Healthcare in China

Depending on which region you reside in, the healthcare system in China can range from very poor to excellent. While the majority of large hospitals with English-speaking staff are mainly in larger cities, traffic and air pollution are also common health concerns in China. Due to the population density in cities like Beijing, Shanghai or Guangzhou, ambulances are usually very slow. The cost of medical treatment in private hospitals can be very expensive.

There are some good hospitals in the larger cities such as Shanghai and Beijing that will have Western-trained doctors and even hospitals that are superior to what you will find in Canada or the USA. Most expats will want to seek private medical care if sick or injured. Others may wish to travel abroad to Japan or Singapore for medical care.
