Founded in 1980, Bumrungrad International Hospital has been a global pioneer in providing world-class holistic healthcare with innovation and international patient support for over four decades. Located in the heart of Bangkok, Thailand, a cosmopolitan megacity which translates to “The City of Angels,” the city is renowned for its culture of exceptional hospitality and delicious cuisine, as well as being a medical & wellness destination. Bumrungrad is an internationally accredited, quaternary care hospital, listed on the Stock Exchange of Thailand since 1989. One of the largest private hospitals in Southeast Asia, Bumrungrad has 580 beds, over 80 centres of excellence, speciality centres, and sub-speciality centres, 1,300 medical specialists (over 200 have been US board certified), and 900 nurses.
Bumrungrad International Hospital was the first hospital in Asia to be accredited by the US-based Joint Commission International (JCI), achieving accreditation five consecutive times since 2002. In 2017, Bumrungrad also became the first hospital in Asia to be DNV GL MIR Certified for Infection Risk and became the first non-US hospital to earn Global Healthcare Accreditation with Excellence designation from GHA, which signifies the highest international quality and safety standards for overseas patients travelling to the hospital for treatment and care. Through its consistent clinical standards and many international accreditations, Bumrungrad has demonstrated some of the world’s highest clinical success rates and lowest infection rates. The Bumrungrad laboratory holds a certification from the College of American Pathologists (CAP), also a first for Asia, certifying that its standards of disease pathology are at the same level as leading providers in the USA. It is also the only hospital in Thailand with an internationally-certified lab (ISO 15189) and the first hospital in the world to achieve Certification of Conformance with GHA COVID-19 Guidelines for Medical Travel Programs. Recently, Bumrungrad was ranked as the best hospital in Thailand for the second year in a row by Newsweek (World’s Best Hospitals 2022 – Thailand). Bumrungrad was also the only Thai hospital on their World’s Best Hospitals 2022 list — a list of only 150 hospitals worldwide.
Bumrungrad International Hospital cares for over 1.1 million patients from more than 190 countries annually. The hospital has a medical coordination office staffed by doctors and nurses who serve the special needs of multinational patients.
