The Vietnam-Cuba friendship hospitals in Hanoi and the central province of Quang Binh are a symbol of the close friendship and cooperation in healthcare between Vietnam and Cuba.

In September 1973, during a visit to Quang Tri and Quang Binh provinces, President Fidel Castro decided to give Quang Binh a spacious and modern hospital to serve local people and injured soldiers.

The construction of the hospital began on May 19, 1974 and it was put into operation on September 9, 1981 with nearly 500 beds.

Doctor Duong Thanh Binh, Director of the Vietnam-Cuba Friendship Hospital in Dong Hoi, Quang Binh, recalled late President Fidel Castro was among the first foreign leaders to visit the liberated zone in South Vietnam.

”The hospital is a valuable gift, a symbol of friendship and solidarity between Vietnam and Cuba,” he said.

The Cuban Health Ministry has sent three experienced doctors who have expertise in tumour surgery, traumatology and cardiovascular intervention to help doctors in the Vietnam-Cuba Friendship Hospital in Dong Hoi in technological transfer and treatment.

Doctor Piter Marti’nez Beni’tez, in the Vietnam-Cuba Friendship Hospital in Dong Hoi, expressed his hope that in the future, there will be more Cuban experts in other fields to come to Vietnam while Vietnamese doctors will visit Cuba for experience sharing.

The Vietnam-Cuba Friendship Hospital in Hanoi was put into operation in June 1969, specialized in otorhinolaryngology and odonto-stomatology.

The hospital is equipped with modern facilities and has conducted tooth implants and treatment of malignant facial tumors.
