The Thai Cabinet has approved a project to build an international medical hub in Phuket on Tuesday, October 11, 2022. The budget for this project is about 5 billion baht. This budget of about 5 billion baht will be distributed over five years, with 1.29 billion baht in 2023, 1.66 billion baht in 2024, 1.49 billion baht in 2025, 498 million baht in 2026, In the fifth year, 2027, a budget of 193 million baht will be allocated.

This Andaman International Medical Hub will house a research and development facility for medical services, serving as a hospital capable of providing reliable, high-quality medical services from basic to complex medical conditions.

The hospital has 300 beds and can handle more than 12,500 complex cases and more than 300,000 outpatients annually. It is expected that this will lead to a high degree of trust in Phuket medical care not only from local residents but also from tourists. The Thai government also said the Andaman International Medical Hub could generate about 62 billion baht annually through medical tourism.

In addition, the Andaman International Medical Hub also has a training center to train approximately 110 doctors, nurses, pharmacists, medical technicians and other medical professionals, and will play a role in developing highly skilled medical personnel.
