The event saw the participation of Deputy Defense Minister Senior Lieutenant General Tran Don, Deputy Chief of the General Staff Lieutenant General Ngo Minh Tien, and Deputy Minister of Health Nguyen Truong Son.

Delegates cut the ribbon to inaugurate the building.

Built on an area of more than 122,000 square meters, the building has 1,040 hospital beds. Its modern technical, medical, and firefighting systems have been tested and operate stably according to the designer.

Addressing the ceremony, General Don congratulated military doctors of the Military Medical University and Military Hospital 103 on having a new and modern facility. He hoped they would take full advantage of the modern infrastructure to raise education and medical examination and treatment for both soldiers and people.

In the coming time, the university should direct its affiliated units to efficiently manage and operate the building while continuing to promote scientific research, and mastering technology to facilitate education and treatment. Furthermore, the Military Medical University was urged to build a contingent of skillful staff and expand cooperation with medical centers inside and outside the country.

In addition, the university needs to promptly apply achievements in the field of medicine to the military and the nation, and try its best to build itself into a leading medical center in the military and the country.
