Kume Design Asia Co. Ltd. has been chosen as the designer for the oncology and neurosurgery hospital in the hi-tech healthcare park HoaLam-Shangri La in HCMC.
The Japanese company on Wednesday signed a contract with Trieu An-Hoa Lam Hospital Co. Ltd., a joint venture between Hoa Lam Investment Consultancy Co. Ltd. and Trieu An Private General Hospital JSC.
The oncology and neurosurgery hospital with a total of 700 beds will cover more than 32,300 square meters. They will be located next to Thanh Do International Hospital in the hi-tech healthcare park at 532A Kinh Duong Vuong Street in HCMC’s Tan Binh District.
Trieu An-Hoa Lam Hospital Co. Ltd. decides to partner with Kume since this company has designed over 400 international hospitals around the world, said Nguyen Quang Duc, chairman of the board of members of Trieu An-Hoa Lam.
Kume Design Asia Co. Ltd., a unit of Kume Sekkei Group, will also give advice on designs of other hospitals in the healthcare park, including a 15-storey cardiovascular hospital with an estimated 350 beds and a 15-storey hospital for women and children with 380 beds.
The hi-tech healthcare park HoaLam-Shangri La with a total area of nearly 40 hectares is invested and developed by Hoa Lam-Shangri La Healthcare Co. Ltd., a joint venture between Vietnam’s Hoa Lam Company and Singapore’s Shangri-La Healthcare Investment Pte Ltd.
The project worth over US$1 billion is scheduled for completion after ten years of construction. It consists of four components: a healthcare zone with six hospitals offering 1,750 beds; an education and training zone; a support zone with commercial center and office building and a public zone with hotel, convention center and park.
Thanh Do International Hospital, the first hospital in the hi-tech healthcare park to get going, is set for opening next month. With 320 patient beds, Thanh Do is designed as a general hospital, with major wards like obstetrics and gynecology, pediatrics, cardiology, otolaryngology ophthalmology and neurology.
