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 barely need to search.  

The advantage of this is that there is a variety of low-cost, high-quality options. The disadvantage is that expats may have a tough time choosing a hospital in Philadelphia because there are so many options.

Many of the hospitals in Philadelphia are nationally ranked for at least one speciality, while some are nationally renowned. The Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania, for example, is nationally ranked in 11 adult specialities, while US News ranks the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia as the best of its kind in the country.

Expats moving to Philadelphia should ensure that they have a comprehensive healthcare plan to have access to the city’s best medical facilities.
