On 16th November 2013, Her Royal Highness Princess Maha Chakri Sirindhorn named our faculty hospital ‘Suddavej Hospital’ (meaning ‘good physician’) and granted permission for her insignia (..) to adorn the building when construction was complete. On 22nd March 2016, following the hospital’s construction, HRH Princess Sirindhorn then led a formal opening ceremony. Referring to her father HRH Rama IX in this ceremony, she said “Your loyal subjects are most grateful for Your Majesty’s boundless and gracious kindness, and for your blessing of the many patients, visitors, and staff of Mahasarakham University Faculty of Medicine.”
