PM: Fund Raised for Calmette Hospital Increases to US$100 Million

Prime Minister Samdech Akka Moha Sena Padei Techo Hun Sen has informed his compatriots that the fund raised from charitable people for the modernisation of Calmette hospital had now reached more than US$70 million, after the campaign started in late November.

Until the morning of Dec. 6, 2019, the total fund was recorded at US$70,191,994 and 32,110,000 Riel, pointed out the Premier on his official Facebook page this morning.

If we add the national budget of US$30 million up, the total amount rose to over US$100 million, he said, underlining that with this fund, we have the possibility to modernise Calmette Hospital into a polytechnic centre to provide more effective medical treatment to people.

According to its online source, Calmette Hospital was built in 1958 as a French Polyclinic and was quasi-totally destroyed during the Khmer Rouge regime, from 1975 to 1979. Calmette became a public hospital and reopened the doors in early 1980s with a few healthcare providers survived from the massacre.

With the status of one of autonomous financing public establishments for health, Calmette has been able to invest during the last twenty years in modernisation of all its clinical services, from general to specialised services and facilities supported by its available advanced technologies and notably by more and more highly experienced human resources involvement. The hospital has been playing the key role in medical professional education by collaborating with its national, regional and international health sciences universities members.
