Thanks to the advanced system of healthcare in Qatar, expats and locals can easily access a range of high-quality public and private medical options in Doha.
Perhaps most significantly, the Hamad General Hospital in Doha's west side is a government-sponsored, state-of-the-art facility that provides free and subsidised healthcare to holders of the official Qatari Health Card. Non-holders will have to pay for routine check-ups, although service is free in the case of medical emergencies.
Close to the Hamad General Hospital is the Women's Hospital, which originally opened in 1988 to address the specialised medical needs of women in Qatar.
Rumailah Hospital specialises in convalescence, rehabilitation and treating the elderly. Close by are the National Center for Cancer Care and Research, and the Heart Hospital, which specialises in the treatment of adults with heart conditions.
