What I could say is “Great!"

That greatness was shared by Mrs. Nguyen Thi Kieu Anh (Dong Ha City, Quang Tri Province). From Quang Tri, Mrs. Kieu Anh has been staying at the Hue Central Hospital for one month to take care of her husband, Mr. Nguyen Q. V., with esophageal tumor. After the surgery, Mr. V. continued to undergo treatment at the Pediatric and Acute Abdominal Surgery Department.

From May 2020, after visting a private clinic in Dong Ha city, Mr. V. was suspected to have a tumor in the esophagus. Mrs. Kieu Anh's family decided to go to Hue Central Hospital for medical examination, diagnosis and treatment. Since then, although she has not been continuously at the hospital and her husband has been referred to other departments, Ms. Kieu Anh still felt secure to stand by and encouraging her husband to be optimistic to receive treatment.

“Mr. V. was the first person in our family to come for treatment at Hue Central Hospital. It was strange but here we are; the whole family feel secure because it is not too far from home. There are good doctors and many modern equipment. Here, although being worried about my husband's health, thanks to the regular check from the doctors; and the nurses are all gentle and nice, so we feel very safe,” Mrs. Kieu Anh happily shared.

Lying on the hospital bed, Mr. V. could not speak but lovingly looked at his wife and nodded every time she smiled. Warmth spreads through the hospital room.

From Dong Hoi City (Quang Binh Province), Ms. Hoang Thi Hien also did not hesitate to bring her daughter Nguyen Hoang Ha T. (12 years old) to Hue Central Hospital after long episodes of headache.

At the time of admission, Ha T. had a severe headache. After doing the tests, the doctors determined that the baby had bacterial meningitis, a very dangerous condition. Over a month of following treatment at the Pediatric Center, Ha T. was getting better, coming to herself and being very happy.

Looking at her smiling in the hospital bed, Ms. Hien was optimistic: “I brought my child directly to Hue Central Hospital; it was not because I did not trust lower level hospitals. Seeing my child with a severe headache, I was scared. All that I could think was to go to Hue as soon as possible. Coming from another city, everything here is strange, but the doctors in the department cared for us regularly, so we feel very warm; there’s nothing to worry about.
