Yanhee Hospital Bangkok is a large multi-specialty hospital that does all kinds of medical, surgical and cosmetic treatments. It is JCI accredited – an international certification that is only given to medical centers that meet strict admission criteria. It also meets the ISO (International Standards Organization) standards, so you know that Yanhee Hospital is a great quality hospital.
Why is medical tourism becoming so popular?
Globally, many people do not have medical insurance, or are underinsured. If you live in a country that provides you with medical care, you may have to be on a long waiting list and this can take years particularly for treatments and procedures that are deemed non-emergency.
In any case, cosmetic surgery procedures are usually not covered by insurance unless there are serious medical repercussions. So you can fork-out a great sum of money to get the work done in your home country. If you don’t want to do that and if you don’t want to wait, then you should shop-around for cost-effective options.
A Medical Tourism Survey shows that increasingly people don’t mind traveling for high-quality medical care at affordable rates because of the cost savings and also the fact that they can visit a foreign country and have a holiday. Many so-called developing countries have a lower cost of living and so medical rates are inexpensive.
Why Yanhee Hospital, Bangkok?

Of course, Thailand has also developed its medical and hospitality infrastructure to take advantage of the number of medical tourists that come to the country lured by the cost differential, the warm climate, the food, the tourist attractions and the care that they receive.
