August 17, 2015
Bumrungrad International Hospital’s Emergency Center is available 24 hours a day to treat patients in Thailand and throughout the region. You can be assured that our team of doctors and their supporting emergency staff will help you in the quickest and most effective way possible at the time when you need it most.

In case of an emergency

If you suspect someone needs immediate medical attention, you can contact Bumrungrad International Hospital’s Emergency Center by calling +66 2011 5222. Our facility is located on the Ground Floor of the Bumrungrad International Hospital, South Wing at 33 Sukhumvit 3 (Soi Nana Nua), Wattana, Bangkok, 10110 Thailand. We treat all types of people from new and returning patients to travelers, expatriates and residents. 

Response and transport teams

Patients may wonder about the emergency response time in a city as vast and busy as Bangkok. If you are in need of urgent medical care but are worried about delays due to traffic, weather, or construction that may prevent you from quickly reaching Bumrungrad International Hospital, you needn’t worry. We are partnered with Erawan and Narenthon EMS (Emergency Medical Services) Centers and they will evacuate you quickly and effectively and take you to the nearest hospital. Our network will confidently get you to an emergency center and, if necessary, later transfer you to Bumrungrad to receive further treatment.
Because time is of the essence in medical emergency situations, Bumrungrad also has several modes of transportation that can quickly relocate our emergency patients if medically necessary. We have a critical care transport fleet that include ambulances and helicopter services with fully licensed medical heliport. Additionally we have a domestic and international neonatal intensive care (NICU) transport module.
Bumrungrad International Hospital also has an aviation evacuation team that has been trained by the Defense College in emergency medical evacuation techniques. They are equipped with emergency and aviation medicine and are available for medical evacuation 24 hours per day and reach patients across Thailand and Asia.

ER services

Our team of doctors is staffed 24 hour per day seven days per week. Our emergency room has an onsite multi-system medical and surgical trauma care team, emergency physicians, registered nurses, and other specialty trained staff that treats patients seeking emergency medical care.
The emergency center includes a trauma center and several private rooms such as OB/GYN and eye examination facilities. Friends and family can remain comfortable in our observation area.
Our range of services at the ER includes:
General Internal Medicine
Intensive Care
Dr. Sukitti Panpunnung leads the team at Bumrungrad International Hospital’s Emergency Center and specializes in cardiology. He is supported by nurses specializing in advanced cardiac life support (ACLS) and has a 24 hour emergency cardiac catheterization at the Heart Center.
For those people who aren’t aware, the staff at Bumrungrad’s Emergency Center takes care of more than just patients with life threatening conditions. During the evening hours when clinics are closed, our staff is also available to treat patients who are suffering with less severe but none-the-less troublesome health complications and ailments.
In the event that your child is experiencing a persistent head cold or if you are suffering from inconvenient stomach cramps that need treatment in the late evening or early morning hours, you are welcome to come to the ER instead of waiting until normal clinical hours to receive care.
