The recent emergency landing of Singapore Airlines flight SQ321, successfully managed by the BDMS Mass Casualty Management Team and other responders, highlights the importance of these elements in saving lives.

“At BDMS, our commitment to providing world-class medical care extends beyond Thailand’s borders,” said
Dr. Poramaporn Prasarttong-Osoth, President and Senior CEO Group 1 of Bangkok Dusit Medical Services Public Company Limited (BDMS). “Through our extensive network of hospitals and strategic partnerships across the Asia-Pacific region, we are dedicated to fostering a culture of readiness and resilience, setting a new standard for patient care and community resilience.”

The BDMS Trauma Network, with 23 strategically located trauma centers nationwide, ensures seamless coordination and extends BDMS’s commitment to providing swift, coordinated care in times of crisis. The network prioritizes continuous training and regular drills to keep skills sharp and foster teamwork.

“Our strong trauma network covers all regions and tourist cities in Thailand, with a standardized trauma care management system. This gives citizens and tourists confidence in our ability to handle various types of disasters and emergencies, whether they occur on land, at sea, or in the air,”
Dr. Prasarttong-Osoth added.

This expertise is backed by state-of-the-art facilities and technology at the BDMS Trauma Centers, featuring dedicated trauma bays, cutting-edge imaging equipment, and specialized operating rooms. The centers also boast a fleet of helicopter and air ambulances for rapid evacuation and transport.

The network’s dedication to setting a new standard for patient care is further demonstrated by its comprehensive trauma care process, which includes rapid EMS dispatch, triage and assessment, initial stabilization, coordinated specialist care, and advanced treatment capabilities.
