Corporate Activities
1. World Medical Hospital, one of BCH’s hospital chain, launched the campaign called “Best Job in Thailand” and job position called “happiness observer”. We believed that in order to enhance the most effective treatment for the patient to get a full recover weren’t just about the physical aspect of care in the hospital. If we were able to understand what was going on with the patients’ mental health, we could enhance the recovery speeds. The winner of this campaign, Ms. Nicharee Peneakchannasak was a student who lost her both legs in a train accident in Singapore, received a 6 months contract with 1 million baht salary. 2. BCH led by the management team hosting “Kasemrad Super Run” Fit Heart with BCH. The donation was contributed to Pediatric Cardiac Surgery Foundation under Rajavithi Hospital for young kids and to contribute on building the 100 Years of Meditation Practice Building for Somdet Phra Nyanasamvara in Nakornpathom province. In the same year, the Company has donated AED machine and gave out the scholarship to students at Mahidol University.

Succession Plan & Objective
The management acknowledges that a good succession plan enables a smooth transition with less likelihood of disruption to operations. Thus, the management planned for their successors from the beginning to have the diversity of educational backgrounds in each of their child. The eldest, who currently hats the position of Chief Operating Officer, graduated with doctor of medicine. The middle, who currently hats the position of Chief Marketing Officer, graduated with Master of Marketing. And, the youngest who currently hats the position of Chief Financial Officer, graduated with a Master of Finance.

By planning well in advance BCH can maximize the value of business and enable it to meet future situation.

Human resource management is one of the crucial aspects. With the expectation to increase staff satisfaction, employee productivity and reduce staff turnover rate, BCH has been conducting different activities such as annual sport day, monthly staffs’ birthday party, team building program for department head, annual check-up and regular training.

One of the crucial aspects is to improve staffs’ mindset. Mindset defines the quality of work and outcome especially in the service industry like hospital. BCH wants to make sure that the staffs are treated as a family member and feel like they are at home even they are at work.

In order to improve staffs’ mindset, BCH constantly provides the training program to implant a positive mindset for them to pour their heart out servicing our patients. Furthermore, it is also crucial for our staffs to understand the patients’ emotion that come for the treatment. Because the patients will need the emotional support as well as the physical support while getting the treatment and service at our hospital.
