What are medical services in Florence like?

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

"I have experienced both the private and public healthcare systems in Florence and the level of care is very similar to what I used to have in Canada. The private system is pay for treatment, but the costs are reasonable," said one expat living in Florence.

"The cost and quality of healthcare options in Italy is a primary reason why I will likely obtain residency and retire," mentioned another expat in Florence.
