HRH Princess Maha Chakri Sirindhorn welcomed to the island

PHUKET: HRH Princess Maha Chakri Sirindhorn arrived on the island to chair the formal opening of two of Vachira Phuket Hospital’s new buildings yesterday.

The ceremony highlighted both the Chalermprakiat 59 Pansa and the Baan Khun Poom buildings.

The Khun Poom building was constructed under the request of Princess Sirindhorn in memory of HM King Bhumibol Adulyadej’s grandson, Bhumi Jensen, who passed away in the 2004 tsunami. The building is used as a pediatric research and medical center.

The Chalermprakiat 59 Pansa building was constructed in compliance with a Memorandum of Understanding between Vachira Phuket Hospital and Walailak University. The medical and learning center provides housing for medical students from rural areas.
