Thailand’s medical care

Millions of people head to Bangkok, Phuket, Koh Samui and to many other locations in this wonderful country each year in search of superior healthcare. Thailand is known as having some of the best medical care in Asia and around the globe, and it is certainly among the best value. 

Over the years Thailand has become a stand-out destination for those looking for world-class medical care, and this only looks to continue in the future. From the quality of care to the exquisite facilities, it is easy to see why so many people are choosing Thailand for medical reasons today.

The facilities on offer

One of the key reasons why medical tourism in Thailand is on the rise is the high number of quality facilities available for people to visit. ImagineHealth Thailand facilitates access to every type of facility that you would ever need, from world-class hospitals to clinics and luxury resorts for your recovery. 

The Seabreeze Cancer Retreat on Koh Samui, for example, offers an unparalleled and perfectly crafted program for recovery from your cancer treatments. It has to be one of the best programs anywhere around the globe for this kind of recovery, and can hasten the improvement of both the mind and the body. 

The range of expertise in different fields

Many of our partner provider’s programs have highly trained and experienced medical staff who specialise in a range of different fields. These include specific cancers, anti-aging treatments and general health and wellbeing. Some medical tourists choose Thailand because of their superior elective surgeries. Others may come looking for expert diagnosticians to see to their case.

Thailand is home to so many top of the line hospitals for you to choose from, each offering specialisations and internationally accredited staff and treatments. For those who don’t know what it is that ails them, you can start with a state-of-the-art full body check-up.  This will evaluate your health and ideally start you on the path to perfect health and a long, full life. 

The cutting edge technology and advanced treatments

Thailand’s top facilities offer impressive treatments aimed at everything from neurological rehabilitation to anti-aging and proper Covid-recovery. Many of these healthcare establishments will offer targeted care. For example, a precision program for cancer patients to give you as detailed a diagnosis and as much information as possible. 

Over the last two decades since Thailand moved to universal health coverage, the quality and abundance of new technologies has only increased. Many of the staff here train internationally in the most advanced methods of treatment in order to attract more medical tourists. You can benefit from all that simply by making the trip to the country yourself.

Thailand is known for its next generation cancer care, which combines established successful treatments, natural approaches and modern and precise technology. These are just a few examples of the kind of targeted, precision medicine that you can find at the top clinics and hospitals in Thailand right now.

The incredible low costs

One of the biggest factors for many medical tourists in selecting Thailand is the fantastic value and low cost of treatment. Not only will you spend less travelling to this country and receiving treatment, you are also likely to receive better care than you would in many other places. 

A single day in a US hospital can cost you thousands of dollars, or more than 35,000 Baht. Meanwhile, though the cost will vary from hospital to hospital, in Thailand you could spend less than $60US, or around 2000 Baht. With price differences like these, you can see why so many people would still rather fly to Thailand and pay all the extras like accommodation and food.

The speed and quality of care

Many Western countries that may also have excellent health care often tend to have long waiting lists for operations, procedures and even just appointments. In Thailand there are enough clinics, hospitals and well-trained staff that you can make an appointment and be seen much more quickly.

By paying for your healthcare here, even though it isn’t as much as you might spend elsewhere, you are getting the highest quality of care, as quickly as possible.

The stunning locations

Thailand is the perfect place to go, get well, and recover in both a high-quality hospital and a tropical paradise. If, for example, you are looking to wind back the clock and try some of the cutting edge anti-aging treatments available, you can do so on the stunning island of Phuket. 

The more information and skill that your medical professionals have, the better, but also the location can play a key role. Neuro-restoration, for instance, is a specially designed and targeted program for those suffering from damage to the brain or spine. They utilise the most advanced thinking and practices in the field to work diligently on such an essential area of the body.

The fact that programs focused on neuro-restoration take place in Thailand and in a holiday-like setting can have just as big of an impact. The climate, sunshine, sea and the highly trained staff who work out in Thailand can all come together to provide a superior healing experience.

So, why choose Thailand for medical purposes?

Thailand itself welcomes any individual arriving here to seek medical treatment, with special visas available for rest and recovery. You can fly in and out and stay up to 90 days with a hospital appointment and the relevant finances or insurance as and when you need to.  

For all these reasons and so many others, Thailand is truly one of the world’s foremost destinations for any and all medical purposes. With cutting-edge treatments, impressive low costs and charming and highly skilled staff, it is no wonder that medical tourism in Thailand is so popular today.
