1I don't think there are any international standard hospitals in Myanmar. Health in Myanmar is very poor, one reason why deaths from malaria is high. Best to have decent medical insurance so you can get to Bangkok if need be.
Having done some more research I did find this one: http://www.spa-myanmar.com/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=40&Itemid=80

3In Mandalay for Dengue I walked into the walk in centre for blood tests etc along from ET Hotel same side of road towards Nylon. but only remedy for Dengue is paracetamol and that just to to keep temp down. two visits with Dr $24 he was trained in UK as most are trained abroad. if hospitalisation needed get thee to Bangkok quick

4That seems to be more of a clinic than a hospital?
I think that the info. in Myanmar is sketchy, even though they say they are International standard does not mean they are. Hospitals vary, some in the UK I would not want to be in. What is international standard, is there one?

5A while ago, I found the following information and I'm going to take it with me. Maybe someone here posted it, I can't remember.
"Government hospitals in Myanmar have a very poor service. Most of the time, people rely on private hospitals and clinics. You can contact one of these private hospitals for book for the appointment. Most of the time, you will be charged in US dollar. The three most famous clinics in Yangon are Asia Royal Clinic (01-538055), Bahosi Medical Centre (01-212933) and Shwegondaing Specialist Center (01-542400)."

6SOS International Clinic
Australian Embassy Health Clinic (Golden Hill Tower)
If its anything serious, the above will recommend you travel to Bangkok. They can treat a lot of things, but aren't full fledged emergency services.
Pun Hlaing Hospital
Asia Royal Hospital
Shwegondaing Specialist Center (SSC)
Witoriya (Victoria) Hospital -- new, Insein Township
The 4 above have very good doctors with international training, but they are more NCD care / specialists. GPs don't really exist in urban Myanmar. If Burmese, the motto tends to be - if you can afford it you go to specialists directly.

7Good advice - thanks everyone. As I said I'm not planning on needing treatment in Myanmar but I had a procedure fairly recently so you never know...

9The SOS clinic or the Bangkok Hospital branch should both be ok, but if you are really ill, fly to Bangkok. It is wise to have med evac insurance.

10hi the Bangkok Hospital Office in Yangon IS NOT a medical service provider. they simply book appointments and recommend specialists at their hospital in Thailand... and then make you flight bookings to visit there... they do some diagnostics for oncology and hypertension-related diseases, but they are not a full fledged medical clinic or hospital, so you would not be advised to show up there with any ordinary problems.
