Laguna Phuket and Bangkok Dusit Medical Services (BDMS) have signed an MoU to develop a world-class medical and wellness centre within the Thai integrated resort.
Scheduled to open early-2023, Laguna Wellness by BDMS Phuket will sit within the Canal Village, the integrated resort’s retail and community services hub, and offer healthcare and wellness support, including regenerative medicine, rehabilitation and preventive cardiology services.
Medical tourists visiting the facility will be able to enjoy Laguna Phuket’s variety of accommodation and recreational facilities.
Laguna Wellness by BDMS Phuket is expected to position Laguna Phuket as a premium medical tourism hub in the region, as well as give resort residents access to the latest medical technology and the expertise of world-class medical professionals.
Ravi Chandran, CEO of Laguna Resorts & Hotels, said: “This development will be a game-changer and further cement Laguna Phuket’s reputation as Thailand’s leading integrated destination for tourism and residential lifestyle offerings.”
Narinatara Boonjongcharoen, CEO of BDMS Group 6, which operates hospitals in Hat Yai, Suratthani, Koh Samui and Phuket, said the project would align with Phuket’s strategy as a medical and wellness destination.
“We will also collaborate with BDMS Wellness Clinic, our pioneer model based in Bangkok, for their wellness and regenerative expertise,” added Narinatara.
