Hospitals in Hong Kong
With one of the most modern and efficient healthcare systems in the world, you can rest-assured knowing that there are a plethora of world-class medical facilities to choose from in the populous city of Hong Kong.
There are a number of public and private hospitals (view a list of top hospitals in Hong Kong) conveniently located in Hong Kong’s various districts. While both types offer high standards of healthcare, many opt for private treatment to enjoy the shorter waiting times and superior comfort provided by these facilities.
Demand is high for private care, but fees charged in these facilities are ranked second most expensive after the USA, with 1st class in-patient care easily setting you back by HK $5,640 per day. Mishaps that require medical care can happen to anyone, so it is highly advised that you secure hospital insurance to offset the high costs of hospital care in Hong Kong.
