TPP Healthcare International Co., Ltd., has partnered with the country’s leading specialists to develop MedPark hospital, investing more than 7 billion baht to create a new paradigm that transcend a conventional hospital. MedPark is determined to become a medical hub in Southeast Asia providing comprehensive care especially for high acuity and complex diseases.
Pongpat Patanavanich, Vice Chairman and Managing Director of TPP Healthcare International Co., Ltd., stated that MedPark has been developed by a group of highly experienced doctors in diversified medical fields. Not only has it set a goal of being the medical hub for super tertiary care that meets international standards, but the hospital has been designed with extraordinary attention to details, offering both local and foreign patients an unprecedented experience while broadly changing how healthcare is delivered.
MedPark Hospital is located in the heart of the new business district of Rama IV Road. It occupies a dedicated 25-storey building of 90,000 square meters. At full operation, the hospital can service outpatients in 300 examination rooms and provide beds for 550 inpatients.
The hospital is staffed by specialists in more than 30 fields of medicine, of whom nearly 70% hold American Board certification and/or are accredited by international programs in the US, Europe, Australia and Japan. So far, the company has received BOI incentives for four of its clinical centers, namely Cardiovascular, Cancer, Kidney and Laboratory.
In addition, MedPark has up to 130 intensive care beds, representing 30% of inpatient capacity and are all equipped with advanced technology to provide optimal care for critically ill patients. This is higher than all other hospitals in Thailand, which generally dedicate 10% of inpatient capacity to intensive care. In its first phase, MedPark will operate 205 inpatient beds and 65 intensive care beds.
Dr. Pongpat said that in addition to selecting highly skilled specialists, nurses and related personnel, the hospital has placed great importance on patient care standards based on the principle of Integrated Care through a multidisciplinary team that is capable of delivering the highest level of patient care ensuring patient’s well-being and safety. The hospital also employs the value-based care model to look after patients for continuing care and to respond to individual lifestyle pattern.
As it moves into the future, MedPark is determined to go beyond a stereotypical hospital and become a private-sector academic medical institution based on excellence in 3 key pillars: medical services, education and research. Under this visionary concept, the knowledge of medical staff will be continuously enhanced and new innovations introduced, leading to improved quality of care for patients especially those suffering from difficult and complex diseases.
MedPark is a new breed of hospital that is home to the specialists who took part in the hospital design to be truly responsive to every clinical need. With its concern for environmental impacts as well as patient health and safety, the hospital is constructed to comply with LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) requirements.
MedPark is also moving forward with its plans to create a collaborative network of private hospitals in Bangkok and the provinces to elevate the quality of healthcare service across all dimensions. This will not only benefit those residing in Thailand but also the country’s competitiveness as a medical tourism destination in Southeast Asia.
