Established in 1980, the venerated Bumrungrad International Hospital serves more than 1 million patients per year, including more than 400,000 international patients who visit from 190 countries.

This 580-bed facility provides a full range of tertiary healthcare services, including 19 operating rooms equipped for most general surgery and surgical specialties. Some are minimally invasive, including cardiothoracic, orthopedic, urological, ophthalmological, laser, transplant, and otolaryngological (ear, nose, and throat) surgeries.

Bumrungrad International was the first hospital in Asia to obtain JCI accreditation (2002) and has been re accredited four times since then, as recently as 2017. One of Thailand’s 61 JCI-accredited hospitals, Bumrungrad was the first Asian hospital to receive JCI disease-specific accreditation for its stroke and heart programs.

Of its 1,200 physicians, surgeons, and consultants, approximately 220 are US board-certified, making the facility a favorite of Western medical travelers, expats and regional business executives.

Bumrungrad International’s 34 clinical specialties include cardiology, orthopedics, oncology, endocrinology (diabetes and metabolism), nephrology (kidneys), neurology, and nutrition.

Bumrungrad International’s Heart Center offers pacemaker implantation, invasive and noninvasive procedures for congenital heart disease, valvoplasty (balloon valve treatment) and valve replacement, and coronary artery bypass graft (CABG).

The hospital’s Horizon Regional Cancer Center employs such advanced techniques as image-guided radiotherapy and HD brachytherapy. Orthopedic procedures, such as hip replacements and resurfacing, are also popular among international patients.

Unlike most hospitals, Bumrungrad’s costs are transparent to the patient the facility posts all-in package pricing for more than 70 procedures in 30 specialty areas, including health screenings, cosmetic surgery, women's medicine and urology. Patients might be surprised to see that Bumrungrad offers pricing packages for procedures as complex as as a hip replacement or a coronary artery bypass.

Similarly, Bumrungrad is one of the only hospitals in the world to post actual costs online, through its REALCOST program, which tracks invoices of some 40 procedures performed within the previous 30 days.

Bumrungrad's international patients services department welcomes more cross-border patients than any other hospital, with 19 affiliate offices and staff fluent in English, Thai, Amharic, Arabic, Bengali, Burmese, Cambodian, Chinese, French, German, Japanese, Korean, Mongolian and Vietnamese.

For patients who wish to recover near the hospital, Bumrungrad International offers two Bumrungrad Residences and Bumrungrad Suites. For rates and further information, visit the hospital’s website.

"I could not help notice the exceptional operating standards and service that we experienced so it is no wonder Bumrungrad International has a reputation for being the best hospital in Thailand, Asia and one of the finest in the World." - Stacey Walton
