May 21, 2008
When it comes to provide world-class facilities for their patients, the expat hospitals in Bangkok generally rank highly. They operate 24 hour emergency service with specialist physicians to provide treatment in emergency situations.

For comfort, reliability and efficiency of service, these hospitals maintain a fleet of ambulance, motor lance (motorcycle ambulance) and helicopter. Each of the vehicles are assorted with life saving equipment and provided with professional doctors and nurses with many years of experience in this field. They have received extensive training in Advance Life Support Program.

Expat hospitals also deliver emergency medical evacuation services utilizing helicopter and/or airplane. Patients are airlifted to the hospital in aircrafts fitted with necessary life-saving equipment and also possessing specially trained doctors and nurses for in-flight medical treatment. Technical equipments are of the highest class and all the expertise you need is also provided.

For instance, it is comparatively easy to take an MRI of your brain or limbs in Bangkok if you want, while at least in some so called developed countries in Europe, this is not always the case. If you undergo some surgery even requiring epidural anesthesia, the procedures you go through are very well arranged. So, you will feel in safe hands altogether when going for treatment.

The doctor may not be available in these expat hospitals all the time as can be seen in Europe or the U.S, but the nursing staff will give you all the attention you require by monitoring you around the clock to check on your condition.

The cost of treatment in these expat hospitals looks to be well calculated, and not at random. You will be informed before treatment about the resulting price and you pay in advance. There is a possibility for small extra costs or reimbursements and they can be settled before discharge. The fees of the doctors in most expat hospitals in Bangkok are not notably less, even though less than what you would spend in Europe and surely the U.S.

You will be astonished when you hear the low costs for nursing care, the room etc. Calculate your room and nursing costs for almost 3,000-6,000 baht per day only. So if you are puzzled and uneasy departing the expat hospital soon, and being rooted to your hotel room, just try to delay your departure from the expat hospital a little, where you do not have to be too much concerned, in the event some additional problem surfaces.

Outpatient treatment is also well arranged in most expat hospitals in Bangkok. At least here you are not required to pay in advance. The doctor's fee is also very affordable and will be in the 500-800 bath range. Regarding the fees of other services, a standard chest X-ray costs about 250 baht, electrocardiogram 500 baht, MRI (including radiologist fee) about 10,000 baht, standard blood examination (including lipid profile) about 3000-4000 baht.

Apart from having up-to-date facilities and offering calm and peaceful environment, most expat hospitals in Bangkok offers enviable traffic control in almost all parts of the region. Bangkok provides you quick and easy access and excellent transportation facilities. Reaching almost every expat hospital from most roads in Bangkok is relatively easy.

Besides the superb facilities for the vehicles, Bangkok also sincerely attempt to provide attractive service for pedestrians as well even if they are crossing a road or doing something else. If you are planning to receive medical service from a hospital in Asia, there will be few better choices than expat hospitals in Bangkok.
