Expats will have a multitude of options when it comes to both public and private healthcare in Cape Town. However, with government hospitals being largely understaffed and underfunded, most expats use Cape Town's private healthcare facilities.

Basic consultations with general practitioners are generally affordable, but costs can quickly escalate with even the slightest complication.  For this reason, it's highly recommended that expats take out private health insurance, which South Africans commonly refer to as 'medical aid'. An assortment of local and international service providers offer different schemes; some are completely comprehensive, while others provide basic hospital cover for emergencies.

Below is a list of recommended hospitals in Cape Town.
