Dr. Narongrit said “Bangkok Hospital Phuket has now been open for over 18 years, and we are now ready to open a new hospital which will be located on Chaofah West Road, Muang, Phuket, opposite Phuket Villa Chaofah. We plan to open the hospital early in 2014 in order to better serve patients who are suffering from uncomplicated diseases and illnesses, and the medical costs will be reasonable.
“The service standards will be similar to those offered at Bangkok Hospital Phuket, but the costs will be at least 30% less because the new hospital is a medium-sized hospital and the management costs of the buildings, tools, medical personnel etc will be considerably lower.
“The new hospital will use a budget of around 600 million baht investment, and its 2 buildings will be located on a 10 rai plot of land. It will be a 100-bed hospital but it will be able to handle between 200 – 400 patients per day. The hospital will be able to deal with general illnesses including digestive & liver, ear throat and nose, bones & joints, obstetrics & gynecology. It will also feature a children’s clinic.”
