The event was attended by a record 880 delegates from 34 countries and 398 organisations. The awards programme, now in its twelfth year, recognises and honours hospitals in Asia that have implemented or enhanced outstanding and innovative projects, programmes, and best practices during the previous year. This year’s awards garnered 298 entries representing 78 hospitals across 13 countries.
The awards are the final event of the Asian Hospital Management conference, which positions itself as Asia’s premier learning conference and expo for healthcare managers, clinicians and leaders. It includes a CEO Forum and Health Leaders Summit, which focus on providing updates on best management practices in the industry.
Tourism Authority of Thailand Governor Suraphon Svetasreni complimented the award winner for their commitment to raising the standards of the health and wellness sector. “It is exactly this kind of commitment which continues to raise Thailand’s image and attract thousands of visitors to seek medical care here.
“The health and wellness sector is one of our key target niche markets in our 2014 action plan. We hope to see more foreign health and wellness visitors taking advantage of our world-class and constantly improving facilities and services, as clearly exemplified by these awards,” the governor said.
