Nakhon Ratchasima hospital opens first one-day surgery centre

Maharat Nakhon Ratchasima Hospital has become the first medical facility in Health Area 9 to establish a one-day surgery centre.

The establishment of the centres is, in part, designed to narrow the social gap and give people better access to advanced technology via minimally invasive surgery.

The hospital's deputy director Dr Suirasit Jitpitaklert is chief service officer for Health Area 9, which covers Nakhon Ratchasima, Chaiyaphum, Buri Ram and Surin.

Suirasit presided over the centre's opening ceremony on Monday morning.

The centre’s establishment is in line with Ministry of Public Health policy to have hospitals provide one-day surgery services.

By 2021, each health area must have at least one hospital providing the service.

Maharat Nakhon Ratchasima Hospital Department of Surgery chief, Dr Pinai Niranrungreung, said minimally invasive laparoscopic surgery will allow patients to recover fast.

Pinai said it will also lower the infection risk, reducing patients’ treatment costs and loss of income due to being off work.

Pinai said it will also reduce hospital overcrowding issues and free up space for emergency cases and people suffering medical complications.
