When people are going on vacation they usually do not want to think about medicine, insurance and hospitals.
But life can be unpredictable and the tropics in addition to the beautiful sun, sea and fruits, might sometimes be dangerous.

therefore:
1. Before the trip get yourself a travel insurance.
2. Get a first aid kit with the necessary medicines.
Read more about the pharmacies and drugs on Ko Samui here and here.
3. Stay in touch in case you have to call for help, in case of emergency.

In case you have an insurance you won’t have to think which of the hospitals to choose from.
Because the rules for insurance companies state that first you need to call the telephone number listed on your insurance policy!
This is done to ensure that the company is confident that your case qualifies for the insurance terms, so that you contact the very hospital, the company has a contract with, and so they could keep under surveillance your treatment and make sure all the services are billed correctly.

Even if you know which of the hospitals your insurance company will send you to, you still need to call them!
At least because some things change very quickly, and you might check in to the wrong hospital, that the insurance company will refuses to pay for.

Exceptions would be the cases of emergency, when there is no possibility of contact with the insurance company prior to the delivering of health services.
For example, when a patient is unconscious, and there is no trustees around at the moment.
In these cases, first comes the first aid, and after that doctors will proceed to the insurance agreement.

For an overview of what hospitals are available on Koh Samui, I will give you a list including contacts and Google-coordinates.
So here are Koh Samui hospitals, which not only have hospital for in-patients, but also the emergency room and dental office.
The hospitals are listed from private and expensive to municipalities.

1. Bangkok Hospital Samui (BHS)
Located in the area of Chaweng Beach, on the ring road, in the direction of Chaweng Chaweng Noi.
Google coordinate - 9.514534,100.04971
Tel. (+66) 77429500 or 77429500 0 (when dialing from a local phone)
Emergency: 1719 or 1724 (dialing only from a local phone)
Website: http://www.samuihospital.com


A hospital network, owned by the same owners as the boutique airline Bangkok Airways. Beautiful Samui airport is also their property.
If it is necessary to move the patient, or deliver medicines, blood and equipment - they engage aviation.
Hospitals of that network are available in all the major cities and resorts in Thailand.
Their experts are trained in the U.S., and the network is officially certified to provide services to foreign clients. According to official statistics more than 60% of their patients are foreigners. Therefore there are translators available. Local residents who have good insurance or income - also prefer to be treated here.
They provide service at your house or hotel.

Cost:
business hours (8 to 17) - 7500 baht
night time - 9500 baht.


In case of hospitalization, this amount is included in the final bill to the insurance company.
Also Bangkok Hospital Samui receives patients from islands Koh Tao (tel. 077 456 037) and Koh Phangan (tel. 077 239 959) where its affiliates redirect patients to Koh Samui.

The hospital has its membership cards, giving good discounts on the services of the hospital. The higher the cost of the card, the more discounts you get on it. If you are planning a medical examination and treatment it would makes sense to buy a card in advance.
Also, the hospital provides health examination programs. Depending on the age and sex of the patient the program includes a different set of tests and doctors to visits.
Periodically it announces programs or vaccination, or even some measures to improve the overall health of the citizens, back to back holidays (such as Mother's Day) or making seasonal offerings (like the annual flu vaccination.)

2. Thai International Hospital
This hospital is located in the area of Chaweng Beach, close to the ring road. Entrance to the hospital from the ring road is opposite the shopping complex with supermarket Tesco Lotus.
Tel: +66 (0) 7724 5721 (and numbers ending in 22, 23 ... up to 26)
Google - 9.535336,100.042436
Website: http://www.thaiinterhospital.com/

Thai International Hospital is relatively new and fairly well equipped.
Foreign insurance companies often send clients here, and German pensioners, known for their prudence and thrift, prefer to be treated here.
There is also a program for comprehensive health check.

3. Bandon International Hospital
Located on the ring road, next to the Big C supermarket.
Bophut area.
Tel. Hospital: +66 (0) 7724 5236 and +66 (0) 7724 5237
Tel. emergency: +66 (0) 7724 5238 and +66 (0) 7724 5239

There is a branch of the hospital on the island of Koh Phangan, and recently opened office in Chaweng, in Xin City Shopping Mall. According to some reports, there is a branch on the island of Koh Tao.
The equipment here is slightly out of date, and even though the rooms are being renovated, but th buildings is rather old.
Staff is as responsive and caring, as in all the other hospitals in Samui.
Doctors are qualified, the flow of patients is large.
But there is clearly not enough of diagnostic equipment.
At the same time it also has a comprehensive program of health checks, but the included number of examinations is smaller than that of the BSH.


4. Samui International Hospital
Is a hospital in the north of Chaweng, but not on the ring road this time.
Next - hotels such as Amari and Akyra Chura.
Originally, it was a hotel which in 1997 became the hospital.
That's why it is the only hospital on Ko Samui with a pool.
Tel: +66 (0) 7723 0781, +66 (0) 7723 0782, +66 (0) 7742 2272 and +66 (0) 7741-1349
Website: http://www.sih.co.th
Google coordinate - 9.538659,100.069795

There is a doctor on call service to your home or hotel.

5. Samui Government Hospital
This is a municipal hospital in Nathon, located not far from the Immigration Office.
Tel: +66 (0) 7742 1230, +66 (0) 7742 1231 and +66 (0) 7742 1232
Emergency: 1669 (dialing only from a local phone)
Google coordinate - 9.521851,99.935497
Website: http://www.samuihospital.go.th/web/en/

Serves mostly local people who have social health insurance (issued by the employer).
Foreigners can also be treated, but for the money. Staff speaks English.
As far as we found out the they do not work with insurance companies.
If you are going to use their services, then make sure that all the documents have been issued to you in English.

It's worth noting that in the municipal hospital the chambers are usually joint where patients and their close relatives are separated from other patients and relatives only by a screen. During giving birth in the public hospital in Koh Samui husbands are not allowed to be inside (he spends the night with the rest of the men on wooden benches), and the woman giving birth is also staying in the general ward. For example, there are wards for 40 patients.
However, there's a separate chamber (for 14 - 16 people, and they are quite comfortable), as well as special rooms for the monks, that can take in ordinary patients, if at this moment there is no clergy in need of treatment.
In private hospitals, it would be extremely individual rooms with varying levels of comfort and convenience, but there is always enough space for family and friends, who will take care of the patient, support him morally and physically. One fully loaded bed is designed specifically for family members. Relatives are staying free of charge.

Free advice in case you don’t have a travel insurance:
In the hospitals you can... let’s not say bargain, but let's say - before, not after, agree on the minimum necessary set of manipulations instead of the "full package" that would have been made, if you had a normal insurance with "limitless" covering.
Knowing that you are going to pay for the reception and treatment by yourself, the manager of the hospital or your health care provider may offer options how to reduce your costs:
- will prescribe medicines you can buy in a regular pharmacy, instead of at the hospital where it will be more expensive (a tip: bring with you to the reception all those medicines that you already have - perhaps you won’t even need to buy anything);
- Offer local anesthesia instead of general;
- Agree to sew up some wounds not in the operating room (its use is not cheap), but right in the waiting room;
- Tells you where to make a bandage cheaper without visiting their hospital;
- Will give you a membership card, on which the hospital will give good discounts, or buy a special package, which includes all the necessary procedures, but all together they will come out cheaper.

Just remember that “negotiating” here you need to do with a friendly smile.
It's not them, it's you who needs to save now so behave accordingly.

In general, when dealing with private medicine in Thailand one must not forget that it is a business after all.
Just business, with all its laws and regulations.
Consider this point, and you will avoid some of the frustrations and annoyances.

Please note that if you want to take urgent tests or examination (at night), and if you want to use equipment that is not provided by a private hospital, you will be transported to the municipal hospital in Nathon. Sometimes you even have to insist on that, if doctors are being skeptical or you have a "slow" insurance company.
If the situation requires a more detailed inspection or more qualified treatment, the patient is sent to the mainland in Surat Thani in Thaksin Hospital. Or transported to Bangkok.
For the record: Taksin Hospital - http://www.taksinhosp.go.th/web/ (website in Thai). Usually there is a lot of patients, and some particular types of examinations and tests you will have to wait for a couple of weeks.

*** We have asked our Thai friends and it turned out that they prefer to be treated either in Bangkok Hospital Samui, or the municipal one in Nathon. Or going to the mainland in Surat Thani in Thaksin Hospital.

In addition to the hospitals Samui has plenty of private physicians which are all the same doctors who are most of the time working in a hospital, and after that go to their own office (basically working for themselves).
In this case, the doctor's consultation will cost much cheaper, and the necessary studies will be performed in the same hospital, with which he has an arrangement. And you won’t even have to go anywhere – all the analyzes will be brought there by a special employee.

In this office (pictured above), which is located next to the computer store JIB opposite Makro, you will find orthopedist and allergist.
The largest number of such offices are concentrated in Nathon. They mainly occupy the ground floor of the same house where the doctor’s family resides.
Doctors' offices are periodically moving from one place to another, and in order to know the current situation it is better to ask some of your Thai friends, or ask in one of our groups.

For example, there is a good eye doctor in Nathon: 9.534435,99.934959
Next to his office is a gynecologist office.
There is a private gynecologist next to municipal hospital.
You can make an appointment at the hospital too, but it only happens 1-2 times a week.
A good children's doctor (pediatrician) at Lamai - Dr. Cellada or Choeladda.


In addition to pediatric the doctor involved in gynecology, can do simple surgery, treat injuries after an accident, make blood and urine tests, and an ultrasound examination.
Working hours are every day, except Sunday, from 12 to 19-30.
Google-coordinate: 9.470588,100.048193

In addition to the hospital with a full range of services there are local district clinics on the island.

They can be found in every area of the island, and mainly serve the local population.
But can also accept tourists.
If you can explain in simple sign-mime-English language exactly what you need, then some simple treatments such as washing and dressing wounds, or vaccinations, or ordinary medical examination it will cost considerably less than in the hospital.

For example, on Maenam you will such clinic here: 9.568584,99.997332
It's located between Soi 4 and Home Mart.

There is the same health center in Bophut -  9.560856,100.04031.

Rescue Samui - 077421444.

Friends, take care of yourself and do not get sick!
Enjoy your holiday on Samui.
