Construction on Phnom Penh’s first international-standard critical-care center is expected to begin in April, and when completed it will offer state-of-the-art medical technology and highly trained staff, according to an official with the Japanese firm in charge of the project. “[Construction] is supposed to start from April or May 2014,” Mihoko Nakayama, overseas project manager for Kitahara Neurosurgical Institute Japan, said Monday. Ms. Nakayama said the hospital, which is part of the larger Japan-based Kitahara International Hospital group, will be built in the city’s Chroy Changva commune, across the Cambodia-Japan Friendship Bridge, and will cost about $35 million.
