Summary: The quality of medical care in Kiev, Ukraine is generally considered to be good, though it may not be on par with the standards of care in the United States. Kiev is home to a number of hospitals and clinics, including the National Cancer Institute, the Institute of Cardiology, the Institute of Neurosurgery, the Institute of Urology, the Institute of Traumatology and Orthopedics, and the Institute of Pediatrics.

How are healthcare services Kiev?

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

"I don't know if I can give advice concerning medical centers as long as I need medical help not that often. Here I can share my experience in medical treatment in Kyiv or Kiev. For me it was necessary whether the clinic works with International insurance companies and in which way. I was suggested to pay myself and then make the reimbursement of the expenses. I was given all the necessary documents and didn't have any trouble with my insurance company," wrote one expat.

"Healthcare services in Kiev, consist of a mix of public and private medical facilities, offering various levels of care to residents and visitors. Public hospitals and clinics are funded by the government, but they often face challenges such as outdated equipment, insufficient funding, and long waiting times. On the other hand, private healthcare facilities in Kiev provide a higher standard of care, with modern equipment and well-trained medical professionals, but at a higher cost. In addition to hospitals and clinics, Kiev also has numerous pharmacies, dental clinics, and specialized medical centers catering to different health needs. Emergency medical services are available, but response times may vary depending on the location and traffic conditions. It is common for locals and expats to seek routine medical care from family doctors or general practitioners, who can refer patients to specialists if needed. While many medical professionals in Kiev speak English, language barriers can still be a challenge when seeking healthcare services. It is advisable for foreigners to have a local contact or translator to help navigate the healthcare system. Additionally, it is essential for visitors and expats to have comprehensive health insurance coverage, as medical costs can be high, especially in private facilities. Overall, healthcare services in Kiev, Ukraine, offer a range of options for patients, but the quality of care can vary significantly between public and private facilities. It is crucial for individuals to research and choose the most suitable healthcare provider based on their needs and financial capabilities," commented one expat who moved to Kiev.
