Tenzing Pacific Medical Review: Van Hanh Hospital

Van Hanh General Hospital: A Patient’s Account

Tenzing Pacific Medical Review

Medical Review of the Month

This Month: Van Hanh Hospital

By: Matt E., American, 31 year old

I had my hernia repair done at Van Hanh Hospital in D10 (on Su Van Hanh); my mother-in-law had surgery there a couple of years ago and she vouched for it.

I found the place to be great. They have a “VIP” wing for foreigners to do health checks that only take about 60-90 minutes; and it’s much, much cheaper than the foreign hospitals.

The surgeon who did my hernia had been trained at Edinburgh and the University of California, so I didn’t feel any anxiety over his ability – he’s also done dozens of hernia surgeries. The room for my one-night stay cost 2M VND, and the procedure itself was 17M VND. Another hospital, VinMED, quoted 60M for the same procedure and the surgeon there had done fewer hernias.

Van Hanh also provided a nurse contact to come to my house and change all the bandage dressings for 300K VND per visit.

The only “negative” or “downside” is that it’s a Vietnamese hospital, meaning you have that usual level of disorganization (i.e. you don’t make appointments, you just show up and they take you in order, etc). You also have those enormous crowds of sick/injured people just sort of standing around everywhere, which can feel a bit like World War I or a disaster movie.
