The project is operated by Nova Healthcare in collaboration with leading German doctors. When officially put into operation in the second quarter of 2023, the project will serve tourists at NovaWorld Phan Thiet resort and help the community directly access the most advanced medical services from Europe.
The event was held to realise the cooperation after an MoU between NovaGroup and MediVerbund AG was signed in October 2020 to establish a chain of specialised clinics, polyclinics, and emergency centres.
Under the MoU, MediVerbund will be responsible for facilitating access to relevant equipment, techniques, know-how, and finance to develop and operate the clinic system.
MediVerbund will also train doctors, nurses, technicians, and other staff to ensure the team is equipped with professional knowledge and skills following German standards.
A representative of NovaGroup said that the establishment of Nova Medi at NovaWorld Phan Thiet is an opening chapter for the Nova Healthcare City project, which includes a medical and healthcare complex with the most advanced specialities.
To do this, NovaGroup and its member companies have been cooperating with many reputable domestic and foreign partners, building a system of international standards hospitals, beauty salons, clinics, and community healthcare systems.

Binh Thuan province lacks highly qualified personnel in the health sector. The presence of the Nova Healthcare project is expected to improve the quality of personnel with training programmes, comprehensively develop the local healthcare system, and step-by-step improve the quality of people's healthcare.
At the same time, when officially put into operation, the project will make NovaWorld Phan Thiet a model and attractive destination for the world's healthcare tourism.
Speaking at the event, Werner Baumgartner, chairman of MediVerbund AG shared, “Our aim for this project is to not only be economically successful but also to bring people in Vietnam good medical treatment, regardless of age, sexuality, and social status. Germany and Vietnam are geographically far apart, but we will together bring both countries closer and do whatever we can to provide good medical care."

Following the groundbreaking event, on February 28, NovaGroup and its partner MediVerbund held the inauguration ceremony of the Nova Medic Saigon Clinic located at 187 Nguyen Van Troi in Ho Chi Minh City.
The establishment of these two modern clinics branded Nova Medi and Nova Medic is the beginning of the regional connection strategy for tourism complexes in Ho Chi Minh City, Ba Ria-Vung Tau, Phan Thiet, Dalat, and Nha Trang.
A project to connect these five provinces and cities will create conveniences for tourists. Combined with advanced IT, Novaland's projects will bring essential benefits to residents and tourists, creating a fresh and attractive destination and improving the competitiveness of the nation's tourism.
