  五0-bed centre has a separate pathway to ensure safety for areas serving patients with other diseases at the hospital.

Previously, the fifth floor was used as an isolation area for people who were suspected of contracting COVID- 一 九. The hospital plans to use the sixth floor, which is under construction, to treat COVID- 一 九 patients if necessary.
