The international clinic on Koh Chang is located on the main road at White Sand Beach. It is a branch of the Trat Hospital. The Clinic provides 24-hour emergency health services including, in critical circumstances, an air ambulance.

The international clinic has three beds for observation and runs a series of comprehensive outpatient services including orthopaedic surgery, OB/GYN and a dental clinic. For many international Koh Chang residents and long term stayers, it is the only medical facility they use.

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, quite a distance from the main tourist areas. The hospital has English speaking doctors and is clean and well run, although it does not have the international facilities that the private clinic can offer.

The Koh Chang Hospital does however have a X-ray and ultrasound facilities, a maternity unit, dental clinic and a hyperbaric chamber in the event of a diver getting the bends.

The Koh Chang Hospital is happy to treat foreigners at much cheaper fees than the International Clinic. For non-emergencies the hospital opens Monday to Friday 8.30-15.30.

 

Koh Chang Clinics and Pharmacies

For the treatment of minor injuries and illnesses there are small clinics in most of the resort town on the west of the island. These can dress a wound, deal with minor ailments and recommend medications.

The PP International Clinic on Klong Prao also offers general medical services, but is best known as a plastic surgery specialist.

In addition there are pharmacies for medicines and health supplies in all the resort towns. Many medicines, such as antibiotics, requiring a prescription in the west are available directly over the counter in Thailand.
