medical hospital in thailand

Bangkok Phuket Hospital began its construction in July 1993. The hospital is a joint venture between Bangkok Dusit Medical Services Plc.(BDMS), Anuphas & Sons Co., Ltd. and a group of local investors. The total investment at the time was 800 million Baht.

Bangkok Phuket Hospital is the part of BGH group with 15 hospitals and 1 pharmacy manufacturing under its umbrella, thus sharing know how and resources within the network of hospitals and affiliated medical institutions.

Up-to-date communication facilities are installed to enable fast and efficient decision making with Bangkok General Hospital. The telemedicine installation can transmit x-ray images and patient data, including real-time cardiac monitoring, to BGH thus giving full access to other specialists for further consultation.

A hospital cannot function without doctors, nurses and technical staff. Out of our 630 persons strong staff team, BPK employs 56 full-time physicians across the spectrum of medical care and a further 75 on a consulting basis.

BPK, Bangkok Hospital Phuket consider training to be one of the cornerstones of our growth and development. They have implemented continuous training programs to ensure that the personnel remain at the forefront of medical performance.

BPK received Hospital Accreditation and Prime Minister's Export Award 2004, for Best Service Provider in 2004.

Bangkok Phuket Hospital has been single-minded yet flexible in its approach to embrace new ideas as it strives to give the best care, attention and services possible.
