Nu was just at McCormick Hospital for his motorcycle accident and I have used Chiang Mai Ram 1 several times, Here is a great list of Services for Chiang Mai. but from what I am told by the locals is that:
Maharaj Hospital (Suan Dok Hospital)
should be the first place to go.
Many Expats have told me of the great service they have received at Maharaj and that they also have the best pricing available.
For example, my friend, Toivo and his partner Thip say;
“I have (unfortunately) had a lot of experience with them, and have to say that the service has been top notch. Thip’s stay last week with two Doc exams, two injections, hourly BP checks and a Private room with AC, Fridge, Bathroom, and guest beds was under a 100 bucks USA. Amazing…… OH, and that included breakfast and lunch for the both of us.
If you go to the 13th floor of the building with the emergency entrance (The one nearest Suthep Road) at Maharaj Hospital, you end up in the Special Medical Services Center where lots of people speak English. For a tour or an appointment, contact Kuhn Kessini at:
phone: 081-681-1616 after 9 AM.”
Here’s some links to a little history of the hospital – and an Expats discussion group on the subject. And a map (also shows other Chiang Mai University sites).
I will set an appointment after Songkran to take a tour and set this as the primary hospital we use.
(Ya, that’s right – Songkran will be this 13,14,15th Thai New Year – Sawadee Pee Mai and the famous “water festival”. I’ll be at Central Shopping Center to capture the action – stay tuned for more photos.)
