Beate Richner Hospital founder seriously ill in Cambodia


Recommended Posts

Beat Richner, the founder and head of the Kantha Bopha Children’s Hospital and a Health Ministry adviser, is seriously ill and has resigned from his position as managing director. In a press release from the hospital on Tuesday, the board of the Kantha Bopha Foundation in Zurich, Switzerland, said Dr. Richner was seriously ill and would step down immediately.

Peter Studer, the vice-president of the board, will take over. “The hospital will still operate as usual even though Dr. Richner is seriously ill,” the press release said.

“Dr. Richner and board members have developed a strategy to ensure the continuity of the hospitals as a high-quality model offering free child and maternal healthcare.” In early 2015, the government declared the hospitals as models for the Cambodian health system. In March 2016, Dr. Richner was nominated as a special adviser to the Health Ministry with the same status as a secretary of state.
