Dr. Rattinan Treeratana, Founder and Chairman of Rattinan Medical Center, said that the center has been providing excellent medical services for over 24 years, ever since the establishment of Rattinan Clinic in 1999. Over the years, the clinic has evolved and refined its services to stay current, building a reputation for exceptional plastic surgical procedures and excellent treatment outcomes. The clinic was eventually rebranded as the Rattinan Medical Center, a well-known aesthetic medical center in the Asia-Pacific region.
The partnership between the Rattinan Medical Center and FICO Group marks a significant milestone in the center's journey to becoming an innovative hospital that provides comprehensive and integrated care with the highest quality standards.
The center is set to open at the end of 2023, in time for the peak tourism season in the fourth quarter. The Thai government has recently declared a policy to position the country as a hub for medical tourism, making the partnership between Rattinan Medical Center and FICO Group even more significant.
Additionally, the Medical Tourism Association ranked Thailand's medical tourism industry among the top 5 in the world in 2021, further cementing its position as a top destination for medical tourism. This recognition highlights the country's readiness to accommodate all aspects of wellness tourism, including cosmetic surgery, which can drive the economy and generate significant income.
According to the Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT), the number of tourist arrivals has been steadily increasing after the easing of COVID-19 restrictions and the lifting of travel restrictions by the Chinese government. TAT has set a target of 25 million foreign tourists in 2023, in line with the Bank of Thailand's monetary policy report, which projects a growth rate of 3.7% in the tourism sector, with 22 million foreign tourists visiting Thailand in 2023. The number of foreign tourists is expected to continue to rise and reach 31.5 million in 2024.
Dr. Suthipong Treeratana, CEO of Rattinan Medical Center, reveals that seeking medical check-ups and cosmetic surgeries while traveling has become a popular trend, particularly among foreign tourists, including Chinese tourists, who are one of our main target segments.
This is due to the increasing acceptance and mainstreaming of plastic surgery in society. Over the years, Rattinan Medical Center has achieved tremendous growth and success, seeing an average yearly growth of 15% since 2012, far surpassing the industry average. Despite the impact of COVID-19, the center saw a 60% increase in 2022. The aim is to increase the number of foreign clients to one-third in 2023, capitalizing on the rapidly growing cosmetic surgery market globally and in Thailand, which is estimated to grow at an average annual rate of 16.6% from 2020.
"I am delighted to announce the partnership between Rattinan Medical Center and FICO Group for the mixed-use project, Town Hall Sukhumvit 49, which will bring a new level of growth for our center," said Dr. Suthipong. "Located in the thriving heart of Sukhumvit, the project will feature residential buildings, offices, community malls, and complete health centers, making it a sought-after wellness destination for those who prioritize health and beauty when it opens in 2024."
