Regular, independent reviews to assure patient safety

HA Hospital Accreditation

Bumrungrad International is the first from more than 800 hospitals in Thailand to receive the Hospital Accreditation-HA, and was recently the only hospital to receive the A-HA Advance Hospital Accreditation from Her Royal Highness Princess Soamsawali Phravararajatinuddamatu at the 17th annual HA National Forum, presented by the Healthcare Accreditation Institute (Public Organization) this 2016.  This has been made possible by the commitment to meet all the medical needs of our patients, and the focus on high standards of quality and safety. 
The Healthcare Accreditation Institute is an organization which voluntarily examines hospitals from outside the industry, in order to inspect if each hospital operates and holds up to the international standards of quality, following standards set forth by the United States and Canada.
