How are healthcare services Quito?

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

"Go to the best hospital instead of the government hospital. Use the private clinics for basic healthcare and pay out of pocket," remarked one expat living in Quito.

"Quito offers a wide range of healthcare services, including both public and private hospitals and clinics. The public healthcare system is funded by the government and provides free or low-cost services to citizens. Private healthcare facilities offer more specialized services and are often more expensive. Both public and private facilities offer general medical care, emergency services, and specialized care such as obstetrics and gynecology, pediatrics, and cardiology. Additionally, there are a number of pharmacies in Quito that provide over-the-counter medications and other health-related products," said one expat living in Quito.
