Medical tourism centre partnership in Cambodia

 

Developers in Cambodia are partnering with a Bangkok-based health care consultancy to establish a medical centre in Phnom Penh, Cambodia, in the hopes of establishing the capital as a medical tourism destination.

Singapore Medical Centre (SGMC), a Cambodia-based company owned by Sear Rithy and his business partner Tan Teck Kee, has partnered with Bangkok-based health care management company AJT Holdings to launch a medical centre inside Phnom Penh’s luxury condominium complex The Bridge. The $8 million medical centre is set to open in the third quarter of 2018.

The Bridge, a $300 million mixed-use project is a joint development project between Worldbridge Land, run by Rithy and Tan, and Singapore-based Oxley Holdings.

The centre seeks to provide medical care at lower rates than in Singapore, though it is only aimed at the small slice of the Cambodian population that could afford international medical care.

Singapore sees medical tourists from Cambodia, so one target market is those Cambodians who will be able to get cheaper and similar treatment in Vietnam. The other target market is medical tourists going to Vietnam from Laos, and Vietnamese expats living in Taiwan and China.

SGMC will consider setting up additional centres in Phnom Penh, Sihanoukville and Siem Reap over the next two years.
