Bach Mai Hospital was founded in 1911 and has become the largest, comprehensive general and teaching hospital in Vietnam.
Each year, the hospital receives hundreds of foreign delegations who go there for training, sharing medical knowledge, or to cooperate in development of research.
Bartecchi served in the US Army as a Flight Surgeon during the Vietnam War and in addition to caring for wounded troops, organized medical forays by helicopter to towns throughout the Mekong Delta.
During his tour in Vietnam he developed an admiration and respect for the resilient and proud Vietnamese people.
In the mid-1990s, he became involved with assisting the hospital improve their facility and providing training for doctors, nurses and staff there, including exchanges of medical personnel between Bach Mai and American hospitals, as assistance in the area of medical equipment and supplies, donated by organizations and corporations.
