Mercy Medical Center Cambodia (MMCC) is a non-profit Christian Hospital located in Phnom Penh, Cambodia.
We have a development model where we train Cambodian healthcare workers and aim to have MMCC fully staffed and led by Cambodians. There is currently 100 Cambodian staff and 20 expatriate staff at MMCC.
MMCC has a unique system for acquiring patients. We have established referring partnerships with local NGOs, local churches and Christian mission organizations. All of our patients are referred through these partnerships.
By working through referring partners we hope to avoid typical pitfalls of medical ministry: treating ongoing poverty as relief rather than development. Our patients take some measure of responsibility for their care and their referring partner is able to provide a reliable social assessment, as well as follow-up and some financial assistance.
