How are healthcare services Mendoza?

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

"Mendoza, offers a range of healthcare services to its residents and visitors. The city has both public and private healthcare facilities, including hospitals, clinics, and specialized medical centers. Public hospitals, such as Hospital Central and Hospital Lagomaggiore, provide free or low-cost medical services to the population, including emergency care, surgeries, and maternity services. However, these facilities may experience overcrowding and long waiting times. On the other hand, private healthcare facilities in Mendoza, such as Hospital Español and Clínica de Cuyo, offer high-quality medical services with modern equipment and well-trained medical professionals. These facilities usually have shorter waiting times and offer a wider range of specialized services, such as cardiology, oncology, and orthopedics. However, private healthcare can be more expensive, and it is recommended to have private health insurance to cover the costs. In addition to hospitals and clinics, Mendoza has numerous pharmacies where residents can purchase prescription and over-the-counter medications. Many pharmacies are open 24 hours a day and offer home delivery services. Primary healthcare services are also available in Mendoza through a network of community health centers, known as Centros de Atención Primaria de la Salud (CAPS). These centers provide basic medical care, vaccinations, and health education to the local population. Overall, healthcare services in Mendoza, Argentina, are accessible and cater to various needs, but it is essential to have appropriate health insurance to ensure access to the best quality care," mentioned one expat in Mendoza.

"Remember, Argentina does not offer its Government Medical Insurance if you are a senior," commented one expat who moved to Mendoza, Argentina.
