World Medical Centre


Thailand’s Newest First-Class Hospital

The World Medical Center is Bangkok’s newest first-class hospital, built from the ground up with medical travellers in mind.

This 330 bed hospital has obtained the prestigious Joint Commission International (JCI) accreditation and is the first healthcare provider in the Asia Pacific region to successfully attain the German and Scandinavian DNV GL hospital accreditation.

World Medical Centre’s advanced orthopaedics department boasts some of Thailand most awarded surgeons for total knee replacement, total hip replacement, shoulder reconstruction and spine surgery. Renowned orthopaedic specialists include Dr. Somsak Kuptniratsaikul and Dr. Pongsak Yuktanandana.

Orthopaedic Patient Facilities

All Australian and New Zealand patients can enjoy the highest level of private hospital healthcare available in Bangkok.
Facilities include:

SkyGen Patient Privileges

SkyGen patients receive many benefits whilst staying at World Medical Centre. A hospital representative will greet you upon arrival at Bangkok Airport, and you will have a friendly Patient Coordinator assigned by your side every step of the way. You will never feel far away from home while recovering in your private ward room, with many other Australian and New Zealand patients also recovering from surgery in the same ward. These patients are from our sister company, CosMediTour.

As well as organising and booking every part of your journey, SkyGen has negotiated fully inclusive orthopaedic surgery packages for all patients. This includes every single anticipated expense for a standard patient case. Other hospitals or agencies will misleadingly advertise very low prices for hip and knee replacement in Thailand, but these cost quickly grow as all the ‘standard extras’ are added. Our partnership with World Medical Centre ensures a great value joint replacement package that’s 50% less than what you would pay at home, with no surprises. Whilst overseas surgery may seem daunting, you can rest assured our medical travel group has assisted hundreds of patients before you to have an excellent experience and surgical outcome.

Bringing Friends and Family

The World Medical Centre is an ideal hospital if you are looking to bring family and friends for support. The private ward rooms are spacious and comfortable (see photos above) to accommodate for your traveling party. You’ll notice there are extra recliners and roll-away beds, and even a second flat-screen TV in case you have different tastes in movies. Each level of the hospital has a ‘sky-garden’, where you can take a daily stroll amongst nature in fresh air, without having to leave the hospital precinct.

There is also a large shopping centre close-by, Central Chaengwatthana, only 300m walk from the hospital. Here you’ll find department stores selling clothes, cosmetics and more, as well as many coffee shops and restaurants. There is also a supermarket on the ground floor for any comforts you might need to see you through your recovery!
