Summary: Explore healthcare options for expatriates and digital nomads in Kampong Cham: uncover top-rated providers, hospitals, and medical facilities to meet your needs while living abroad in Kampong Cham.

The healthcare system in Kampong Cham, is a mix of public and private facilities. While the public healthcare system is accessible to foreigners, many expats and digital nomads prefer to use private hospitals for serious medical emergencies and major surgeries.

Cambodia's Healthcare System

The public healthcare system in Cambodia is called the Ministry of Health. It is responsible for providing healthcare services to the population, including foreigners. However, public hospitals in Kampong Cham are often overcrowded and may lack the necessary equipment and resources for serious medical emergencies and major surgeries. As a result, many people, including expats and digital nomads, prefer to use private hospitals for such cases. Private hospitals in Kampong Cham generally offer better facilities, equipment, and services compared to public hospitals.

Hospitals and Clinics for Expats in Kampong Cham

Some recommended hospitals and clinics in Kampong Cham include:

  • Kampong Cham Provincial Hospital (public) - located in Kampong Cham city
  • Chamkar Leu Referral Hospital (public) - located in Chamkar Leu district
  • Prey Chhor Referral Hospital (public) - located in Prey Chhor district
  • Stung Trang Referral Hospital (public) - located in Stung Trang district
However, due to the limited facilities in Kampong Cham, expats may need to travel to Phnom Penh, the capital city of Cambodia, for specialized medical care and surgeries. Phnom Penh is approximately 124 kilometers (77 miles) away from Kampong Cham by car.

Emergency Services in Kampong Cham

Ambulance services are available in Kampong Cham, but they may not be as reliable or prompt as those in more developed countries. To call for an ambulance, dial 119. However, it is important to note that there may be delays in response times, especially in rural areas.

Health Insurance Companies in Kampong Cham

Popular private health insurers in Kampong Cham include Forte Insurance, Cambodia Life Insurance, and Sovannaphum Life Assurance. Expats and digital nomads typically use these companies for their health insurance needs. However, some may also opt for specialized expat health insurance providers that cater specifically to their unique requirements.
