Sunrise Japan Hospital Opens

Sunrise Japan Hospital Opens

With the opening of the Sunrise hospital in Phnom Penh in September 2016, people in Cambodia now can access Japanese-standard health care at an affordable price.

The Sunrise Japan Hospital Phnom Penh project was Joint Venture by GJC Corporation, INCJ, and Kitahara Medical Strategies International. The project broke ground in 2015 and saw a capital investment of USD35 million, including a loan from Japan’s development agency (JICA).

Built by Cambodian contractor Ly Chhuong Construction Co. Ltd, the 4-storey hospital is built on a total floor area of 4,500 square metres on the Chroy Changvar peninsular. It has 50-beds with a plan to upgrade to 200 beds with more than 100 members of staff, of which 30 percent are Japanese.

The hospital operation is being run by a team of Japanese doctors, nurses and related medical professionals, who also provide training and work with experienced Cambodian medical staff members.

The hospital has 4 Centers. They are Emergency Center (Emergency/Trauma Surgery/ Infectious Disease), General Medical Center (General Internal Medicine/ General Surgery/Gastrointestinal Medicine/Cardiology/Remote Consultation), Stroke and Neurosurgery Center (Neurosurgery/ Neuroendovascular Therapy/Neurology/Rehabilitation), Health Checkup Center (Basic/Comprehensive/Special Package.

This Japanese-run hospital opened its door to patients on 17 October 2016 and opened all facilities at the end of October. The international-standard hospital will serve both locals and expats. “Common sickness and injuries, emergency response and healthcare management (complete medical checkups) that were previously insufficient will be covered so that we can take part in the Cambodian medical infrastructure and help the people live a healthy lifestyle,” said Sunrise Japan Hospital Phnom Penh’s CEO Toshiaki Fukuda.

“Having a hospital with such high standards isn’t just beneficial for the Cambodian population. It builds trust among investors and tourists with money who come from far away,” said Prime Minister Hun Sen at the hospital’s grand opening event in September 2016.

Neurosurgeon Yoshifumi Hayashi, the 50-bed hospital’s clinical director, told the Cambodia Daily that a specialist wing at Sunrise Japan is planned for adjacent land, though specifics haven’t been decided. “All of the hospital’s non-Japanese staff, currently has 80 out of 104 were sent to Japan for training for six months to a year, a perk that will continue for new staff.”

Fees for care would be less than in Thailand and Singapore, and cheaper than the priciest of Phnom Penh hospitals, Dr. Hayashi said. “I can’t say it’s very, very low, and everyone can come. But you’re confident of quality.”

The last major private hospital opened in the capital was the USD50 million Royal Phnom Penh Hospital, which was built by Bangkok Dusit Medical Services and completed in 2014. That Thai hospital contains five operating rooms, 12 intensive care units, 40 out-patient examination rooms, and 100 rooms.
