Within the first phase, the numbers of patients visiting the hospital had increased consistently heading to the Cardiology Centre, Emergency Department and Wellness Centre. The company is preparing to strengthen the hospital with Thailand’s specialist physicians to provide new alternative, expecting to attract more patients to the hospital for health advice instead of going to hospitals overseas.
Dr Tanatip Suppradit, vice chairman of the THG board, said the hospital plans to send physicians from Thailand to provide the treatment to Myanmar. The hospital aims to achieve the target of 300 out-patients per day and then to 600 out-patients this year.
“We see Myanmar as a potential country with a growing economy. However, the hospitals with international standards are not sufficient for the demands. At present, the Myanmar travels to Thailand for their health checkup and ongoing treatment. Therefore, we decided to enter the joint-venture to develop Ar Yu to serve Myanmar, tourists, and foreigners with skilful physicians and modern medical equipment as well as treatment and services of international standards as those of Thonburi Hospital in Thailand,” said Tanatip.
