Healthcare in Guangzhou
- Download our Guangzhou Schools Guide
There are quality healthcare options in Guangzhou, including several hospitals that are up to international healthcare standards. These are generally in the private sector, however, and expats tend to avoid the lower standard of care provided by public hospitals.
Doctors at private hospitals in Guangzhou often have overseas training. Most hospitals catering to expats require a registration fee for a patient to receive care. Health service fees can usually be paid over a limited period. Some hospitals have highly beneficial membership programmes.
Expats moving to Guangzhou are strongly encouraged to have insurance with a local or international insurance provider. Healthcare in China might cost less than private hospitals overseas, but it is still expensive.
It's important for account holders to confirm that their health insurance provider authorises their hospital of choice. Expats using local insurance should keep in mind that some hospitals in Guangzhou only recognise certain insurance companies. This means that to avoid the costs, expats should check whether the hospital recognises their insurance before receiving treatment.
