Nakonthan Hospital- Treating Patients With Patience World Wide!

As medical tourism is catching up I have decided to give you information on each and every hospital. Nakornthon Hospital has been situated in Thonburi (Bangkok,Thailand).It is founded on November 10,1996.The motto of this hospital is to offer the best possible  health care treatment to patients of all around the world. Nakornthon Hospital is one of the Medical tourism hospitals of Bangkok.The hospital is well known for multidisciplinary teams of trained specialists. It consists of 500 beds,15 specialty centers and an ISO 9001:2000 certification, as well as the Thailand Hospital Accreditation.
The Hospital has many specialty centers, including:
•Assisted Reproductive Technology (ART)
•Skin, Cosmetic, and Laser
The Hospital has an active community support program including providing mobile medical services, cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) training, and disaster medical aid partnership. Round  the year, Nakornthon Hospital hosts multiple events to promote health and well-being in the community, including:
Health Empowerment Program, which provides a series of health seminars free of charge to the community.
NT Sport Events, which includes a series of competitions among local area businesses to promote health and well-being   
Nakornthon Hospital sponsors the Nakornthon Hospital Marathon in order to promote well being and community fitness.

Why Thailand?
Medical tourism is rapidly growing in Thailand. In 2005, one of the Bangkok hospitals treated 150,000 patients from abroad. In 2006, medical tourism expected 36.4 billion baht.
First reason is low cost, though the treatment is world class, cost is very affordable compared to western countries. Personal attention is the main thing attracts patients across the globe. A patient told it would cost him minimum US $100,000 as against US$ 12,000! That is the catch.

Secondly, excellent food is available to US and UK patients according to their tastes.

Thirdly, English speaking medical staff! This is very comfortable for the US and UK patients. Otherwise also there are 22 language interpreters available. No need to worry about language.

The US consular information sheet gives the Thai health care system high marks for quality, particularly facilities in Bangkok, although the World Health Organization ranks the Thai healthcare system at number 47, which is below the USA's ranking at 37 and the United Kingdom's ranking at 18.
