Healthcare in Zurich

Expats will have access to high-quality healthcare in Zurich, but private health insurance is compulsory and premiums are high.

Some of the city's numerous hospitals offer specialised care and there are several world-class medical research facilities. Many doctors and dentists also work on an appointment basis out of private practices.

Pharmacies can be found in shopping streets and in the few malls throughout the city. Some pharmacies are open 24/7.
