Hospital Management Asia Conference this year had 500 nominees in 14 categories. One of these being The Most Progressive Hospital Award for Hospitals in Vietnam. Any hospital can send their performance improvement project or programme to raise the quality of care and safety for patients. The Council of Examiners then considers and selects some of them to go to the final round before voting to choose the best one to award. Surpassing a lot of medical organizations, FV Hospital, with their report on “Go for Gold for our Patients – Join hands for quality of care and safety for patients”, was voted by the examiners to be one of the most progressive hospitals in the area.
This award is a proud recognition for the efforts of FV Hospital in raising the quality of their medical services, and that their management is operated based on international standards. FV once again affirms that its position and prestige are built on the basis of a qualitative and efficient management system.
