Thai-listed property company Pruksa Holdings PLC is set to open its first hospital in the Saphan Kwai vicinity by 2020.


 
The 250 bed is targetting the middle-class segment and is JCI accredited. Pruksa is investing a total of Bt 4.9 billion into this venture and is expecting to make profit in the third year of operations.
 
The hospital and healthcare market is getting extremely competitive at the moment and despite whatever government and media reports, the number of medical tourists are actually declining and a new trend is starting to appear as more Thais are now exploring medical treatments for themselves ranging from countries to the US, India, China and even Malaysia.
 
Cost of medical procedures are very cheap in India, China and Malaysia compared to Thailand and despite fallacies or unproven rumours, the standards of healthcare in these countries are actually higher than Thailand.
 
 Mr  Jakkapong Watcharachaijunta, Owner of Thailand Medical News commented,”The problem with Thailand is that people are always complacent and never strive to improve their standards and services and they are always giving lots of fake projections. The reality is that many of these private hospital owners got too greedy and started to overcharge while their overall standards had gone down.
