Healthcare in Philadelphia

With the number of medical schools, hospitals and medical research centres in the city, expats in need of world-class healthcare in Philadelphia will have plenty of options. Many of the hospitals in Philadelphia are nationally ranked for at least one speciality, while some are nationally renowned. 

Medical care in the US is expensive, however, and non-emergency care can legally be denied to a patient if they aren't able to pay. For this reason, expats moving to Philadelphia should ensure that they have a comprehensive healthcare plan to have access to the city’s best medical facilities.

Below is a list of some of the most prominent hospitals in Philadelphia.
