The boutique hospital, which is owned by the Congregation, will open to the public in May 2020. It will be named LAU St. John Medical Center.

The total built-up area of the hospital is 7,000 square meters. It consists of three floors and a basement with 40 beds in total, for general medical services and surgical operations.
