A growing medical tourism destination, Mumbai provides expats with high standards of healthcare.
There are various public and private hospitals, but public facilities don't consistently meet international standards, and both local and foreign residents generally opt for private healthcare.
Private clinics are generally good, have English-speaking staff and many are part of international business groups or are linked to overseas universities. Despite medical treatment being relatively affordable, expats should still have medical insurance.
There are numerous well-stocked pharmacies, many of which operate 24 hours a day.
Below is a list of prominent private hospitals in Mumbai.
