Ram Hospital Has Emerged As The Hospital of Choice for Medical Tourists in Chiang Mai

 

As the medical tourism industry continues to expand, Thailand continues to be one of the best destinations for medical tourists. Here it is quite easy to find yourself in one of the city’s most excellent medical facilities. Hospitals in Chiang Mai are no strangers to foreign patients and they offer world-class healthcare to numerous medical tourists especially from Australia and New Zealand. Equipped with state-of-the-art operating rooms and having highly trained doctors and nurses, Chiang Mai hospitals are ideal for medical tourists. Ram Hospital is one of the best of these hospitals, and we are going to look at what this facility offers its patients.

Ram Hospital Review

Let’s start with a brief history of the hospital itself. The Ram Hospital - now the most well-reputed hospital in Chiang Mai - opened its doors in Chiang Mai back in 93’. Thus, this medical facility has more than two decades of experience serving both local and foreign patients.

While medical tourism has existed in varying forms and capacities since the 1980s, Thailand has become a medical tourism hub in the last decade or so. It is still vying to attract the greatest number of medical tourists to Asia, competing with the likes of Singapore. The hospital even managed to get an JCI accreditation early on.

The credibility of this hospital is also established by the fact that it is part of the prestigious Ramkhamhaeng Group. So it doesn’t come as a surprise to many that this clinic is a state-of-art medical facility that can be compared to hospitals of countries like Australia and New Zealand. Also, many doctors and specialists who work here have been educated overseas and are up-to-date with modern diagnostics and surgical procedures..

Let us now talk about the facility itself. The hospital is located in Chiang Mai city on 8 Boonreugrit Road. Since you are a medical ‘tourist’, you will be happy to know that this hospital is close to (among other locations) the Kad Suan Kaew Shopping Center. Things like this certainly make the trip more worth your time and money. After all, how often do you get to combine medical care and vacationing?

The Ram Hospital is a private hospital with 12 floors that house the 350 patient rooms. And while the hospital offers a wide range of medical services and treatments, it is best known among overseas patients for cosmetic procedures like tummy tucks and facelifts. Like other tourist destinations in Thailand, Chiang Mai’s plastic surgery services are much in demand.

Ram Hospital Procedures

As mentioned earlier, Ram Hospital offers all major medical procedures along with plastic surgery for cosmetic purposes. The highly qualified and experienced team of doctors bring a diverse range of expertise to the table. This means you can come to this hospital for anything from a routine check-up to knee replacement surgery (arthroplasty). In any case, you will receive the best medical care without a huge medical bill.

Talking about the costs of the procedures, remember that this is a private hospital. So it will be costlier than any Thai government hospital. However, the beautiful thing is that medical examinations and procedures at the this hospital will still be way cheaper than anything that you will pay back home. Let’s have a look at the prices in the next section.

Ram Hospital Cost Overview

The following are the estimated prices of major procedures that you can get at the Ram Hospital in comparison to what you can expect to pay in your country.

Cost of Facelift in Australia: AUD $24200

Cost of Facelift in New Zealand: NZD $26000

Cost of Facelift at Chiang Mai Ram Hospital: AUD $6200 and NZD $6700

Cost of Hip Replacement in Australia: AUD $21000

Cost of Hip Replacement in New Zealand: NZD $23000

Cost of Hip Replacement Chiang Mai Ram Hospital: AUD $13500 and NZD $14500

Cost of Tummy Tuck in Australia: AUD $13600

Cost of Tummy Tuck in New Zealand: NZD $14700

Cost of Tummy Tuck Chiang Mai Ram Hospital: AUD $4800 and NZD $5200

Cost of Knee Replacement in Australia: AUD $21000

Cost of Knee Replacement in New Zealand: NZD $23000

Cost of Knee Replacement Chiang Mai Ram Hospital: AUD $13500 and NZD $14500

As you can see, you are saving thousands of dollars and cutting back anywhere from 50% to 80% on surgical and cosmetic procedures. Even if you factor in additional expenses (travel, accommodation, shopping, prescriptions etc.) you will still be saving considerable cash and get international standard medical care. Rest assured that the lower costs don’t mean a lower standard of health care.

This is all the more beneficial for patients seeking cosmetic procedures, because they are not generally covered by insurance. The affordable plastic surgery costs ensure that you can pay for the procedure out of pocket without blowing through your savings!

Getting Treated at Ram Hospital

As stated above, there are 350 fully equipped rooms for patients at this hospital. How long you will stay at the hospital depends on the procedure you’re going for. However, an added benefit is that you will not be subjected to extensive wait times which are common at hospitals in Australia and New Zealand. For the most part, your physical examination will be done on the same day as your surgery, which saves a lot of time for your vacation part of the trip. This is again a major benefit considering that you have taken time off work, you can combine your medical procedure with a much-needed break from work.

You can also read reviews on the internet and learn about the experience of patients who have been treated at the Ram Hospital. This will give you a first-hand knowledge of what your experience can be like. Depending on your procedure, you can also look for before and after pictures online. This will give you a better understanding of what to expect from the procedure.

This preliminary research goes a long way in making you comfortable for a medical procedure in a foreign country. So that’s about it. Hopefully this review of the Ram Hospital proved helpful.
