Khema International Polyclinic opens a new branch at Beoung Keng Kang

In an effort to empower and improve the standards of the healthcare sector in Cambodia, Khema International Polyclinic has opened a second branch, equipped with the latest technology in the medical field, in Boeung Keng Kang 1.

The opening of the second branch is intended to provide a more extensive health service to the public and reduce unnecessary travel time that would otherwise be used to seek health services overseas.

According to the clinic, the trend of people leaving the Kingdom to seek medical treatment and receive medical checkups has reduced over the past few years, which coincided with the official launch of the first Khema International Polyclinic in 2012, located in the Toul Kork district.

Dr Som Leakhena, head of Khema International Polyclinic, said the second Khema International Polyclinic comes following the positive feedback it received from the first clinic, which offers the most updated medical technology.

“After providing ethical, professional, and responsible health care services, the public seems to have put more trust in our medical team, because we can be communicated with easily, [we are] less costly, and we save time. What’s important is the efficiency in our treatment, which is equivalent to that abroad,” Leakhena said.

“There are some Khema International Polyclinic patients who used to travel overseas for their medical treatment, but now, they are accepting treatments in Cambodia. “

He explained that currently, the medical field was improving alongside other fields such as human resources, doctors’ capability, medical technology, medicine, sanitation, and last but not least, doctors’ ethics, upon which Khema International Polyclinic places a great deal of emphasis.

Khema International Polyclinic BKK1 is a 10-storey clinic comprising 50 rooms, and is “equipped with the latest machines and technology, waiting to save lives and provide health services to our nation, including CT machine to clearly diagnose many types of problems. For instance, it allows us to see clots in small arteries,” Leakhena said.

General health consultations are catered to children, adults, and expats. It includes a maternity clinic, and contraceptive, operation, and emergency rooms.

With the medical team being equipped with the latest medical technology, Khema International Polyclinic is able to consult and diagnose all medical problems accurately, ranging from general surgery, problems of the heart, brain vessels, arteries and veins, nerves, liver, opportunistic infections and diseases, up to full body scans.

Emergency services include a fully-equipped ambulance and endoscopy equipment to diagnose many problems from clotting, inflammation, or infection. In addition, there are consultation services for social illnesses such as high blood pressure and diabetes.

There is another type of scan, which is scanning the blood vessels for clots. After finding out the clot’s location, the machine will expand and insert a ring in there.

For maternity care, Khema International Polyclinic offers three types of services. The first one is natural birth with help from professional midwives. Second is natural birth using anaesthetic and third is a caesarean section.

Khema International Polyclinic was founded by a team of local investors with many years of experience in the public health field, and is run by a team of highly professional, talented, and ethical medical team.

Khema International Polyclinic, which took 18 months to complete, is located on street 294, BKK1, 800 metres from the Independent Monument.

Khema International Polyclinic will be officially opened for business on September 3, with Men Sam An, Deputy Prime Minister, Minister of National Assembly–Senate Relations and Inspection, presiding over the launch.
