The standard of healthcare in Saudi Arabia is among the best in the Middle East. Hospitals in Jeddah are no exception, with many facilities being among the region's finest.
Both public and private facilities have high standards. However, most expats prefer to use private healthcare in Jeddah. A few hospitals cater specifically to the expat community and are often staffed by expats or foreign-trained local doctors.
Private healthcare can be expensive and expats working in Jeddah are required by law to have private health insurance. Employers often cover this, and it's something that expats should discuss as part of their contract negotiations.
