Below are the other primary advantages of selecting Bangkok Chain Hospital Group:

CostsAccessible Affordable Healthcare

For example, a maternity package for natural birth in Kasemrad Hospital is 29,000 baht or around 800 US dollars. In Kasemrad International Hospital the price starts at 42,000 baht or around 1,160 US dollars. BCH aims to be flexible without compromising on giving the best healthcare.

The first hospital, Kasemrad Hospital Bangkae, was established in 1984. It continued to grow, expanding to 15 hospitals and 1 polyclinic with 582 exam rooms and 2,254 licensed beds.  

Out of all the hospitals in Thailand reviewed, I’ve noticed that Bangkok Chain Hospital Group is the only company that has highlighted sustainability goals. I want to commend how they cater to the entire social class ladder not mainly focusing on a specific level.  BCH is committed to practicing excellent and equal care to patients and business partners and resource management.

It is nice to consider a hospital that treats everyone fairly from the patients, partners, and all the staff members!
