Siriraj The Quality – Assured Organization

Since the founding of Siriraj Hospital 134 years ago, a number of fields have advanced to ensure that Thai patients receive the best medical care possible. To ensure that Siriraj is of high quality, we have requested an evaluation of its quality from a number of institutions. The received accomplishments may be classified to the group by Siriraj’s primary missions, which include the following:

1. Medical Services

  • As the first institution in Thailand, the Healthcare Accreditation Institute endorsed the Hospital Accreditation (HA) standard in 2002 and the Advanced Hospital Accreditation (AHA) standard in 2014 and was approved for reaccreditation in 2017. The AHA standard has been evaluated for the hospital’s quality system, indicating that the institution is a learning, reliable, and high-achievement organization.
  • Three sub-organizations of SIRIRAJ, including Knee Joint Transplantation, Liver Transplantation (in 2016), and the Diabetes Center (in 2021), acquired Disease-Specific Certification (DSC).
  • Siriraj Piyamaharajkarun Hospital passed the Joint Commission International (JCI) assessed in 2014 as the first institute in Thailand.
  • All laboratories of Siriraj pass the ISO standards, classified as 40 of ISO 15189, 40 of ISO 15190, and 3 of ISO 17025.
  • The Thailand Productivity Institute certifies the quality of various organizations with the Thailand Quality Award. Siriraj acquired Thailand Quality Class (TQC) in 2016, TQC + (Operation) in 2020, and TQC + (Innovation) in 2021, the first of the educational institute and medical school category.

2. Medical Education

3. Research of SIRIRAJ

  • SIRIRAJ was the only Thai institution accredited by the Association for the Accreditation of Human Research Protection Program (AAHRPP) in 2014. AAHRPP accreditation is the global gold standard for research centers involving volunteers and is committed to conducting safe and ethical research that meets rigorous standards for quality and protection. The accreditation assures research participants, researchers, sponsors, government regulators, and the general public that an Organization’s human research protection program (HRPP) is focused on excellence.

4. Others

  • In 2019, the Knowledge Management Society (KMS) of Singapore presented Siriraj with the Knowledge Ready Organization (KRO) award, making Siriraj the first organization in Thailand to receive it and the 23rd organization in six countries to do so. This award signifies achievement in the learning and development process for quality management.
  • Bangkok GREEN & CLEAN Hospital Plus Award (BKKGC+), Diamond Level, in 2019-2020
  • Green Government Building Awards on Wastewater Management
  • Low Emission Support Scheme Award

Despite the fact that rewards can help to ensure high level of quality or achievement, Siriraj believes that trust, loyalty, and dependability are more crucial. As a result, Siriraj never stops at the rewards. We prioritize development to provide a fervent service that will win hearts and forge a lasting bond between the hospital and the patients.
