Bumrungrad— Asia’s Pioneer of Cited Medical Excellence

Bumrungrad Hospital has helped make Thailand one of the world’s most trusted medical tourism destinations. In 2002, Bumrungrad became the first hospital in Asia to earn Joint Commission International (JCI) accreditation.

Thailand Medical Tourism

Thailand, along with its Asian neighbors Singapore and India, accounts for 90% of Asia’s medical tourism market. Each year, over a million foreigners plan their medical travel around a Thailand holiday clubbing sight-seeing with medical treatments. On the tourism front, Thailand has been a popular destination for decades.

In the past few years, Thailand has gained a reputation as a high-quality and reliable medical tourism destination. In no small part, Thailand owes it to the hospitality of the Thai people. Thailand has earned the eponym of the 'Land of Smiles'. The Thais treat their guests with the utmost respect and try to serve them the best way they can. On another hand, Thailand medical tourism has seen its popularity rise owing to the fact that it is home to many internationally accredited hospitals. These hospitals offer a gamut of treatments, right from cosmetic/plastic surgery and dental tourism to organ transplants at affordable rates.

Some procedures will cost you 1/10th of the price it would take for similar medical procedures in the US, UK or Australia. Hospitals here boast the latest technology, and are equipped with language translators and exclusive international wings to cater to foreign patients. Many doctors and physicians in Thailand have medical certifications from the UK and US, and attend to patients with consummate professionalism and great care.
