Foreign and English speaking doctors in China
Looking for the best hospitals for expats and foreigners in China? You are at the right place.
Foreigners and Expats in China can choose from four different types of medical facilities. Public hospitals, also known as government-run, are the most widely available and affordable option, while their VIP and International wards polish the experience with somewhat basic level of English service. However at this article we are going to check what are the international level privately owned medical facilities in some of the largest cities in the country. If you have good China expat health insurance plan then most likely you can even get direct billing (cashless services) in those.
*list does not reflect all international and private run hospitals but probably the most popular ones in our experience. Based on our research, 81% of foreigner do get treatments in one of the following options.
**below list does not constitute to a medical advice but rather our reflection of the market on what clinics and hospitals are popular among foreigners in China
Jiahui is one of the most aggressive facilities on marketing, you probably come across their advertising on every expat related magazine or website. Are they good? Yes. Collaborating with Massachusetts general hospital, a lot of their staff are trained overseas and there is always an English speaking GP during night time, in most cases it is a foreign doctor. Hospital down in Gubei area is open 24/7 and is so far the only private place that managed to get approval and license on performing covid shots. Guangxi in the government pays out 🙂
They also have a clinic and a medical center in downtown and a bit further note respectively.

One of the oldest chains of medical facilities in Shanghai out of Singapore. At present they have 6 clinics all around Shanghai.
This is probably 2nd most active chain of medical facilities on marketing side after Jiahui. They recently even partnered with a couple of gyms in Shanghai to refer their members for annual medical check ups. Several locations conveniently located in both downtown and Pudong.
Main clinic the one above however they do have a couple of more locations across the town including Orthopedics hospital. Clinic supports direct billing with pretty much all local and international insurance companies, however other locations and a hospital not yet as they are pretty new to this world.

They also have a fully operating hospital a bit further out of downtown as well as new clinic is opening up in Gubei area. First two are all set up for direct Billings with most health insurance companies, might take a couple of months for the last one to get this in place too.
One of the most comprehensive and as a result most expensive check ups in the town. RMB 20k is not a top one, there is always room to add few more scans and get price to RMB 30k+. Clinic is conveniently located next to Kerry Center while Yosemite Hopital is also known as “the only private hospital within inner ring”, which is true. All others are between Inner and Middle rings.

United Family has been the most expensive medical facility in the whole China for decades (excluding Hong Kong). Starting from this year their Shanghai locations are going through restructuring on pricing and have already been un-labeled as high cost providers for several insurance companies. That means you can enjoy discounts on most insurance plans by excluding luxury facilities from coverage as United Family Shanghai is no longer that type of place for some. There are 4 more locations of that chain throughout the city.
