Summary: The quality of medical care in Qatar is generally considered to be very good, with many hospitals and clinics offering a wide range of services. Qatar has a number of world-class medical facilities, including the Hamad Medical Corporation, which is the largest healthcare provider in the country. In comparison to the US, Qatar has a lower number of medical professionals per capita, but the quality of care is still high. Emergency services in Qatar are generally reliable and efficient. Ambulance services are available 24 hours a day, and can be called by dialing 999. The emergency services are well-equipped and staffed with experienced medical professionals.

How are healthcare services Qatar?

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

"Qatar offers a comprehensive range of healthcare services, including primary care, specialist care, and hospital services. The public healthcare system in Qatar is managed by the Ministry of Public Health, and is available to all citizens and residents of Qatar. The public healthcare system is of a high quality, with modern facilities and well-trained staff. Foreign residents in Qatar have access to the public healthcare system, and can use it for both primary and specialist care. Expats in Qatar can use the public healthcare system by registering with a local health center and obtaining a health card. The health card allows expats to access the public healthcare system, and receive subsidized healthcare services," wrote an expat living in Qatar.

"Do not worry if your company does not provide insurance. National Health in Qatar is beyond compare. It costs QR100 for a year. When you go private they quite often refer you to National Health system as they have the best facilities. Only draw back is queuing even when you have an appointment," said an expat in Doha.
