Our Staff

96 Cambodian and 20 foreign staff

Mercy Medical Center is staffed with workers from across the globe in partnership with local Cambodian employees and volunteers. We are a conglomerate of Christian organizations with a heart to care for the people of Cambodia through healthcare. Training in every area of operations is an integral part of our work; our Cambodian staff members are vital to the work of MMC.
