Healthcare in New York City
Due to presence of so many facilities, some hospitals and clinics have become heavily specialised; their area of expertise can range from paediatrics to joint disorders. Healthcare institutions are also quite competitive, which has created a standard that insures patients benefit from more modern facilities and the most up to date techniques.
Private insurance is necessary for the best healthcare in any hospital, though emergency services will never be legally denied if patients do not have insurance – hefty fees do accompany treatment, however.
Long term healthcare can be refused to those without proper medical insurance.
According to New York doctors the best two hospitals are:
New York–Presbyterian Hospital
