The healthcare sector is one of the biggest employers in Seattle and the city has a high concentration of doctors. Seattle is home to some of the leading medical research facilities in the USA, including the Seattle Children’s Hospital and the Swedish Medical Center. However, the standard of healthcare provision does vary throughout the city.
The Seattle city government is taking steps to address these disparities but expats should make sure they are covered by a comprehensive health insurance plan so they have access to the best healthcare in Seattle.
Pharmacies are readily available throughout Seattle and many operate 24 hours a day.
