Thailand Health Care
part of global growth tourism!!

By Bill Fogarty
Did you know that more than 50, yest fifty, countries around the world count on some form of health tourism to stimulate incoming traffic? You may well ask why. Well contributing factors include the high cost of health care at home, long wait times for certain procedures, better facilities and health care givers in certain countries are all among the reasons.

Are they right in Chaing Mai deaths? More

Thailand Health Care Information
Thailand Health Care  part of global growth tourism | What about the cost?
Where do these tourists seeking health care come from? | Health care standards and risk.
Bangkok is a city of SPAS.
A new destination was recently featured in The Bangkok Post More

Where do these tourists seeking health care come from?
Europe, the USA, the Middle East, Japan, you get the picture. They come from relatively wealthy countries all around the world. And, even though the world is experiencing, er, financial difficulties, this is one industry that is programmed for increase. One of the main reasons is convenience and speed. Try joining a wait for desperately needed care in a country where socialized medicine is offered. It's a long line baby.

What about the cost?
Oh yes, there is the cost. Thailand for example is often a quarter of the price of similar procedures in the USA. That alone should make for a compelling reason. However there are other considerations. Add the cost to the fact that one can just about get the procedure done "on arrival" and recover in some of Thailand's beach resorts and you have a pretty difficult situation to beat.


Thai Hospitals are well known for treatment, care, facilities and International recognition.
Here Bangkok's Bumrungrad.

Thailand health care standards and risk.
Lets look at the standard of care. Does Thailand match up to the rest of the world?
T here is a global standard in health care as well as various standards of international
accreditation originating in various countries. Source Wikipedia for that information please.
High marks are usually given Thai hospitals from embassies of many countries. However the World Health Organization places the country at a lowly 47. That's lower than many of the countries medical tourists come from. Are there risks involved? Yes but this is true for any country. First there are many countries that have different diseases. Second there may not be a great avenue (if any) to register complaints. There are more of course; but you have your own worries and cares. Better you research your own.

Health tourism in Thailand: An upward trend.
In Thailand medical tourism is one of the few bright spots on the tourism scene.
Plus, hotels are lowering their rates and increasing their services in the great rush for business
it As a result, The Kingdom becomes even better value. Thailand offers everything in health care. This can range from cardiac procedures to hip replacement to sex change.
You want it or need it; you got it. Bangkok is the place to go with most hospitals that cater
to foreigners very good.

Medical Tourism in Thailand
Based on a report by the
Tourism Authority of Thailand.
Introduction
Health travel, once a luxury of only the rich, can now be enjoyed by virtually all. In the days of yesteryear, hardly anyone even pondered the possibilities of going abroad to a distant foreign land to have treatment.  But now, with the advent of the world becoming a global village, millions are crossing international datelines in hope of achieving a 'better new life'. 


Samiivej Hospital, near Bangkok's Thong Lo
is also most popular

Thailand has sprinted to the forefront in the medical tourism industry. Unlike most Western countries, the cost of private medical treatment is cost effective. The standards in Thailand are high with many of the health workers graduates of he west. Thailand can offer the patient world-renowned treatment plus the opportunity to enjoy the holiday of a lifetime.

Thailand Spas: Great for healing or simply pampering

The famous Thailand Spa treatment.
Adapted from a press release from the Tourism Authority of Thailand

Origin of the word "SPA"
The word SPA, most likely originates from a town bearing the same name and originating in Europe. Belgium to be exact. However in reality a SPA is a place where you can heal mind, body and spirit. There are a variety of techniques available in Thailand; these include, but are not limited to, massage, scrubs, yoga, reflexology, nutrition and body raps.

Thailand: Asia's Spa Capital
Thailand prides itself in countless spas offering the highest world-class services at extremely reasonable rates. Much of the recent success of this therapy is due to the tremendous support given by the Thai Spa Operators Association. Not only have they assisted in the training of therapists to international standards, but they have also trained them in keeping methods traditionally and distinctively in tune with Thailand. I is this kind of service along with the "i Thai Smile" that are the key factors for so many visitors to visit a SPA
in Thailand again and again. Furthermore, most clients walk away from the SPA with their head held high and a feeling of rejuvenation Thai SPAS are to be found not only quantity, but also quality. SPAS are ubitiquos at all the major tourist destinations in Thailand. These include, but again are not limited to Bangkok, Phuket, Pattaya, Ko Samui, Chiang Mai and Hua Hin.

Services and Hospitality
Thailand is a friendly country. In fact it is a must visit destination for all those who enjoy nothing more than rejuvenating with a special SPA experience.
Like the world famous Thai Massage treatment Thailand is famed for its world-class natural healing techniques. Thailand, home of Theravada Buddhism, is the ideal location to do a bit of spiritual soul-searching and reap the benefits of Vipassana meditation.
This technique has exploded in popularity in Western countries. Then, there is the sumptuous cuisine to wine and dine on, with cooking classes available too. Should you want to experience a real Thai way of life there are numerous home-stays, including those in the unique hill tribe villages of the north.
