While other hospitals in Hanoi are pushed well beyond their limits during the COVID-19 epidemic, Hanoi American International Hospital in Cau Giay district, which was expected to be a 5-star hospital, has been abandoned for 23 years.

Hanoi American International Hospital towers on 2.7 hectares in Cau Giay district, next to Nghia Tan lake. The project was planned with having 300 international quality beds and a modern helicopter landing pad to diagnose and treat serious diseases such as blood cancer, brain, and heart disease

The project certificate was granted in 1997 with the total investment $50 million poured by US-based Keystone Global Group. This was expected to be a 5-star hospital, equipped with modern facilities. However, more than 20 years after stopping construction, it remains a deserted and sprawling construction site, the area is now a playground for wild grass and weeds

While the government is mobilising resources to build isolation areas for the epidemic, Hanoi American International Hospital is still abandoned, as a towering symbol of wasted national resources and a poor-performing investor
