There are many New York City hospitals – some much better than others – but the sheer number ensures expats can find top-notch healthcare in the cosmopolitan centre. In general, large teaching hospitals provide the best healthcare in New York City.

Due to the presence of so many facilities, some hospitals and clinics have become heavily specialised, with their areas of expertise ranging from pediatrics to joint disorders. Healthcare institutions are also quite competitive, which has created a standard that ensures patients benefit from more modern facilities and the most up-to-date techniques.

Pharmacies are widely available in New York. They can easily be found in any mall, supermarket or main shopping street. Many pharmacies in New York are open 24/7. 

Private insurance is necessary for the best healthcare in any hospital, and although emergency services will never be legally denied if patients do not have insurance, hefty fees do accompany treatment. Long-term healthcare can be refused to those without proper medical insurance. Therefore, expats moving to New York City must ensure they have an adequate health insurance policy so they can have access to the right treatment if and when they need it.
