Registered on October 30, 1969 as Bangkok Dusit Medical Services Company Limited, BDMS has grown from a single hospital into the largest network of hospitals and health clinics in Thailand.
Along the way, we are proud to have been health care pioneers in Thailand by opening the country’s first private heart hospital (Bangkok Heart Hospital) and first private cancer hospital (Wattanosoth Hospital). We were also the first private hospital group in Thailand to open a children’s hospital (Samitivej Children’s Hospital), dedicated solely to the care of pediatric patients.
2. Mission / Vision
BDMS’s vision is to be the premier tertiary health care provider in Thailand, dedicated to providing health care that is patient-focused and of international quality, complemented by up-to-date medical technology. We are committed to assembling a health care team that is ethical and efficient, capable of offering safe and successful treatment to patients of all ages.
At BDMS, we hope to instill confidence and trust in our patients, so when visiting any of our hospitals, patients can be assured of receiving only the safest, most up-to-date medical care. Before a new hospital joins our network, we make sure it is developed with strong infrastructure, personnel and support systems in order to maintain our exceptional operating levels and standards of care. We have a clear, focused vision for the future, and we strive to constantly seek out new opportunities for growth and expansion.
3. Awards & Accreditation
Across our 45-year history, BDMS has won numerous national and international awards and accreditations. Bangkok Hospital is particularly acclaimed, having been awarded eight Gold Seals of Approval from JCI, more than any other hospital in the Asia Pacific region. Considered the highest standard in global health care, the seals are awarded by the Joint Commission International, a United States non-profit organization that evaluates operational practices and facilities, ensuring that exacting international standards are met.

Bangkok Hospital also collaborates with leading international teaching hospitals.
Samitivej Hospital, BNH Hospital, the Phyathai Hospital Group and the Paolo Hospital Group are also certified by Joint Commission International Accreditation (JCI) and Hospital Accreditation (HA) of Thailand.
