I made a short visit back to Cho Ray Hospital today. It was amazing how packed it was today. Very surprising. We had to find parking across the street.
We headed to the international health care section which was not crowded at all. Yeah, the fees are higher but when I looked at the prices I was surprised at how low the costs were. We then headed to the Vietnamese area which was overcrowded.
Though Cho Ray Hospital has a great reputation, I wonder how any of the medical staff and nurses can get their work done. This is still considered one of the best hospitals in Vietnam with world-renown surgeons.

Despite what many Expats and Tourists may say, keep Cho Ray Hospital’s telephone number and address handy. This is the first place you should go to for an emergency. Many tend to head to SOS Hospital, Columbia Hospital, Family Medical Practice or FV Hospital which are good hospitals but for accidents, surgury, or other complicated procedures not requiring medevacs, you will probably be sent to Cho Ray Hospital.
