Addressing medical needs, assessing quality and affordability are all part of the process. Fortunately, Medical Departures specializes in locating and partnering with the best, most hygienic, modern, and affordable hospitals in Thailand – and then connecting our clients to them.

We have chosen these elite institutions based on several criteria: firstly, for their standards of care as evidenced by their international accreditations and awards; secondly, for their high ratings awarded by real-life Medical Departures clients from the past; and third, for their ongoing dedication to keeping pace with every development in the rapidly-modernizing medical world.

These five Thai hospitals have proven themselves leaders in high-quality, low-cost health care, both domestically and abroad, over the span of years and even decades.


We know a major reason for medical tourists to visit Thailand is the potential to save massive sums of money while retaining the same or even greater quality of care that they would in their hometown.

To take just a handful of examples, as compared to their hometown clinic, Westerners visiting Thailand will save 79% on knee replacements, 57% on male breast reduction, 34% on hair transplants, 73% on butt lifts, and 77% on butt lifts!


Whether medical or cosmetic, the savings on healthcare in these world-class Thai facilities amounts to thousands and even tens of thousands of dollars, pounds, or euros!
