Professor Emeritus Thirachai Chantharotsiri
M.D., Director of Bhumirajanagarindra Kidney Institute Hospital

I would like to thank Thai Beverage Public Company Limited for recognizing the importance of creating social benefit through the continuous promotion of public health and the wellbeing of members of society. In ensuring the health and wellbeing of the people, the company has provided support for and also established many useful public health projects through the Sirivadhanabhakdi Foundation, such as the Bhumirajanagarindra Kidney Institute Hospital founded on the great auspicious occasion of His Majesty the King Bhumibol Adulyadej’s Diamond Jubilee in 2006. In remembrance of His Majesty King Bhumibol Adulyadej’s graciousness to the people of Thailand, Khun Charoen, Khunying Wanna Sirivadhanabhakdi and the Sirivadhanabhakdi family established “Bhumirajanagarindra Kidney Institute Hospital,” the first kidney hospital in Thailand. Furthermore, Her Royal Highness Princess Maha Chakri Sirindhorn is the chairperson of the Bhumirajanagarindra Kidney Institute Hospital Foundation. It aims for the hospital to become the leading specialized hospital in Asia, providing comprehensive care for patients with renal disease. In addition to the establishment of this hospital, ThaiBev continues to support other important public health initiatives on behalf of the Sirivadhanabhakdi Foundation by Khun Charoen and Khunying Wanna Sirivadhanabhakdi.

STORY Bhumirajanagarindra Kidney Institute Hospital
The hospital has been operating since September 2012, providing in total 279,135 outpatient services and 151,302 rounds of dialysis to patients. The hospital is expanding its dialysis services through the addition of 16 hemodialysis machines. The number of patients undergoing vascular surgery was 1,493. There were 826 cases of kidney and urinary tract and prostate surgeries, and 7 renal transplant surgeries successfully completed. The hospital has also educated people about kidney disease and self-care every three months, for a total of 16 times, reaching over 4,000 participants.

In addition, a kidney disease prevention project has been undertaken in a community in Kamphaeng Phet Province, and a research project provides patients with kidney problems with knowledge about the disease so that they can better live with the condition and improve their quality of life. A collaboration with the Ministry of Public Health provides care and kidney disease prevention in communities and in various hospitals under the Ministry of Public Health nationwide.
“Chang Clinical Medicine” Project
This mobile clinic is in Khlong Khlung District, Kamphaeng Phet Province. It was founded to provide free treatment to community members in Kamphaeng Phet Province and in neighboring areas. It provides access to treatment and care by effective caregivers. The project follows the determination of Khun Charoen and Khunying Wanna Sirivadhanabhakdi, President and Vice Chairman of Thai Beverage Public Company Limited, who said since its founding that “Thai people can share with each other.”

In addition to medical assistance in the community around the factory, the Sirivadhanabhakdi Foundation and ThaiBev also have ongoing projects, such as the annual health check-up program for students and teachers of Wat Homkret School. Another project is the “Prostheses for the Handicapped and Health Examination for the Elderly” that has provided 60 prostheses to disabled persons and 100 health checkups to the elderly. It has also provided hearing aids, eyeglasses, and wood crutches for elderly people free of charge.
Other Public Health Projects:
  • Established the Sirivadhanabhakdi Building 1-2 at Wat Yan Sangwararam Hospital, Chonburi Province
  • Provided medical equipment to the Ministry of Public Health in order to support various projects. ThaiBev has also sponsored the Annual Non-Communicable Disease Conference (NCD Forum) in 2016 and 2017, allocating one million baht per year. In addition, it donated medical equipment to hospitals under the Ministry of Public Health, including Chao Praya Aphai Phubet Hospital, Pattani Hospital, Phra Buddhachinaraj Hospital, Sampran Hospital in Nakhon Pathom Province, Maharaj Hospital in Nakorn Sri Thammarat Province, and Cha Uat Hospital in Nakhon Sri Thammarat Province.
  • Donated money to Phromburi Hospital in Singburi Province. ThaiBev also joined the official opening of the 99th Anniversary of Phra Thammapanyabodi (Thawon Charoenphanit) building, which is to be used for activities related to patients and the public.
  • Contributed 11 million baht to the “Kao Kon La Kao” project to purchase medical equipment for the Nawamin Taraphob 84 Years Building, Faculty of Medicine, Siriraj Hospital, Mahidol University.
  • Donated money for public health works to Sri Sangwornsukothai Hospital, Siriraj Foundation and the Heart Foundation of Thailand.
