Welcome to the Kwai River Christian Hospital web site.

Kwai River Christian Hospital (KRCH) is situated in Thailand, in the Western mountainous region of the Thai-Burma border, 16 km from the town of Sangklaburi, in the Province of Kanchanaburi. (See map.)

KRCH is a 45 bed rural hospital with busy outpatients and inpatients departments and a public health unit, which treats each patient as an individual without bias towards their religion, nationality, race, gender or wealth.

Since its inception in a room of the first Doctor's house in 1960, the hospital's aim has been to offer high quality medical care and to present the Gospel to a marginalised, poor and neglected community, in an area where the majority of the population have no nationality or registration papers and are therefore not eligible to use government health services.
