BANGKOK, Jan. 21, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- MyMEDholiday.com, the most comprehensive online portal for medical tourism information, have created promotional tools that showcase Thailand as a leading medical tourism destination. Far from just being a tourist destination, Thailand offers state-of-the-art medical facilities and rigorously trained health care professionals, leading to the influx of circa 2.5 million medical tourists in 2012. And the number has increased by around 13% per year over the recent years.
Many of those visiting Thailand for medical treatment are attracted by the country's low medical costs, which can offer savings of between 50% and 75% compared with the price of treatment in the Western countries. Thailand also stands out for the quality of its health care facilities, offering 39 facilities - the highest number in Asia - that have been approved by the Joint-Commission International (JCI). Thailand's Bumrungrad International Hospital was also the first Asian hospital to receive JCI accreditation, while other accredited facilities in the country can be found in Bangkok, Chiang Mai, Hua Hin, Koh Samui, Pattaya/Chonburi, Phuket and many other locations.
"Thailand's popularity as a medical tourism destination is second to none. The highly qualified physicians, number of accredited health care facilities, affordable prices and absence of waiting lists are just a few of the reasons why Thailand is the #1 destination for medical tourists," says Jidapa Julakasilp, Managing Director of MyMEDholiday. "Our aim is to provide medical tourists with useful and in-depth information they need when considering Thailand for their medical treatments."
