In 1972, the National Hospital of Pediatrics was heavily damaged by bombing raids. With aid from Swedish citizens and the Vietnamese government, the NHP was able to begin rebuilding in 1975 and was active again by 1981. Currently, the NHP employs 1023 staff members.

The National Hospital of Pediatrics was established to follow the model of the pediatric department in the Bach Mai General Hospital of Hanoi.  The Ministry of Health designated the NHP as the leading pediatric department in all of Vietnam.  The NHP is the coordinator and the top center for pediatric care in the country.

Each of these departments receives patients from all provinces of Northern Vietnam, as well as some patients from Central and Southern Vietnam.
