PTTEP supports medical centres in dealing with the COVID-19 pandemic in Thailand and the countries where PTTEP operates to strengthen good health and well-being for people of all ages.
In Thailand, the key operating sites are in various regions of the country.

Moreover, the graduated Nurse Aids are serving more than 4 million people from Songkhla and nearby provinces.
The development of the Lan Krabue Hospital as a centre of medical service has helped serve 110,000 patients in a year. Meanwhile, the increased population enabled Songkhla Hospital to serve over 2,000 people per day. Furthermore, the company’s ‘Mobile Health Check’ project has helped to increase awareness of community members’ healthcare by growing to 200 people per visit.
PTTEP believes that with operations based on its strong foundation of stakeholders’ interests, PTTEP will deliver value and sustainable development to society.
