Building Cambodia’s Health Care System
1,000,000+ patients have received high-quality medical care in Cambodia.
The Khmer Rouge reign of terror and resulting political instability devastated Cambodia’s medical system. Hospitals were destroyed, the country was reduced to a handful of physicians and the healthcare infrastructure lacked the human resources to rebuild it.
The rapid development of The Sihanouk Hospital Center of Hope (SHCH) as a highly functioning training medical center provides Cambodia with not only a role model to emulate but also a means of increasing its supply of desperately-needed skilled medical professionals.
SHCH today is the most active adult hospital and the most sought after institution for medical education in Cambodia. Its alumni play a pivotal role in rebuilding the Cambodian medical system. SHCH also mentors key hospitals throughout the country.
