HEALTHCARE ON KOH CHANG

As one of the largest islands in Thailand, Kho Chang offers excellent healthcare options.

There are several government and private hospitals and clinics all over the island, but we highly recommend two outstanding facilities.

Bangkok International Koh Chang Clinic

The privately owned Bangkok Hospital (Bangkok International Koh Chang Clinic) is open 24 hours and conveniently located at the southern end of White Sand Beach.

The hospital is part of the Bangkok Hospital Group which provides first rate medical care and facilities in a number of locations across Thailand. It is equipped with state-of-the-art facilities and can deal with outpatients and medical emergencies. The hospital maintains an ICU ambulance on Koh Chang for emergency recovery or transfer to the Bangkok Hospital branch in Trat. Bangkok Hospital Helicopters and SOS jet air ambulance are on standby to airlift patients to Bangkok or Pattaya in  case of the most serious situations requiring emergency treatment.

KOH CHANG hospital

The Koh Chang Hospital is the Thai government facility on the island and is located on the east coast at Dan Mai, which can be reached easily from Siam Royal View. The doctors at the hospital speak English very well, the hospital is clean and well run, although it does not have the same international standard facilities that a private clinic can offer.

It does however have X-ray and ultrasound facilities, a maternity unit, a dental clinic and a hyperbaric chamber in the event of a diver suffering the bends.

The Koh Chang Hospital is happy to treat foreigners at very affordable rates.

The hospital operates a fleet of Ambulance Vans available 24h. For non-emergencies the hospital opens Monday to Friday 8.30am -3.30pm.
