Since its establishment in 2019, Nhi Dong 315 has grown into a leading pediatric clinic in Ho Chi Minh City. We currently operate 46 pediatric and obstetrics clinics in order to provide high-quality medical services to Vietnam’s rapidly growing middle class.
On the other hand, since its establishment in 2014, CUC has been committed to supporting the management of medical institutions in a wide range of fields with the mission of “creating hope through medical care”. In 2019, we started a business support business in Vietnam by utilizing the knowledge and experience accumulated in supporting Japanese medical institutions, and accumulated knowledge of the country’s medical market.
CUC has decided to make this investment to accelerate the development of Nhi Dong 315 through a business alliance. Nhi Dong 315 and CUC aim to provide better medical services to more people in Vietnam.
CUC provides management support to medical institutions operating pediatric clinics in Japan. Utilizing the experience accumulated in Japan, we will support the development of Nhi Dong 315 through business cooperation, personnel exchange, creation of educational opportunities, implementation of marketing activities, etc. between Japan and Vietnam. In order to realize the mission of “creating hope through medical care”, we will continue to actively develop business partners in Vietnam and further expand our business.

Vietnam’s healthcare market is expected to grow at an average annual rate of 11% from 2017 to 2027 (*1). The per capita medical expenditure in 2019 was US$181, a 10-fold increase from 2000 (*2). In the future, an environment needs to be created where more people can access better healthcare, especially in urban areas.
