The Samitvej Srinakarin Hospital in Bangkok is one of the hospitals belonging to the Samitvej Group of Hospitals. The first Samitvej Hospital was founded way back in 1979 by the late Khun Bancha Lamsam of Kasikom Bank and M.R. Bajarisan Jumbala, M.D. The vision of the founders was to establish a hospital which would not only take care of the physical but also the emotional health of its patients. The name Samitvej was given by one of Thailand’s Prime Minister and actually means “assembly of doctors”.
