King Chulalongkorn Memorial Hospital

King Chulalongkorn Memorial Hospital is responsible for providing medical services, health promotion, restoring patients’ physical competency both in time of war and peace, and supporting medical trainings and studies.


King Chulalongkorn Memorial Hospital was built on King Vajiravudh’s initiative. While King Chulalongkorn was alive, he initiated the establishment of the Thai Red Cross Society, then known as the Red Unalom Council, to provide medical treatment. Therefore, King Vajiravudh thought that building a Red Cross Hospital would be a great way to represent his father’s permanent contribution to society and would be an honour to the country. With donations gathered from his siblings together with funds contributed from the Red Unalom Council, the King had a hospital built and named it King Chulalongkorn Memorial Hospital” after his father. On 30 May 1914, he presided over its opening ceremony.

As of the Thai Red Cross Society’s statements on 1 May 1914, the objectives of King Chulalongkorn Memorial Hospital were to cherish the honour of King Chulalongkorn, King Vajiravudh and also the Thai nation. It provides medical services to the general public without discriminations. Modern medical technology and science as well as computer systems are used in its treatment.

In addition, King Chulalongkorn Memorial Hospital also serves as a training venue for medical students and residents of the Faculty of Medicine, Chulalongkorn University and nursing students of Srisavarindhira Thai Red Cross Institute of Nursing. Hence, the Hospital can be regarded as a centre of academic excellence in many medical fields and has consistently displayed a strong determination to further develop its services.
