Summary: Health Care in Wuhan: Locate providers, hospitals, and medical centers to find the best health services available for expats and nomads.

The healthcare system in Wuhan is a mix of public and private hospitals and clinics. The public healthcare system is called the Chinese National Healthcare System and is used by both locals and foreigners. People generally recommend using public hospitals in Wuhan for serious medical emergencies and major surgery. Public hospitals in Wuhan are typically crowded and busy, but the quality of care is generally good. Foreigners, including expats and digital nomads, are allowed to use the public healthcare system in China. However, many expats prefer to use private hospitals for serious medical emergencies and major surgery, as they tend to be less crowded and offer more personalized care. Private hospitals in Wuhan are typically more expensive than public hospitals, but the quality of care is generally higher.
