Chonburi’s Nong Ta Un community celebrated the opening of a new emergency medical building donated by Siam Kolakarn Music School.
The Pornprapha family, which owns the school, donated the 850,000 baht facility to mark its 60th year in business. The “60 Years Siam Kolakarn Building” will be open around the clock to handle emergency cases at Nong Ta Un Hospital. The family’s donation also included upgrades to the parking lot.

Music school managing director, Pornthiwa Pornprapha, helped cut the ribbon on the new building March 9, along with Chonburi Public Health officer Denchai Sornchai.
Nong Ta Un Hospital opened in 1991 as a health center but was upgraded to hospital status in 2011. The facility, on a little more than a rai of land donated by Prasit and Boonchuay Munkhung, has slowly expanded with donations from other community leaders.
