The project cost about $80 million and is funded by Chinese aid. The hospital had its name changed to Cambodia-China Friendship Preah Kossamak hospital following an approval by Prime Minister Hun Sen in 2017.
The 11-storey building will have 400 beds, 132 rooms and 219 restrooms.
Health Minister Mam Bunheng said that the hospital will be equipped with modern technology.
Deputy Prime Minister Yim Chhayly said that China’s aid will help improve Cambodia’s health service.
“This aid will help improve health service for Cambodian people,” he said.
