Phuket International Hospital, part of BDMS Southern Group, hosts the Grand Opening: “We’re Family” in the concept of “Caring for everyone like family members”. In the Grand-Opening bandwagon are Children’s Clinic, Phuket International Dermatology Institute (PDI), and Ayuravadhana Geriatric Clinic. This will also coincide with the official launch of “Expat Privilege Card”, which provides exclusive privileges for all expatriates in Phuket and nearby provinces.
On 20 August 2016, Khun Wassana Tipayapongtada, Chairwoman of the Provincial Red Cross Chapter of Phuket, presided over the Grand Opening: “We’re Family” in the presence of BDMS Southern Group management and staff, Thai and foreign dignitaries, local authorities, local businesses, and members of the press and media. It took place on the main foyer, 3rd floor, Phuket International Building, Phuket International Hospital.
According to Dr. Kongkiat Kespechara, CEO Group 6, Bangkok Dusit Medical Services (PLC) & Managing Director, Phuket International Hospital has been established to serve local people in line with the vision of Maj. Dr. Anuroj Tharasiriroj, its founder. Although the hospital has become part of BDMS Southern Group since late 2014, in addition to Bangkok Hospital Phuket and Dibuk Hospital in Phuket, the management is committed to carrying on with Dr. Anuroj’s legacies. Phuket International Hospital will continue to be a trustworthy healthcare provider for people in Phuket and nearby provinces, as well as expatriates and tourists.
In order to press ahead with the commitment above and further secure trust from clients, the hospital has managed to retain its old charm and common touch with local residents. It has geared up to cater to all medical needs of all ages: from prenatal care and childbirth, to pediatric care, to elderly care. That is why BDMS Southern Group management found it opportune to hold the Grand Opening: “We’re Family” in the concept of “Caring for everyone like family members”, throwing the limelight on Children’s Clinic, Phuket International Dermatology Institute (PDI), and Ayuravadhana Geriatric Clinic, along with the Expat Privilege Card launch.
Children’s Clinic has been spruced up to create a colorful and amazing environment inspired by Lego Thailand, which is ideal for children’s learning, imagination and creativity. Phuket International Dermatology Institute (PDI) has, in turn, emerged as a mecca for all types of skin care by internationally qualified dermatologists specializing in both cosmetic skin care and complex skin disease. And human life will round it all up at the Ayuravadhana Geriatric Clinic, which will deliver most professional and comprehensive elderly care, with the Phuket Vaccine Clinic in tandem offering protection against diseases at all ages.
Today, Phuket is not only one the world’s most glamorous holiday destinations boasting millions of tourists each year, but it is also home to a large number of expatriates settling here around the island. Therefore, Phuket International Hospital would like to unveil the Expat Privilege Card in a bid to ensure better healthcare and exclusive privileges for those expatriates living in Phuket and nearby provinces. The card will be in use at all the 3 BDMS Southern Group hospitals (Bangkok Hospital Phuket, Phuket International Hospital and Dibuk Hospital).
Khun Wassana Tipayapongtada, Chairwoman of the Provincial Red Cross Chapter of Phuket, concluded that Phuket International Hospital was the first private hospital in Phuket, and that it had long been frequented by local people in Phuket and nearby provinces, as well as expatriates and tourists. It is heartening to learn that BDMS Southern Group management is committed to delivering the greatest healthcare benefits and convenience on the back of fully fledged medical capabilities. It will be more than reassuring as to comprehensive medical care for all people of all ages. The governor is strongly confident that Phuket International Hospital will stay by the side of Phuket people, those from neighboring provinces, and foreigners in a sustainable and truly reliable manner.
