AKP Phnom Penh, June 25, 2020 --
The construction of the nearly-US$50 million Cambodia-China Friendship Thbong Khmum Hospital is due to complete in September 2021, H.E Dr. Cheam Chansophorn, Governor of Thbong Khmum province told a press conference organised here this morning by the Royal Government Spokesperson Unit.
Located on an area of 24,300 square metres, the 300-bed hospital will be equipped with up-to-date medical equipment.

Once finished, the Cambodia-China Friendship Thbong Khmum Hospital will become a regional hospital serving the people of Kratie, Rattanakiri, Stung Treng, and Mondulkiri provinces.
This is the second big project funded by the Government of China after Cambodia-China Friendship Preah Kossamak Hospital in Phnom Penh whose groundbreaking ceremony took place in October 2018
