For the second year in a row, Samitivej Sukhumvit Hospital has been ranked as one of the Top 10 World’s Best Hospitals for Medical Tourists for 2018. Among the world’s top 10 hospitals, Samitivej was named the best in Asia by the Medical Travel Quality Alliance (MTQUA), the world’s leading hospital ranking. MTQUA furthermore recognizes Samitivej as the healthcare “provider of choice” for both Bangkok’s local residents and large expatriate community.

Samitivej is honored by MTQUA for its “award-winning facility providing internationally accredited quality healthcare”. The highest ranked hospital in Asia is recommended “as a caring, high quality, doctor-focused hospital like no other in Thailand, catering to the highly demanding international expatriate community of westerners and Japanese families, diplomats and business people”.

MTQUA Top 10 Hospitals is the world’s leading rating to achieve distinction in clinical excellence and medical travel achievement. MTQUA praises the no. 1 hospital for medical tourism in Asia “as a global standard of care to the international community” that “puts patients first”. MTQUA highlights Samitivej’s significant renovations over the past two years to further improve the state-of-the-art facilities while focusing on a seamless doctor-patient relationship: “Hospital staff pride themselves in making the medical process straightforward and the least stressful as possible for overseas patients. They understand how important it is for each patient to find the right doctor.” A dedicated correspondence team personally helps patients through the process of finding a physician or medical specialist, MTQUA says.

No longer in the shadow of its bigger brothers, Bangkok Hospital and Bumrungrad International, Samitivej is also recognized by MTQUA as “the provider of choice for both local residents and expatriates living in Thailand”. Long their favorite, Samitivej is furthermore drawing a growing number of medical travelers from China, South Asia and the Middle East, reports MTQUA. Thailand’s overall medical tourism market, crossing the US$ 5 billion mark in 2017, grows at an astounding annual rate of 20%.

Samitivej Hospital boasts more than 400 medical specialists and provides multi-lingual customer relations and immigration services.
