Singapore-run medical centre slated to open in Phnom Penh

The $8 million Singapore Medical Center (Cambodia) Co Ltd (SGMC) is set open on September 23 to serve patients in the capital, it said on Thursday.

The medical centre occupies 1,400sqm on the third floor of The Bridge complex in Phnom Penh’s Tonle Bassac commune and will have state-of-the-art medical equipment in line with Singaporean standards, it said.

Anthony Jude Tan, the executive officer of DrMap (Cambodia), a Singapore-run medical wellness consulting and management solution provider, said the centre will provide full services to the public from November 18.

“SGMC is committed to building Cambodia’s first and finest medical wellness and lifestyle destination,” he said.

The medical centre will offer general practice, health screening and diagnostic imaging, women’s health, aesthetics, general surgery, laser treatments, and negative ion and far-infrared therapy, said Tan.

“We will provide leading medical services in Cambodia in line with Singapore’s ethical standards,” he said.

He said the centre will reduce the number of Cambodians seeking medical care in Singapore while attracting health tourists from other countries as well.

“Both Cambodians and expatriates living in Cambodia often travel to Singapore for health check-ups and treatment. But now, they can obtain such services in Phnom Penh,” he said.

The SGMC will employ 12 doctors from Singapore, the US and Cambodia.

Neurosurgeon Dr Roy Koh Kiok Miang, who is a member of the SGMC’s medical committee, said that it has a strict adherence to the highest safety and ethical standards.

“Not only is it a privilege to serve our clients and help them attain optimal wellness, we also see our services as responsibilities as well,” he said.

Tan said the SGMC also plans to expand to Sihanoukville and Siem Reap town in the future.

Ministry of health data shows that there are currently 1,703 hospitals, health centres and clinics – both public and private – across the Kingdom.
