Saving time – Saving lives

Vinmec Healthcare System is committed to providing value-based care, placing patients at the center of attention, and adopting a team-based care model. Within Vinmec’s healthcare system, the emergency and critical care department is meticulously constructed and developed to deliver the highest quality medical services while maintaining the most appropriate and satisfactory healthcare costs.


24/7 Operation

Every day of the year, including weekends and holidays

Rapid & Reliable Response

  • Our team of doctors and medical staff are well-trained and specialized in many areas of emergency treatment, including emergency resuscitation – with ACLS (Advanced Cardiovascular Life Support), PALS (Pediatric Advanced Life Support), and FCCS certification. We keep update with the latest emergency protocols and techniques (such as E-PCR, etc.) to respond as effectively and swiftly as possible in all situations.
  • A team of professional medical receptionists and multilingual interpreters (fluent in English, French, Korean, Japanese, Russian, Chinese ….) effectively support the ER/Emergency Department.
  • All ambulances are ready to act immediately upon request and contain all vital equipment, such as professional ventilator systems, vital signs monitoring equipment, AEDs (defibrillators), portable hospital beds for standard and multiple trauma needs, and so forth.

Highest accuracy and safety

  • Patients are accurately assessed and classified according to the Australasian Triage Scale (ATS) at the ER – Poison Control Department, where appropriate emergency measures are applied.
  • Patients requiring intensive care/in critical condition are delivered to ICU (Intensive Care Unit) with the coordination of many specialists (Team-Based Care) at the immediate time of admission, ensuring the optimal pathway to stable status.
  • The department has full emergency functionality and treatment capabilities for areas of medical specialization, such as Internal medicine, General Surgery, Obstetrics, and Pediatrics.
  • Vinmec Emergency Resuscitation Department is also in charge of intensive resuscitation for multi-organ failure such as: respiratory failure, circulatory failure, acute liver failure, acute kidney failure, neurological resuscitation and brain protection, etc., as well as post-surgery resuscitation and severe cases requiring specialized treatment such as: post-stroke, severe trauma, elderly people with severe illness, and so forth.

International standards

  • These specialized services are carried out according to international standards, particularly the US standards, with a core practice model derived from the Mayo Clinic (US) CERTAIN model, Multidisciplinary Round model, and supported by programs ensuring professional competency, such as FCCS, BLS, ACLS, PALS, CATC, among others. Annual capacity audits are conducted to continually enhance the quality of intensive care operations.

Advanced emergency and ICU models


1. Rapid Response Team (RRT)

Early detection of signs of acute changes at im-patients, and remote prevention of unwanted circulatory arrest (code blue triggers), departments may require RRT support to access and offer early intervention if the patient is indicated as needing intervention.


2. Multidisciplinary ICU rounds

The Core team (including doctors & nurses in emergency resuscitation - rehabilitation - nutrition - clinical pharmacy) examines ICU patients daily. Therefore, a daily comprehensive care treatment plan is discussed and agreed upon to achieve highly effective and safe treatment for the patient.


3. Early detection and management of sepsis in hospitals and emergency rooms (Sepsis bundle)

Early recognition of warning signs that can be ambiguous when a patient has sepsis/undergoes septic shock and requires timely treatment, helping to circumvent severe septic shock developments, multi-organ failure, etc.


4. Telemedicine in Emergency Resuscitation (eICU or teleICU)

Telemedicine allows us to synchronize the quality of treatment across hospitals among Vinmec Healthcare System in the field of emergency resuscitation.
