Washington, DC, offers a high standard of healthcare, but as with all American cities, it's important to have medical insurance. Long-term care can be denied to those without proper medical insurance, although all DC hospitals are required to administer emergency care. The cost of treatment is extremely high, and without insurance, the payment of these costs falls to the individual.

Many of DC's best hospitals are teaching hospitals connected to the city's top universities. Residents of the greater metro area can also find quality medical care in the neighbouring states of Maryland and Virginia. There are also plenty of pharmacies across the city, with many open 24/7.

Below is a list of some of the most reputable hospitals in Washington, DC, and its surrounding areas.
