Global Accreditation Ensures Quality Healthcare in Thailand

  1. 1. Thailand prides itself on having a modern, state-of-the-art medical system and many hospitals have gone through the most rigorous accreditation and certification processes, passing with flying colors. In 2002, Thailand was the first Asian country to achieve the prestigious Joint Commission International (JCI) accreditation, and today over 28 hospitals in Thailand have received JCI accreditation. Introduction
  2. 2. In addition to Thailand being one of the world’s premier tourist destinations, more and more visitors are being drawn to the Kingdom for another reason: the high quality and amazing prices of the country’s medical care. In fact, savvy medical tourists are receiving world-class treatment, then recuperating in one of Thailand’s gorgeous and relaxing holiday destinations, such as Bangkok, Koh Samui, Phuket, Chiang Mai, Hua Hin, or Pattaya.

As medical tourists become increasingly aware of Thailand’s international accreditations, high quality facilities and amenities, modern medical technologies, and incredible patient services, their numbers have been increasing accordingly. The last five years has seen these numbers double, with patients streaming in from the UK, the US, the Middle East (UAE, Kuwait, and Oman), Germany, Australia, Japan, and her fellow ASEAN countries.
  4. 4. There are various types of accreditation and certification available to medical facilities, some international and others domestic. The most prestigious is Joint Commission International (JCI) and their more specialized Clinical Care Program Certification (CCPC).

JCI-accredited Chiang Mai Ram Hospital is one of the more affordable accredited hospitals in the country; this is because you get the finest treatment available at some of the best value in Thailand.

A short 2 ½ hour’s drive from Bangkok, it has excellent golf courses, an amazing beach, its own floating markets, and – quite amazingly for a town its size – the JCI-accredited Bangkok Hospital Hua Hin. This is no longer a sleepy fishing village, but an outstanding city by the sea to head where you can receive world-class medical treatment, and then relax in this tranquil town.
