The US’s Sanford Health is expanding its presence in international healthcare by extending services to seven countries, including Vietnam.

Its international healthcare arm, Sanford World Clinic (SWC), is cooperating with Victoria Healthcare (VHC) in Vietnam to support enhanced clinical and healthcare management education programs for Victoria’s physicians, nurses, and administrative staff.

This is the first agreement in Southeast Asia for SWC and represents the beginning of cooperation and professional support to VHC from one of the leading healthcare systems in the US.

“We believe in the quality of services, procedures, systems, and business strategies of VHC in Vietnam,” said Dr. Daniel Blue, Executive Vice President of SWC. “This partnership will bring more value to Vietnamese people through our combined efforts in the healthcare industry.” 

After more than 12 years of operations, VHC has opened four branches in Ho Chi Minh City serving more than 1.5 million patients under international quality standards and become a trusted healthcare brand in Vietnam.

It signing a comprehensive strategic cooperation agreement with SWC is a new step forward for Vietnam’s healthcare sector and represents a hands-on approach to healthcare with American input.

Sanford Healthcare is a leading healthcare organization in the US, with 45 hospitals and 300 clinics in nine states. Its international branch, SWC, has branches in Ghana, Germany, and China, and it has more than 1,500 doctors and 29,000 employees in total.

Sanford Health will also enter New Zealand, Ireland, Costa Rica, and South Africa this year and increase its presence in China and Ghana. The expansion follows last year’s acquisition of a minority stake in ISAR Klinikum, a hospital leader in stem cell therapies in Munich, Germany.

“With these partnerships, we are creating unique opportunities for shared learning,” said Mr. Kelby Krabbenhoft, President and CEO of Sanford Health. “This is not something we are pursuing for financial gain, as we believe this type of collaboration will help further our mission of health and healing.”
