New Book Dedicated to CHI


A new book about the successful effort to improve patient care at Bach Mai Hospital, Hanoi, Vietnam, is dedicated to CHI and Diane Jones, vice president for healthy communities. "The Bach Mai Hospital Project" was written by Carl Bartecci, MD, the Colorado doctor who created the project to provide advanced training to physicians and nurses at the Hanoi hospital.

Between 2006 and 2010, CHI's Mission and Ministry Fund provided $650,000 in grants to the project, which also shipped $1 million of equipment from the former St. Anthony Central Hospital in Denver to Bach Mai. All royalties from the book will go to the Bach Mai Hospital Project.
