Bumrungrad International Hospital marks 2023 journey with outstanding achievements, transformative leadership

It remains committed to advancing healthcare standards and creating a lasting impact on the community. 

In the dynamic landscape of healthcare, Bumrungrad International Hospital stands as a beacon of excellence and innovation, renowned for its patient-centric care and cutting-edge treatments. Bumrungrad’s journey over the past year, marked by remarkable achievements, innovative solutions, and groundbreaking initiatives, underscores its commitment to setting new standards in healthcare – all through the strong leadership of its CEO Artirat Charukitpipat.

The hospital has achieved several significant milestones in 2023, including the establishment of the innovative Heart Institute under the leadership of Bumrungrad Heart Institute, the inauguration of the Eye Excellence Centre, and the expansion of the Digestive Disease Centre, all of which have significantly enhanced the hospital's ability to provide comprehensive and specialised care.

Bumrungrad’s commitment to innovation has also been demonstrated by the launch of a state-of-the-art boutique, multi-specialty hospital in Phuket. This venture is a strategic move to expand the hospital’s reach and impact, aiming to become the most trusted healthcare and wellness destination in the region by 2026.

Meanwhile, integral to Artirat’s legacy is her stewardship of Bumrugrad’s various arms, including the VitalLife Scientific Wellness Centre, the avant-garde preventative care initiative that has flourished through the integration of seasoned practitioners, state-of-the-art technologies, and AI-powered longevity systems. This blend of traditional healthcare with innovative technology has positioned Bumrungrad at the forefront of medical advancements.

With wellness also emerging post-COVID as a mainstay in the healthcare landscape, Artirat demonstrates her vision of comprehensive healthcare, extending beyond conventional treatment paradigms. Bumrungrad entered a partnership with MK Property as part of this strategy, resulting in the establishment of RAKxa – an integrated wellness centre redefining holistic health experience.

Another testament to Artirat's commitment to meeting diverse needs of the community is the establishment of the Pride Clinic, providing LGBTQ+ individuals with access to holistic and personalised care. The clinic serves as a safe haven for LGBTQ+ patients, embodying the hospital’s values of inclusion, agility, innovation, and caring.

Bumrungrad currently has a 97% customer retention rate, and its position as a quaternary care hospital that offers complex and specialised treatments is firmly cemented. Today, the hospital’s Average Daily Census is the highest recorded during the Y19-Y23 period, also reflecting the efficiency of operations and Artirat’s unwavering commitment to excellence in healthcare provision.

The hospital's success story is a testament to the collective efforts of its shareholders, business partners, management team, and healthcare professionals. This is not going to be possible without Artirat’s leadership style – one that fosters an environment of respect and collaboration and resonates throughout the organisation, creating a harmonious workplace where everyone feels valued.

As Bumrungrad continues to evolve and set new benchmarks, it reaffirms its status as the most trusted healthcare and wellness destination globally.

The hospital’s unwavering commitment to excellence has been commended by the recently held Healthcare Asia Awards 2024, where Bumrungrad International Hospital took home the coveted Hospital of the Year - Thailand category win. Artirat’s business acumen and transformative leadership has also been recognised by the prestigious awards programme, as she bags the CEO of the Year.
