One of the frequent questions asked by many travelers coming to Phuket is “What happens should I feel sick or be involved in an accident in Phuket? Are the hospitals up to international standards?” Truth be told, many expatriates find the hospitals in Phuket to be of much higher standards than in the West.
There are two types of hospitals in Thailand: public and private.

The private ones are a bit pricier, but offer more convenience, shorter waiting time and usually include staff that can speak your language.
