The American International Hospital in Vietnam is the second medical unit in Southeast Asia that Johns Hopkins Medicine International collaborates with and supports.

The hospital (AIH) has solidified a collaboration with Johns Hopkins Medicine International (JHI), the U.S.’s leading medical system, towards improving healthcare service standards in Vietnam.

The partnership will help AIH to continue making advances in its medical services. It will help improve the effectiveness of treatment and medical services, as well as attract patients to use domestic healthcare services, not to mention reducing costs in cases of patient referral. AIH will receive consultancy and knowledge sharing from the renowned medical institution for clinical training and operations.

John Hopkins will support and advise AIH on patient safety, clinical care, clinical operation, infection control and international patient referrals.

With consultancy from JHI, AIH's centers of excellence will improve its ability to provide comprehensive support in diagnosis and treatment.

The Hernia Center, the first one in Viet Nam built in collaboration with JHI, is expected to be opened in August, setting the path for similar centers of excellence in obstetrics, pediatrics and other areas. The center will help patients with pain control and faster recovery after surgery via a team of caregivers from general surgery, anesthesiology, rehabilitation and nutrition.
