Bangkok Trip–Day 2

This is the lobby of BNH Hospital where Maryknollers have been treated for the past thirty years. It is a far cry from some of the hospitals Maryknoll people encounter overseas. I was there for an annual medical exam which we are not able to have done in Cambodia.
This is a little diorama of a VIP room at the old Bangkok Nursing Home which became BNH Hospital. BNH Hospital has more than a 120 year history, one of the first medical facilities in Thailand.
Upstairs on the Internal Medicine floor where I spent much of my time is this display proclaiming that “100 Years Old is the ‘New 60′”. More attention is being paid to older people now in Thailand which is predicted to become an “ageing society” in 2021 when 20% of the population will be elderly.
