New 'state-of-the-art' Japanese hospital opens in Phnom Penh

First Japanese-Run Hospital Opens in Phnom Penh for $35 Million

by Michael Dickison and Kuch Naren | September 21, 2016 | អានជាភាសាខ្មែរ

“I think I want to be the first patient,” Prime Minister HE, who routinely leaves the country for medical care, said on Tuesday at an opening ceremony for Cambodia’s first Japanese hospital, a state-of-the-art, $35 million facility in Phnom Penh’s Chroy Changva district...

Neurosurgeon Yoshifumi Hayashi, the 50-bed hospital’s clinical director, said that although the hospital was a private enterprise, the goal was to build up Cambodia’s health services.

“The medical system isn’t enough. Many, many people are going out of the country” for treatment, Dr. Hayashi said.

“I’m a doctor—I’m a neurosurgeon—so I want to save many people,” he added. “Here, maybe without me, some cases can’t be solved. That’s the motivation for me.”
Sounds good - especially the staff training part:
The hospital will handle most types of care, including emergency services—apart from delivering babies, Dr. Hayashi said. The Japan-funded National Maternal and Child Health Center—commonly called the Japanese hospital—has long been Phnom Penh’s most popular destination for delivering babies.

A specialist wing at Sunrise Japan is planned for adjacent land, though specifics haven’t been decided, Dr. Hayashi said. All of the hospital’s non-Japanese staff—currently 80 out of 104—were sent to Japan for training for six months to a year, a perk that would continue for new staff, he said...

I do hope standards are higher than the current morgue services. But it does seem like they've made some pretty good first steps.

Web site very promising. http://www.sunrise-hs.com/ They do CT scans and MRI.

I on their web site it looks pretty small. Maybe good if you can't make it over to Thailand. Last year I had shoulder surgery at the Bangkok Hospital-Pattaya and was treated like a king. The surgical suite looked like the bridge of the starship Enterprise. I was on the 12th floor and when they brought a food menu around the first day I asked them if this was harassment? Cute girl said why? I went to the window and pointed to the McDonalds on the street below. The cute girl said that they would go get anything I wanted including Pizza. Great service, and the cute young nurses repeatedly asking me, "You have no one, no girlfriend/wife, to take care of you?" All said with a sly smile. I also had a room better than a lot of high end hotels.

I don't believe that 6 months or one years training in Japan is enough for Cambodian surgeons, doctors or nurses. I compare it to training a tuk-tuk driver to operate a crane on a hi-rise building.
Some people [ in Cambodia ] , no mater how much training they get will never reach the standed that is needed to be comparable to those in other countries. It all starts with how they are raised as kids and the conditions they are raised in, to the education , and if they want to be the best that they can be, in everything that they do.
Cambodia,,,, Don't fall in love with her.
Like the spoilt child she is, she will not be happy till she destroys herself from within and breaks your heart.

I tend to agree Duncan. I think they're basically working on slowly giving local doctors the basic knowledge that your average Japanese doctor would have. Local doctors (and other professionals) start off with much lower knowledge base than their foreign counterparts, so simply bringing them up to "close enough" to a GP level is likely thr aim. Improving medical care is a great though, even though the best of hospitals is only as good as its doctors.

Is it just me or is 35 million very little for a hospital? They cost around a billion back where I'm from, but those are probably overinflated government contracts... Still, some equipment costs millions so I'm surprised at the low price tag.

It's a nice looking place. Missus sent back pictures.

The Khmers that return from training in Japan generally see themselves as better than other Khmers. As for real skill set, I don't know. The hospital has pulled all of their foreign staff from all the other places around town to concentrate at this place.

Foreign doctors do practice in other places around town. They often wonder why stuff like antibiotics don't work in Cambodia. What's usually lacking is good support personnel (nurses, techs, cleaners, etc.)

All the Japanese nurses have concentrated at this hospital and a Japanese system of care is followed. Should be a excellent facility, possibly an alternative to Thailand (in the future).
