Samui International Hospital, Chaweng

Samui International Hospital, Chaweng

Although nobody wants to end up in a hospital during a holiday, I still though it a good idea to compile a list of hospitals available on Koh Samui.

When I arrived 9 years ago, there were only three hospitals on Samui; Samui International Hospital about which I'm posting right now, the Government Hospital in Nathon and Bandon Hospital in Bophud.

Since than, two more hospitals have been added, Thai International Hospital and Bangkok Samui Hospital, both in Chaweng.

It's also worthwhile to mention in this thread the two hyperbaric chambers that are currently located on Koh Samui.


Samui International Hospital (SIH) has been my hospital of choice for most of my out patient visits. I find the staff friendly and the doctors seem to know what they're doing.

SIH used to be a resort, way back when and there's a swimming pool behind the reception area, which is used for dive training by some dive centres on the island!


The location of SIH is excellent, almost smack downtown Chaweng, towards the Northern part, near the Amari resort.

Here's their full contact info;
