Since being founded in the Thai capital back in 1979, the Samitivej hospital group has gone from strength to strength and now has nine hospital and outreach clinics spread across Thailand and Myanmar. Some of the group’s most prestigious facilities are Samitivej Sukhumvit, Samitivej Srinakarin, Samitivej Sriracha, Samitivej Thonburi and now Samitivej Chonburi. This newest branch is committed to providing the same level of service and treatment that the Samitivej brand has become synonymous with over the past decades.
Fully accredited by the American Joint Commission International (JCI), the Samitivej Hospital brand is widely regarded as one of the best hospital groups in South-East Asia.
