By Betsy Burlingame

Last updated on Sep 08, 2023

Summary: The quality of medical care in Thailand is generally considered to be good, with many hospitals offering modern facilities and highly trained medical staff. However, the quality of care may not be as high as in the United States. Emergency services in Thailand are generally reliable and efficient, with ambulances available in most cities. To call for an ambulance, you can dial 1669 or contact your local hospital.

How are healthcare services Thailand?

When we asked expats and global nomads about the quality of medical care in Thailand, they replied:

"Healthcare services in Thailand are generally of a high quality and are widely available. The public healthcare system is comprehensive and covers a wide range of services, including primary care, specialist care, and hospital care. The quality of public healthcare is generally good, with modern facilities and well-trained staff. Foreign residents in Thailand have access to the public healthcare system, although they may need to pay a fee for some services. Expats in Thailand often use the public healthcare system, as it is generally more affordable than private healthcare. However, some expats may opt for private healthcare, as it can provide more personalized care and shorter waiting times," commented one expat who moved to Thailand.
