Hospitals

Whether you go to a hospital in Cambodia or in a nearby country, we’ve got suggestions.

In Phnom Penh, Thai-owned Royal Rattanak Hospital is the best international hospital in town, but it’s not cheap! You can see Khmer doctors there for less than the foreign doctors charge, but it’s still fairly pricey. A less expensive option that expats still trust is Sen Sok University Hospital.

In Siem Reap the options are even more limited. Royal Angkor International Hospital is, like Royal Rattanak, affiliated with Bangkok Hospital in Thailand. Royal Angkor International is the best available, but that isn’t saying much. Prices are sky-high and the services they offer are limited; be prepared to be sent to Phnom Penh or Bangkok if it’s something serious. If you are traveling with children, you can see someone at the Angkor Hospital for Children in Siem Reap, but expect a long wait.

In Kampot a new hospital, Sonja Kill Memorial, has recently been opened by a group of German foundations and Hope Worldwide, and it is said to be state of the art. While the hospital’s mission is to help children and expectant mothers, it will also treat expats (and not just of the mother-and-child variety). Patients are charged on a sliding scale, and foreigners are expected to pay $20 for an consultation with a Western doctor.
