After 4 years, HMA decides to head back to Vietnam. This time to another charming city – Ho Chi Minh, Vietnam: over 80 speakers and 1000 delegates from 30 countries are expected to attend this year’s event.

Santa Fe, NM, March 09, 2016 --( Hospital Management Asia (HMA) is the premier learning conference for regional hospital managers. The event is officially announced to take place at the Sheraton Saigon Hotel & Towers in Ho Chi Minh City (formerly known as Saigon).

Over the past years, Vietnam has gradually transformed itself to a more open and market oriented economy and they are beginning to enjoy the benefits of its steady but slow integration into the global commercial system.

By bringing the conference to a developing country such as Vietnam, a two-way avenue for improvement can be achieved. Delegates will be able to learn from the value-packed how-to sessions.

Hospital Management Asia keeps delegates up to date on the best hospital management systems and practices in today’s industry. It is an exchanging, learning and networking convention.

Some of the early confirmed speakers include:

· Dr. Dilshaad Ali Bin Abas, Project Development Executive, FV Hospital (Vietnam) & Managing Director, Far East Medical Clinics (Hong Kong)
