Bumrungrad achieves GHA's COVID-19 Certification


Artirat Charukitpipat, Bumrungrad’s Chief Executive Officer, stated, "From the very start of the spread of the coronavirus, Bumrungrad moved quickly to implement internal, as well as national and international protocols and guidelines designed to mitigate the risk of COVID-19 infection for patients and staff. This certification is an important step for us to help increase patient trust in our medical travel services."

The certification for hospitals is a three-year certification with annual reviews, which signals to medical travellers, referrers, and other payers that the organisation has implemented the recommendations in the guidelines as a proactive risk mitigation strategy to ensure patient safety and wellbeing.

The Global Healthcare Accreditation (GHA) for Medical Travel Services is an international accreditation agency.  Karen Timmons of GHA says, "The certification provides a seal to patients, buyers and others demonstrating that a medical travel programme's operational protocols, practices and procedures have undergone an external review and reflect international best practices designed to keep traveling patients safe. One of the key objectives is to enhance transparency and encourage communications with patients, which is even more important during this challenging time, and which ultimately helps to increase patient trust in the organisation. We congratulate Bumrungrad International Hospital.” 

In business since 2009, GHA has 9 global hospitals and clinics listed on its website as accredited, with Bumrungrad being the most high profile one.
