Language & Interpreters

A high percentage of patients at Samitivej International Hospital are coming to us from other countries. It is important to us that all of our international patients are able to effectively communicate with their doctors. To this end, we have a staff of in-hospital interpreters fluent in many languages. We are happy to provide free interpreters for English, Korean, Burmese, Japanese and Arabic speaking patients during normal business hours (8:00am to 5:00pm daily).

We will gladly arrange an interpreter outside of normal business hours, however this will be at an additional expense to the patient. The hospital can also provide interpreters for other languages, such as Russian or Mandarin, but this will also be at the patient’s additional expense. If you have concerns or questions about interpreters during your stay, please do not hesitate to contact us at
