The Hua Hin Hospital organized a Buddhist ceremony of laying foundation stones and erecting main posts for the construction of Hua Hin Hospital 3 an sanctuary of First Aid, Outpatient treatment and alternative medicine. The Hospital will be located at the entrance of the Khao Santi Buddhist monastery and will cover over 16 Rai ( 25,000 m²) With the budget of around 2 Billion Baht for the construction, this new public hospital will be available in July this year.
The construction site was once owned by Mrs. Prachuab Rakpaiboonsombat who then donated it to the Foundation of Somdet Phra Yupharat Hospital. Subsequently, the Foundation gave the land to Hua Hin Hospital for construction of its new affiliate. The Director of Hua Hin Hospital said that the Hua Hin Hospital 3 would well facilitate over 10,000 local people from Takiab, Nong Kae, Ban Mai-Hua Na and Khao Tao communities.
Those who have minor accidents or illnesses do not have to go to the Hua Hin Hospital in the center of the city anymore as its new branch can give medical service daily. However, those suffering from severe illnesses can be immediately transferred to the headquarters. Despite a big budget to construct the hospital, the Hua Hin Hospital called for support and donation from both local people and foreign tourists because the new hospital still lacks a lot of medical equipment. So, those who would like to give financial support can contact the Hua Hin Hospital’s headquarters directly.
