Sunrise Japan Hospital Phnom Penh will launch a paediatric care service early in 2018 after an increase in interest from Cambodian clients.
“Given that 90 percent of our patients are Khmer, the hospital decided to add a paediatric service, which will be launched early in 2018,” said Toshiaki Fukuda, CEO of Sunrise Japan Hospital Phnom Penh.
Speaking at an event to mark the hospital’s first anniversary, Mr Fukuda said that in the past year the hospital’s patient load had increased from 30 to 130 a day. Mr Fukuda said the hospital’s staff included physicians and other health care providers contracted from Japan.
The hospital provides Japanese-standard medical care, with services including emergency care, complete medical checkups, gastrointestinal disorders, and neurosurgery.
He said the hospital was helping to fill gaps in Cambodia’s medical infrastructure, adding that it worked in conjunction with four partners: JGC Corp; Innovation Network Corp of Japan; Kitahara Medical Strategies International Co, Ltd; and the Japan International Cooperation Agency.
