For more than 20 years, the Bumrungrad Hospital Foundation and Bumrungrad International Hospital have continuously run social projects. To run these projects, the hospital brings together its medical expertise and healthcare knowledge. The two main projects by Bumrungrad International Hospital are “Rak Jai Thai,”
which provide heart surgeries for underprivileged children with congenital heart defects at no cost, and the Bumrungrad Mobile Clinic, a pop-up clinic which travels to lesser privileged communities in the Greater Bangkok area and provides medical care for people in those communities.
In 2022, Bumrungrad International Hospital was again acknowledged for being a leading organization that makes important contributions to the community. Recently this year, the American Chamber of Commerce in Thailand (AMCHAM)
held the AMCHAM CSR Excellence Awards and awarded Bumrungrad International Hospital the AMCHAM CSR Excellence Recognition Award, Platinum Level
— Platinum Level is for organizations that have continuously continued with a CSR project for more than 10 years.
Dr. Preecha Laohakunakorn
, Pediatric Cardiologist and Cardiologist of Rak Jai Thai, and Dr. Nattaphon Chokemaitree, physician of the Bumrungrad Mobile Clinic, received the award on Bumrungrad’s behalf. The award was presented by Robert F. Godec, U.S. Ambassador to Thailand. The awards ceremony was held on November 22, 2022 at the Conrad Bangkok.
