Ho Chi Minh City has a range of hospitals and the standards of healthcare in private hospitals are generally on par with those in Western countries. However, with cheap and relatively short flights to Bangkok and Singapore readily available, many expats prefer hospitals in these destinations for more serious medical concerns. For this reason, health insurance is recommended.
Larger hospitals will have English-speaking staff and many have foreign doctors from countries such as France, Japan, South Korea and the US.
Below is a list of recommended hospitals in Ho Chi Minh City.
