Thai-Myanmar medical collaboration inked

World Medical Centre, a branch of Bangkok Chain Hospital (BCH), has signed a memorandum of understanding with Family Mandalar in Myanmar to undertake the former’s first operation outside Thailand.

WMC aims to become a medical centre in Asean over the next three to five years.

Dr Chalerm Harnpanich, chief executive officer of BCH, said that under the initial partnership, it would send a team of specialists to provide medical examinations and treatments at Mandalar hospitals in Mandalay.

For complicated diseases or critical cases, WMC will bring Myanmar patients to its own facilities in Thailand by air ambulance. These may include cases of heart disease, brain ailments and cancer.

WMC also facilitates remote meetings with Family Mandalar hospitals as a consultation service to enhance medical efficiency and accuracy.

WMC is a new hospital group under BCH providing premium tertiary care. Chalerm said that in the future, it would work towards creating a medical-education centre in Myanmar.

WMC director Dr Surapong Lookhanumanjao said that in addition to Myanmar, the centre was in talks with hospitals in Laos and Cambodia for possible collaboration, as it expands its footprint in Asean.
