We’ve recently had the pleasure to begin working with a physician in Vietnam who operates several clinics throughout Vietnam. When he decided to provide a “western-style hospital” in Ho Chi Minh City, he already knew that he wanted to contact JJCA. He’d seen an article in Healthcare Design Magazine about our work with Bailey Medical Center and the rest, as they say, is history. We are now in the process of designing a nine-story, 27,500 square meter project including a full-service hospital and medical office space.
Though we’ve worked in many states around the country – including a current project in Alaska – this is our first international experience and it is really expanding our cultural horizons. In fact, we were there as Vietnam was celebrating their version of Independence Day with fireworks – much as we do. We’ve learned that motorbikes rule the roads there – and getting across the road is like playing human frogger. We did some site seeing and shopping in craftsman villages in Vietnam, the Cu Chi tunnels and the Mekong Delta.
Watch for more updates as we export western healthcare architecture to Vietnam!
