What are medical services in Curitiba like?

Answer this Question

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

"Medical services in Curitiba, are generally of good quality, with a mix of public and private healthcare facilities available. The city has numerous hospitals, clinics, and medical centers, many of which are equipped with modern technology and staffed by well-trained professionals. Public healthcare is provided through the Brazilian Unified Health System (SUS), which offers free medical care to all citizens, including emergency services, primary care, and specialized treatments. However, public hospitals can be overcrowded, and waiting times for non-emergency treatments may be long. Many residents and expats opt for private healthcare, which offers faster access to medical services and a wider range of specialists. Private hospitals and clinics in Curitiba are known for their high standards of care and modern facilities, but they can be expensive for those without private health insurance. Overall, Curitiba's medical services are considered reliable and accessible, but the quality of care may vary depending on whether one uses public or private healthcare facilities," said another expat in Curitiba, Brazil.
