Summary: The quality of medical care in Israel is generally considered to be very high, with many of the country's hospitals and medical centers being world-renowned for their excellence. In comparison to the US, Israel has a much higher rate of doctors per capita, and the country is known for its advanced medical technology and research. Emergency services in Israel are very efficient and reliable, with ambulances being dispatched quickly and arriving on the scene in a timely manner. To call for an ambulance, you can dial the emergency number, 101, or the national emergency medical service number, 106.

How are healthcare services Israel?

When we asked expats and global nomads about the quality of medical care in Israel, they replied:

"Israel has a comprehensive healthcare system that provides a wide range of services to its citizens and foreign residents. The public healthcare system is funded by the government and is of high quality. It is available to all citizens and permanent residents, regardless of their income level. Foreign residents are also eligible for public healthcare services, although they may be required to pay a fee. Expats in Israel can use the public healthcare system by registering with the Ministry of Health and obtaining a health insurance card. This card allows them to access the same services as Israeli citizens, including primary care, specialist care, hospitalization, and prescription drugs," said an expat in Israel.
