To be fair, I doubt whether anybody reading this thread will know to any degree of certainty, whether the provision of the Bangkok Hospital has led to improvements to the Hua Hin Hospital, and/or to what extent - the main issue is that the HH Hospital has had a major investment in its facilities for which we can all be grateful.

YES it has, by incentivizing the Thai Hospitals, esp HH Hospital to improve their care to ex-pats and tourists.
I'd be very surprised any of the investment was because there are expats or tourists here. It is all done for the Thai population, and I'm very grateful that we can take advantage of the services.

I've been to public hospitals in expat areas with a much higher concentration of expats and tourists, and it was like the pre-improved Hua Hin Hospital.

I beleive that you are all missing the point. The Hua Hin Hospital is there to provide for the areas prime family, regardless of whether or not they are in full time residence.

I'm not missing any point. I gratefully accept that I am able to use the public facility. As far as Hua Hin Hospital is concerned, I very much doubt whether the presence of expats or tourists has influenced anything. They provide the best service they can for the Thai public, and they allow me to use their facility.

[Edit] It is the thought that Bangkok Hospital is influencing the wonderful improvements that I find incredulous.

Oh well, you obviously know more about it than me. The fact remains that for many years the Hua Hin Hospital has provided a much higher level of facilities than any other provincial government hospital. The cardiac unit was provided for one reason only, as an example.

Yes, but was it provided because Hua Hin had expats, tourists or because of Bangkok Hospital as is being suggested?

We probably all know the real reason.

In judging hospitals, much attention is given to facilities and equipment when the real factors that are important are the abilities and attitude of the staff. I broke my ankle about a year ago. I went to the HHH and received excellent care. Both the lady ER Dr and the young male Orthopedic Surgeon spoke excellent English, explained everything at length and were speedy and efficient. The bill was ridiculously low.
