Kritsada said Pattaya’s new hospital is a secondary level 2.1 hospital with 110 beds, which qualifies it for the Health Ministry’s standard as a medical center where social security insurance can be used. The facility is now registered as PCU service center and service unit.

Anyone interested in changing their social security privileges to Pattaya Hospital need to present a medical certificate and ID card or other card issued by the government.

Those interested can contact 1506 or Pattaya hospital 038-103-900 for more information.
