Sriphat is the private wing of the 2,300 bed Maharaj Nakorn Hospital - also known as Suan Dok (Suan Dork) Hospital, a large tertiary government teaching hospital affiliated with Chiang Mai University (CMU). All medical specialties are represented and the hospital is fully equipped to a high standard, including an excellent trauma centre. At Sriphat (also known the “Special Medical Services Center”) it is possible to see many of the most senior physicians affiliated with the CMU Medical School in a private capacity. No other hospital in the area offers the same range of expertise, and it is quite affordable. All of the doctors speak English to a decent standard or better and most of the administrative and nursing staff do also, but to varying degrees. There is also an efficient queuing system in place whereby a new patient can see a medical specialist within very short time scales and subsequent visits rarely involve more than a two hour wait. In this as in many government hospitals, the quality of care is much higher than the hospital’s general appearance and lack of amenities might suggest. Finally, this hospital has extensive 24 hour Accident and Emergency facilities, including an air ambulance.




Ramkamheng (“Ram”) Hospital is a private for-profit institution which is slightly more convenient in terms of language and waiting time, but also more expensive and offering a more limited range of medical specialties. In some cases physicians at CMU also have hours at RAM.




The recently opened Bangkok Hospital is a part of the well-known hospital chain and is located on the Lamphun/Chiang Mai highway, in Chiang Mai. Members have posted various reports of their experiences there, all of which have been very positive.




Rajavej Hospital, Hospital is a private 150 bed for profit hospital that specializes in Orthopedic and Gastrointestinal issues, it is priced between Sriphat and RAM and is staffed and equipped to cover most medical conditions. Rajavej Hospital, has a useful customer liaison function that provides translation and communication between Thai and English and Japanese, however, most doctors there speak English to a good standard.


Another well-known private hospital in the Chiang Mai area catering to the expatriate community is McCormick Hospital. Although private, it is non-profit, with rates that are similar to Rajavej Hospital,.
