Healthcare in Los Angeles

Healthcare in Los Angeles is particularly advanced and the city is home to some of the best hospitals in the USA. Such high-quality care, however, is not without a price – services are extremely expensive, so it's vital that expats invest in comprehensive private insurance to get the best treatment.

California is known for being health-conscious and many trendy diets and health fads find their start in Los Angeles. It follows that the city is a centre for alternative and homoeopathic medical treatment, an area that is becoming more widely accepted and increasingly popular, especially in the forward-thinking state of California. In the same vein, but on the other side of the spectrum, such an image-conscious city has cultivated a thriving plastic surgery environment.

Pharmacies are widely available in Los Angeles, some of which are open 24 hours a day.
