The Khmero Sovietic Friendship hospital was inaugurated in 1960. Financed by the USSR, it was the biggest hospital in all of South-East Asia at that time. Today it's the biggest hospital of Phnom Penh with a capacity of 500 beds and a staff of 521 people. Taking into account the age of the building, the infrastructures are still of a good quality. The hospital is specialized in 3 types of care: surgery, oncology and pneumology. It is also the only hospital to have an anatomopatology laboratory.
The renovation of the Microbiology Unit will be finished at the beginning of January 2009.
