In general, these private hospitals in Pattaya are the ones that tourists prefer as they are very similar to the hospitals in the west. Another big hospital, Banglamung, which is located in Naklua, can be used for minor ailments. Being a government hospital, it is cheaper than the private hospitals but be prepared to face a language barrier.
Don’t be surprised to find that you have to pay higher prices compared to Thais at these Pattaya hospitals. Some hospitals follow a three-tier system of pricing where walk-in tourists pay the most, foreign long stay visitors pay slightly lower and the local Thai people get the lowest rates.
You may also find certain standalone clinics with excellent facilities that offer cosmetic and dental treatments. However, the advantage of being in a full service hospital is that they have specialists in every area, if anything should go wrong. Therefore, it is best to choose one of the good hospitals in Pattaya for your medical treatment. This will not only put you under the care of reliable specialists, but also help with other formalities such as insurance as the customer service staff can advise you on all the various options so that you get the best possible deal on your treatment.
