"Healthcare services in Panama City are provided by both public and private institutions.

Private healthcare services are also available, and are generally of a higher quality than public services. These services are provided by a variety of hospitals, clinics, and other medical facilities. In addition, there are a number of specialized medical centers that offer specialized treatments and services. The city also has a number of pharmacies, which provide medications and other medical supplies," wrote a member who made the move to Panama City, Panama.
"Private hospital will do it like Pacificasalud or San Fernando. I had a Spontaneous Pneumothorax and my surgeon (an open heart surgeon) did the surgery by removing a "bulla" from my right lung so yes they have the same expertise as the USA. San Fernando is cheaper than Pacificasalud and my surgeon work at both hospitals. They also offer the surgery in Public (Santo Tomas) but I had to wait three weeks and could not wait that long so my surgery was done in San Fernando. Surgery went A1 with great follow-up," explained one expat living in Panama City, Panama.
