Patong Hospital review by jackie

Many hospitals in Phuket Island Thailand. Several International hospitals I recommend. Living her 11 years I was was surprised to hear of the hospital. A Thai friend ask me to go with her for a doctor check-up. The hospital is not new. Patong is the main tourist area of Phuket. My friend had ok care as far as i could see.

But i woukd recommend avoiding this hospital if a tourist. I base that on two observations. One a Chinese family came in with very sick boy about 7? The waiting area emergency area was not busy. Many nurses sitting. The family came in with the father carrying the sick child. The child was lathargic. It took Thai people there and me to help the family to know where to go. The hospital staff showed no concern. Yes the family are Chinese but this is the main tourist area. They received no help from the staff navigating the language barrier!!

I showed the mother where she could lay her son down and was running high fever. What the outcome I dont know as my friend and I left.

The second reason suggest trying another hospital if possible is on Google map Review . Patong hospital gets a 2 overall rating.

There are several International hospitals equipped for tourist. My experience is with Phuket International and Mission. Both very good hospitals. Word of warning.

Tourist there is no free medical care for you. Insurance or cash.
