Established in 1972 by a group of physicians and 30 nurses, Bangkok Hospital was among the pioneers of private healthcare in Thailand and the region. In the ensuing 40 years, the institution has proceeded to build its reputation as one of the country’s most trusted tertiary care facilities, with specialised units and hospitals, staffed by leading experts.
Today, Bangkok Hospitals offer the full spectrum of medical care, from diagnosis and health check, to treatment, to rehabilitation and after-care, with processes certified by the Joint Commission International. The hospital’s mission, as stated on their website, is “We are committed to being the leader in providing internationally accepted, efficient and ethical high quality care through a dedicated healthcare team, effective leadership and up to date technology.”
