In 2015, Bangkok Dusit Medical Services Public Company Limited was met with many challenging economic factors. Despite the improvement in the domestic political environment and some growing confidence in the country’s economy, some regions of the country still faced economic slowdown. However, with the strength of the BDMS network, the Company was able to grow as a whole as anticipated.
Throughout the past 43 years, the Company has determined to enhance our healthcare services to meet the international standards of leading overseas hospitals. We have also collaborated with various leading foreign medical institutions in terms of academics and research. Examples of such institutions are the University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center, Department of Orthopaedic Surgery at Stanford University, Oregon Health & Science University (OHSU) and Nagoya University, Japan. This is another policy that elevates the quality of healthcare services provided by the BDMS network of hospitals to meet international standards, which is one of our main missions to our customers who have continuously put their trust in our company.
Apart from our efforts to develop medical knowledge and the quality of our services, in 2015, the Company received Corporate Governance Rating (CGR) of “Very Good CG Scoring” from the Thai Institute of Directors, the Stock Exchange of Thailand and the Office of the Securities and Exchange Commission. The Company also received a score of 99.5% from evaluation of the quality of the 2015 Annual General Shareholders Meeting, as well as received the Outstanding Investor Relations Award 2015 for companies with market capitalization over Baht 100,000 million from the Stock Exchange of Thailand. BDMS strives to continue to improve and develop our corporate governance. To this end, the Board of Directors, management and all personnel are determined to operate our business with transparency as well as to strictly adhere to business ethics.
On behalf of Bangkok Dusit Medical Services Public Company Limited, I would like to thank the doctors, nurses, executives and all personnel for dedicating their skills and efforts to propel the Company to grow with stability and sustainability. I would also like to express my sincere gratitude to our investors and stakeholders who have continually entrusted and supported us.
Hon. Prof. Dr. Arun Pausawasdi
Chairman of the Board of Directors
