WIH International Hospital: A Legacy of Care

WIH International Hospital: A Legacy of Care

Dr. Chettawut Tulayaphanich, a distinguished plastic and reconstructive surgeon serving as the CEO of WIH International Hospital, established his cosmetic surgery center under his own name in 1998. Operating consistently within this facility, he has acquired significant expertise in his field over the years.

Due to Dr. Chettauwt’s renowned expertise in gender-affirming surgeries for transgender patients, the surgery center has gained international recognition. It has attracted a considerable number of satisfied patients, leading to positive referrals. Acknowledging the potential for business expansion, Dr. Chattawut and the Tulayapanich family have developed a strategic plan, envisioning the creation of a comprehensive, state-of-the-art specialized hospital. This initiative aims to address the rising demand for complex surgeries, offering extensive services for both outpatient and inpatient care.

The hospital project began in 2012, with an architectural design inspired by origami, the Japanese art of paper folding. This art form symbolizes the wonder of shape transformation and movement. Comparatively, the surgical procedures performed at the hospital are likened to the work of a plastic surgeon, adjusting and enhancing forms for aesthetic improvement and achieving optimal surgical outcomes.

Origin of the Hospital’s Name (WIH)

The letter “W” comes from the Thai word “วัทธนเชฏฐ์” (Watthana Chet), meaning someone with a beautiful and noble appearance, wealth, and exceptional intelligence. The letters “I” and “H” stand for International and Hospital, respectively.

The concept behind the WIH Hospital Logo

The idea behind the WIH Hospital Logo is to create a modern and easily memorable design. It features a modified quadrilateral resembling the appearance of a trapezoid and transforms in shape to depict the face of a deity or angel adorned with a crown-like headdress.
