The hospital deployed 300 doctors, nurses, and biomedical engineers to support medical teams of a field hospital and hospitals in Cu Chi, Can Gio, Binh Chanh districts, and Thu Duc city in treating COVID-19 patients.

The hospital's staff show their determination to fight COVID-19

Under high risks of being exposed to COVID-19, the reinforcements were equipped with protective clothing, medical supplies, and necessities to accomplish all assigned tasks.

Earlier, since the COVID-19 outbreak was reported in Bac Giang, the hospital has sent medical teams to reinforce anti-COVID-19 forces in the province.

On the occasion, the HCM City Medicine and Pharmacy University Hospital closely worked with other units to launch a contest entitled “I love white blouse soldiers”.

The contest consists of two contents, namely a painting competition for children aged 3 to 6, and a writing contest for 7 to 15-year-old children.

The contest aims to honor the medical staff members' great contributions and raise children’s awareness of the importance of the health sector in the COVID-19 fight.

Entries can be sent to the Communication Center of the HCM City Medicine and Pharmacy University Hospital via email, by July 30.
