PPSEZ to get clinic

A private clinic aiming to provide medical care to factory workers in the Phnom Penh Special Economic Zone (SEZ) will open this month, the health centre’s managing director said yesterday.

“We have so many clients that visit our clinic in [our] Daun Penh location [Chenda Polyclinic] that we thought opening up a second clinic capable of delivering 500 pre-employment tests per day would really help factory workers,” Chenda II Polyclinic founder and director Kanyapak Reinvetch said.

The clinic will also be able to offer ophthalmology, medical imaging, vaccinations and laboratory services.

Facilities will include 25 beds and one operating room for workers who can afford treatment, Reinvetch added.

Officially set to open June 24, the clinic will be housed in two four-storey commercial buildings just outside the SEZ. Medical care for workers in the SEZ is “ideal” considering malnourishment and fainting issues, said Joel Preston, a consultant with the Community Legal Education Center.
