Thailand’s Bumrungrad International Hospital treats more than a million patients a year – 30,000 from North America. International patients from Europe, the Middle East, Asia and the Americas represent 42% of Bumrungrad’s volume and greater than 50% of revenues. So how did this Bangkok-based medical center become known as the mecca for medical tourism? The answer lies in a pretty straightforward value proposition – quality, value and access – and in a management perspective that understands the marketing power of needs-based segmentation, value innovation and brand experience.
Bumrangrad’s CEO, Mark Banner, and director of marketing, Kenneth Mays, were recently interviewed by Ravi Aron, a senior fellow with the William and Phyllis Mack Center for Technological Innovation at Wharton.
