Whether you’re just a visitor or a permanent resident in Cambodia, you’ll want to be informed on the state of healthcare here. Fear not! Realestate.com.kh has you covered with another comprehensive guide. This one is a complete guide to medical facilities in Phnom Penh. That includes hospitals, clinics, dental offices and pharmacies.

If you’re searching for an apartment or condo in Phnom Penh you might want to be near a good clinic. Perhaps you want to live in the district with the best hospital. Anyway, it doesn’t hurt to stay informed.

Scroll down the page to browse the complete list of medical facilities below. However, if you want a bit of background on medical facilities in Cambodia here’s a breakdown:

Hospital: To airlift or not to airlift?

If you peruse forums online you’ll find that Cambodia gets a bad rap for the state of its healthcare. In fact, most people will say you should head to Thailand for anything more than a routine doctor visit. 

These sentiments are definitely exaggerated. There are plenty of quality medical facilities here. You just have to know where to look. In an emergency, private hospitals are the way to go. In non-urgent cases try looking around for a specialist with a good reputation. Foreigners usually steer clear of state hospitals, with perhaps Calmette being an exception in some cases.

If you have traveller’s insurance, or get coverage through your work, make sure you know which facilities are covered by your provider. 

Not covered? Not a huge deal, at least in Cambodia. Care is quite cheap compared to many other countries across the world. We’ve also given a cost rating to the facilities on the list below.

Clinics on every corner

When they say “don’t judge a book by its cover” they probably didn’t have clinics in mind. There seems to be clinics on almost every street in Cambodia. Ignore the dingy places and go to a place in a bigger, nicer building. 

After all, healthcare isn’t an area of your life you should be stingy. 

The same goes for pharmacies and dental clinics. You’ll find tons across Phnom Penh. Yet your best bet for quality service is to go to one of the most upscale places. Stick to the ones on our list and you’ll be fine.

So, without further ado, here’s the complete list of quality medical facilities in Cambodia:
