Healthy Shanghai: The Medical System

Did you know that in Shanghai there is an estimated population of 24 million people, and of those millions there are approximately 175,00 expats? With this in mind, you would think that a city so big would have an extensive medical care infrastructure, and yet many expats find the current system to be fairly limited. Illness and injuries are an inevitable part of life, and having a hospital, doctor or clinic to visit and cure your ailments is a security many wish for. However, moving to another country where the medical infrastructure is unfamiliar, can be a daunting experience, especially for those more prone to sickness and injury. In this blog we examine and recommend the top medical facilities within Shanghai, ranging from international hospitals to local Traditional Chinese medicine clinics that are expat friendly.
