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:
Should you use Phnom Penh hospitals or get airlifted?
If you peruse forums online you’ll find that Phnom Penh hospitals sometimes get a bad rap for the state of their healthcare. In fact, many people will say you should head to Thailand for anything more than a routine doctor visit.
These sentiments can definitely be exaggerated. There are plenty of quality medical facilities in Phnom Penh and the state of medical care is constantly improving. You just have to know where to look and the Facebook expat groups can be useful although you will rarely get a unified opinion about a place.
In an emergency, there are private hospitals in Phnom Penh that can properly assist you. In non-urgent cases try looking around for s medical professional with a clinic in Phnom Penh and/or a specialist with a good reputation. Foreigners usually steer clear of state hospitals, with perhaps Calmette hospital 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. In 2020, medical insurance in Cambodia grew by 2.2 per cent, mainly influenced by COVID-19.
Expatriates will often look for insurance cover that includes medivac (medical evacuation) to hospital care services in nearby countries such as Thailand in medical emergencies.
Not covered? This might not be a huge deal for minor medical conditions, at least in Cambodia. Hospitals and clinics in Phnom Penh are quite cheap compared to many other countries across the world.
We’ve also given a cost rating to the facilities on the list below.
Find a pharmacy after visiting Phnom Penh hospitals
When they say “don’t judge a book by its cover” they probably didn’t have clinics in mind. Every street seems to have a clinic, in Phnom Penh, at least. Ignore the dingy-looking places and generally go to a clinic in a bigger, nicer building. Many hospitals in Phnom Penh even have their own clinic onsite.
Healthcare isn’t an area of your life in which you should be stingy, so medical insurance and the knowledge you can be airlifted to international hospitals in the region does offer peace of mind.
There are tons of pharmacies and dental clinics across Phnom Penh. Your best bet for quality service is to go to one of the most upscale facilities - Stick to the ones on our list and you’ll be fine but it never hurts to do some research before you go.
So, without further ado, here’s the complete list of quality Phnom Penh hospitals, clinics, dentists, and pharmacies:
