Health Care in Milan: Locate providers, hospitals, and medical centers to find the best health services available for expats and nomads.
|-Health Care in Milan

Milan has a public and private healthcare system. The public healthcare system is called Servizio Sanitario Nazionale (SSN) and is used by both Italian citizens and foreigners. People generally recommend using public hospitals in Milan for serious medical emergencies and major surgery. Public hospitals in Milan are typically crowded and have long wait times, but the quality of care is generally good. Foreigners, including expats and digital nomads, are allowed to use the public healthcare system in Italy. However, many expats choose to use private hospitals for serious medical emergencies and major surgery due to shorter wait times and more personalized care. Private hospitals in Milan are typically more modern and offer a higher quality of care than public hospitals.
