“Saving Lives Is My Job”
Our hospital’s slogan is “Saving lives is my job”.
Everyone helps each other in Cambodia.
However, in Cambodia, there are still many people who cannot get medical care because of poverty and who die because of it.
“If I don’t have money, I can’t go to the hospital and get medical treatment.”
I feel that such awareness is widespread among residents and healthcare professionals. No matter where in the world, rich or poor, human life should be equal. We value life as much as possible.
Saving lives is our job.
Even if life itself is not saved, it should be cherished until the last moment. We want to save lives and hearts as much as we can. It’s not just work, it’s our way of life.
No matter how hard the work is, if it saves the life that is about to spill, our hearts are filled with more rewards.
Of course, there are limits to the medical care we can provide.
Still, we do our best.
For those who want to do their best for people through medical care, I want you to come here.
Work is not just for money.
“Saving lives” is our job.
