Seoul National University Hospital Gangnam Center announced on the 19th that it will strengthen cooperation with Vinmec International Hospital of Vietnam in the field of medical examinations.
Previously, Seoul National University Hospital Gangnam Center signed an agreement with Vinmec International Hospital of Vietnam in May 2022 to cooperate in the field of medical examinations. Since the signing of that agreement, the Gangnam Center has dispatched personnel including family medicine and gastroenterology specialists to Vietnam to train local medical staff and provide advice on the operation of a health checkup center.
In June of last year, the Gangnam Center shared know-how on health checkups and improved the medical checkup process of Vinmec by introducing a consultation nurse system. Furthermore, the Gangnam Center provided health lectures to Koreans residing in Hanoi, Vietnam, thereby contributing to the promotion of the health of the Korean community in Vietnam.
A delegation from the Gangnam Center visited Hanoi, Vietnam, during the period of September 20–22 and met with the management of Vinmec International Hospital to inspect the current status of progress in the cooperation project and discuss means of improving it.
A lecture on lung cancer was given by Dr. Seung Ho Choi, the deputy director of the Gangnam Center and a specialist in respiratory medicine, for the local medical staff. The delegation also visited the Korean Embassy and KOCHAM (the Korean Chamber of Commerce and Industry) in Vietnam to discuss ways of making a contribution to enhance the healthcare service convenience of Koreans residing in Vietnam.
Dr. Jeong Yeon Cho, the director of Seoul National University Hospital's Gangnam Center, stated that, "We will continue to strive to improve the health of the Vietnamese people and local Koreans by helping the Health Checkup Center of Vinmec International Hospital become a world-class health checkup center on the foundation of the level of medical care and screening capabilities of the Seoul National University Hospital Gangnam Center in the future."
