The San Paolo hospital in Hua Hin has opened an International Department. Spearheaded by managing Director and co-owner Dr. Eklarp Thongborisute (M.D.)and Foreign Patient coordinator Thoma Mohr, the San Paolo now attends to foreign residents and visitors of Hua Hin, Cha Am and Pranburi with their own program. The language and cultural differences are now met with a professional team that speaks English and Khun Thomas who also speaks German. Primarily, emergency cases are dealt with immediately and a proper translation is now secure.
Patients are informed precisely about their condition and informed about the regulations concerning private attendance or insurance covered therapy or surgery. Most international insurances will be acceptable if these companies recognize the San Paolo as a partner. The San Paolo will offer cosmetic surgery consisting of breast augmentations, breast reductions, and facial minor cosmetic corrections amongst others.
A special health check up service package is offered at fixed prices and definitely more affordable than some of the other institutions according to Dr .Eklarp Planned, later on, San Paolo will offer apartments for the elderly, retired who need medical attention. The facility is being refurbished and adapted to wheelchair entrances and a corridor to the hospital.
