Thailand is now the world’s No.1 destination for Medical Tourism, with over 2.4 million foreign medical tourists last year. Thailand is also home to some of the finest Hospitals in the world, which resemble 5 Star Luxury Hotels and Resorts. Many of these Hospitals and Clinics, have made, and continue to make substantial investments in equipment, technology, human resources, and are renowned for not only the highest medical standards, but also exceptional patient service.
