Healthcare in Berlin

Expats can expect not only a high standard of healthcare in Berlin but also a culture created around the idea of healthy living.

The city and its surrounding state is considered a leading health region in Europe and forms Germany's largest centre of medical activity. Expats will find a range of services available, from basic care and high-end medicine to prevention and rehabilitation.

Berlin has a rich history steeped in scientific research and pharmaceutical brands such as Bayer, Pfizer and Berlin-Chemie have labs and production facilities in the area. More than 150 companies based in Berlin manufacture cutting-edge medical equipment such as CT scanners, X-ray and laser machines.

As a result, local hospitals certainly appease international standards and, in many cases, set the precedent themselves. Expats with specific concerns will be relieved to find that there are numerous hospitals in Berlin available for specialised treatment.

The Charité Hospital has an exemplary reputation, as does the Max Delbrück Centrum and the German Heart Centre. Sankt Gertrauden Hospital is well known for its focus as an Ear, Nose and Throat (ENT) and Breast Centre; Waldfriede Hospital for its gynaecology, obstetrics and diabetology; and the Westend Klinik of the German Red Cross for paediatric, neurology and radial therapy services.
