Medical Care and Services

Beginning with a focused government effort in 2003 to make Thailand a preeminent medical country in Asia, Thailand has excelled in many medical areas. Most international hospitals in Thailand have achieved international standards and their medical services are ranked among the best in the world. International hospitals are located in Bangkok, and scattered in all tourist cities such as Pattaya, Chiang Mai, Hua Hin, Ko Samui, and Phuket.

Thailand s private hospitals have modern diagnostic equipment and all the latest medical technologies such as Gamma Knife Brain Surgery or CABG and Magnetic Resonance Imaging or MRI scans to serve the needs. Also there is an emergency 24-hour service, which will provide ambulances or helicopters to transport patients if necessary.

Many Thai hospitals have been approved for Hospital Accreditation by certification organizations such as ISO 9002, ISO 9001:2000, ISO 14000 and ISO 18000.
