Siemens Healthcare Ltd. and the Vietnam Japan Medical High-Tech Development JSC (VijaMetech JSC) have officially signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) on promoting mutual cooperation. 

The two have agreed to consider feasible business models for cooperation in order to develop oncology screening and early detection and treatment networks in Vietnam.

Siemens Healthcare will provide a spectrum of solutions for Vietnam – Japan International K Hospital projects, ranging from medical imaging and laboratory diagnostics and CT simulation in radiation therapy to value added management services such as consulting and healthcare IT services, as well as state-of-the-art technologies for therapeutic and molecular diagnostics.

Siemens Healthcare is committed to supporting VijaMetech in technology transfer, strategic advisory, clinical and workflow advisory, education and training, clinical studies, marketing, and the development of an oncology center network.

The cooperation with Siemens Healthcare will enable Vietnam – Japan International K Hospital to be one of the leading centers in the screening and early detection and treatment of oncology in Vietnam and help make VijaMetech’s plans become a reality.

According to the World Health Organization, cancer is the second leading cause of death globally and was responsible for 8.8 million fatalities in 2015. Worldwide, nearly one in six deaths is due to cancer, with more than 10 million new cases each year. In Vietnam, it is estimated that there are around 100,000 to 150,000 new cancer cases and roughly 75,000 cancer deaths each year.

The Vietnam – Japan International K Hospital is a 100 per cent locally-owned oncology hospital that operates in close cooperation with the oncology hospital network in Vietnam as well as worldwide. The hospital is financed by the VijaMetech JSC and forms part of its ambitious plans to develop a network of oncology screening, diagnostics, and treatment centers around Vietnam under international standards. 

The hospital is invested to meet internationally quality requirements and is equipped with a range of the most advanced equipment in order to support diagnostic, treatment and care for cancer patients as well as to support highly efficient research and training in oncology.
