Hospital for Topical Diseases
The Hospital for Tropical Diseases was established by the late Professor Emeritus Chamlong Harinasuta and the late Professor Khunying Tranakchit Harinasuta. It commenced operations on 23 February 1961. The Hospital is located at 420/6 Ratchawithi Road, Ratchathewi District, Bangkok Thailand. It forms an integral part of the services provided by the Faculty of Tropical Medicine, Mahidol University

At the start, the Hospital had only one in-patient ward with 20 beds. All patients were referred and other hospitals, mainly Siriraj Hospital. The Outpatient Department was later established, in September 1962. The number of patients increased dramatically. With strong support from the Royal Thai Government, the Hospital for Tropical Diseases was able to set up new wards, new services, and facilities. Many buildings were constructed to meet the increasing demand. The first Director of the Hospital was Professor Khunying Tranakchit Harinasuta.


Nowadays, the Hospital has 250 beds. Although it is a center for tropical diseases treatment and research, our staffs can treat patients with general medical problems and pediatric problems, such as diabetes, hypertension, lung diseases, renal diseases and liver diseases. We have many special clinics, including clinics for gnathostomiasis, dermatological diseases, travel medicine, chest diseases, nephrology (kidney diseases), Thai traditional medicine, and Chinese traditional acupuncture.
