About Wattanapat Hospital

Located at 247/ 2 Phatalung road, the gateway to downtown of Trang, Wattanapat Hospital was established since 1957. It is a renowned, fully staffed and equipped 120-bed hospital serving people in Trang, Krabi, Phatalung, and nearby provinces for half a decade.

Since the establishment, the hospital has long been called by most people as “Ban Mor Vit (Dr. Vit’s House)” for caring and empathy of Dr. Vittaya, the founder, and his wife (Mrs. Amara). This is the reason why people call this neighborhood as “Sam Yak MOR Vit (Dr. Vit Intersection)”.
