Alliance International Medical Centre

The Alliance International Medical Centre is the newest medical centre in Vientiane. The clinic, located at the brand new Honda Centre on Luang Prabang Rd just before the airport, is part of a venture coordinated between the New Chip Xeng company of Laos and Wattana Hospital Group of Thailand. This alliance has worked out well and the facility, aesthetically speaking, is the height of modernity. Its sleekly designed floors and sparkling clean waiting rooms give a great first impression, as do the well trained staff.

The Alliance International Medical Centre, is open for business but will not be fully operational until July this year when the centre hopes to have its official opening.  Alliance will soon be offering Diabetes and Hypertension specialists, Pediatrics and child development specialists, a women’s  clinic, optical specialists, a skin care center and health check-up centre. The facilities at the centre include a pharmacy, laboratory, x-ray equipment, ultrasound and mammogram equipment and echo-cardiogram equipment.

AIMC

Most current doctors on staff are from Thailand, with some from Laos and many have been educated overseas. The rest of the staff, including nurses, pharmacists, lab staff and even receptionists have undergone extensive training at the Wattana Hospital in Nong Khai. An appointment is not necessary for a general consultation, however visits to specialists will require some advance notice. Price wise, Alliance is quite competitive. Patients can undergo a full Health Checkup (standard) for as low as $80 USD, whilst a series of infant vaccines costs $380 USD. The centre plans to open a small café at the bottom floor alongside a pharmacy and an eyewear outlet, whilst at the top floor, affording a view of the Mekong river, the centre plans to open a health and beauty spa.

As Alliance has only recently opened they are still in the process of working out agreements with various insurance companies, but expats who visit the clinic will be able to make payments by Visa or Mastercard. An ordinary consultation will cost around USD $35 and it will be possible to undergo a full health checkup without travelling to Udon Thani or Bangkok. The Alliance International Medical Centre’s Opening Hours are Monday to Saturday 08:00 to 20:00. You can call customer service on 021 513 095 or fax on 021 513 096. To make an enquiry or find out about doctors’ timetables send an email to info@aimclao.com.  The centre is located at the Honda New Chip Xeng Centre on Souphanouvong Rd, Wattaiyai Thong, Sikhottabong District, Vientiane Capital.

    My son went today for a general check up and to get a booster vaccine … I called before and made an appointment. When arriving there, everyone was informed and within 45 minutes everything had been done, general check up, X-ray, taking blood etc etc. My son was asked to return to the clinic after 2 hours to collect the results. Going back to AIMC, a Thai lady doctor, explained in perfect English the results of each examination …. we were impressed by the professional service offered by AIMC and its staff.
    The general check up (for people below 30) was Kip 580,000

    My first experience was last month after coming down with something quite nasty after a foray into the “backcountry” unexpectedly turned sour. Upon entry, I was greeted, asses ed, given the relevant paperwork, and then led upstairs. I was given a battery of tests, completed in <1 hour. Results were positive for stage 1 Typhoid. I was given an injection and a regimen of oral antibiotics. Well in 4 days. Everything was extremely pro, easily explained in English, and exactly what I would expect from a small clinic back home. Our 2nd visit, for the wife, was exactly the same, minus Typhoid. 2 thumbs up, 5 stars all around. A very positive experience!

    I visited with a friend who fell ill when visiting me. The staff were professional and all spoke English, the facilities are immaculate, the service was excellent. I suspect that there was nothing wrong with my friend except some dehydration. The staff gave him some anti-anxiety medication and sent him home (after his vital signs were stable- his blood pressure was off when we first came in). I am not sure whether the anti-anxiety medication was just to appease foreigners who maybe sometimes want a “fix” even if it is not doing anything. At any rate, he didn’t take them and, as I suspected would be the case, was fine the next day.

    I recently had an operation which requires me to have dressing’s changed daily.
    The staff are FANTASTIC! I couldn’t speak more highly of them all.
    The place is very clean and professional. I would recommend this clinic to anyone…
    I would advise though that if it’s something specific you need seeing to, to call ahead and make an appointed with the relevant doctor.

    By far the best medical centre in VTE.

    Have used them many times for myself, wife and 3 young children. Great service, direct billing and good English from all staff.

    Modern and friendly environment too.

    Highly recommend.

    PLEASE ADVISE IF YOUR CLINIC ACCEPT BUPA INTERNATIONAL MEDICAL INSURANCE. WE HAVE SEVERAL GROUPS OF EXPATS WHO ARE BUPA POLICY HOLDERS AND ARE LONG TERM RESIDENCE OF LAOS. MOST OF US USUALLY HAVE TO GO TO BKK FOR OUR MEDICAL TREATMENT BECAUSE THE HOSPITALS IN NONG KHAI & UDORN DON’T ACCEPT BUPA .
