Doosan Vina, in partnership with the Chung Ang University Hospital in Seoul, South Korea, carried out their annual corporate social responsibility (CSR) program in central Quang Ngai province from September 18 to September 22.

This ninth edition of the annual CSR medical program included examinations by South Korean doctors of 2,500 people in the five communes of Binh Son district and gynecological surgery for seven women at the Obstetrics and Gynecology Hospital of Quang Ngai Province. As part of their examination, the 2,500 patients also received medicine to treat their illness and gifts to lift their spirits.

“Healthcare is one of our three CSR focuses that fall under our broader CSR umbrella of ‘Building Healthy Communities’,” said Mr. Yeon In Jung, CEO of Doosan Vina. “We invest in healthcare, education, and housing because we firmly believe these three things are foundational in helping build sustainable and thriving communities.”

“I have been suffering for many years from a medical condition but my funds are limited so I haven’t been able to seek the treatment I need, but because of this service from the South Korean doctors I can get some medical attention and medicine,” said Ms. Nguyen Thi Huong from Tuyet Diem 1 village in Binh Thuan commune.

The South Korean doctors and their Vietnamese colleagues at the Obstetrics and Gynecology Hospital of Quang Ngai Province will perform seven obstetric gynecological surgeries. Professor of Surgery Lee EunJu, Dr. Yang Ang Shin Ho, and Nurse JiMi Kyung will perform the surgeries. Professor Lee EunJu also led an internship for Quang Ngai obstetricians at Chung Ang University Hospital in 2017.

Ms. Nguyen Thi Lien of Nghia Hiep commune is one of the patients who will have the surgery. Commenting on her upcoming operation she said, “I have had problems for several years and treatment has not been successful, so this surgery is a wonderful thing and I am so grateful to Doosan Vina, Chung Ang, and the South Korean specialists for making it possible.”

The medical program was first held by Doosan Vina and Chung Ang University Hospital in 2008 and this is the ninth cycle. The program is a joint effort between Doosan Vina, Doosan Korea, and Chung Ang University and has provided free medical examinations and medicine for 21,500 people in Quang Ngai at a cost of VND2.2 billion this year and more than $600,000 since 2008.

Doosan Vina is a high-tech industrial complex at the Dung Quat Economic Zone in Quang Ngai and employs 2,000 Vietnamese workers. The company supplies the mega infrastructure products that make modern life a reality. Doosan Vina’s products include boilers for thermal power plants, desalination plants the size of a football pitch that turn sea water into fresh water, material handling systems like the cranes that are the heart of logistics at ports around the world, and structural steel for buildings and infrastructure developments. To date the company has exported products valued at $2.4 billion.
