Cardiology : Three leading hospitals in Thailand have received Clinical Care Program Certification (CCPC) for Cardiology (heart disease)
- Samitivej Hospital: Clinical Care Program Certification (CCPC) for Acute Myocardial Infarction
With a team of doctors, nurses and a Coronary Angiography room ready 24 hours a day, Samitivej Hospital’s Heart Centre can provide emergency assistance to patients within 90 minutes of their arrival to the hospital.
- Bangkok Hospital: Clinical Care Program Certification (CCPC) for Acute Coronary Syndrome.
Usually associated with coronary thrombosis, Acute Coronary Syndrome is recognizable by a set of signs which can bring upon a sudden and unexpected reduced flow of blood to the heart. It can be effectively treated if diagnosed promptly.
- Bumrungrad Hospital: Clinical Care Program Certification (CCPC) for Acute Myocardial Infarction with ST Segment Elevation
Acute myocardial infarction (AMI), or as it is commonly known, a heart attack, is the disruption of the blood supply to the heart causing heart cells to die. This is an irreversible necrosis of the heart muscle resulting from an imbalance of oxygen supply and demand.
Primary Stroke: A Primary Stroke Fast Track system in leading hospitals calls for the availability of a neurosurgeon to diagnose patients suffering from a stroke within 45 minutes of their arrival at the hospital. The neurosurgeon will also inform the level of risk posed to the patient, who will then be sent for a CT Scan and undergo laboratory tests. The neurosurgeon then collects and examines all the test results to begin treatment immediately. Treatment for stroke patients must be ‘fast and the best’.
There are three leading hospitals in Thailand that have received Clinical Care Program Certification (CCPC) for their primary stroke program:
- Samitivej Srinakarin Hospital
- Bangkok Hospital
- Bumrungrad Hospital
Osteoarthritis of the Knee: Samitivej Sukhumvit Hospital has received Clinical Care Program Certification (CCPC) for Osteoarthritis of the Knee. – Treatment can be done either through medication, physiotherapy or surgery using the latest medical technology to reduce pain and complications, slowing down the degeneration of the knee joints to prevent any disability.

Low Back Pain: Samitivej Srinakarin Hospital has received Clinical Care Program Certification (CCPC) for Low Back Pain. – Samitivej Srinakarin Hospital’s Orthopedic and Spinal Centre is the first hospital in Asia to be awarded the JCI CCPC certification for Low Back Pain.

Some healthy surrounding tissue may also have to be removed. It is normal on conclusion of breast-conserving therapy that the patient undergoes radiation treatment.
