The Best Hospitals and Healthcare in Shanghai
Shanghai United Family Hospital
Admittedly this hospital does tend to charge higher rates, but that is because you are guaranteed the highest levels of care and treatment. With four locations in Shanghai including the main hospital in Changning District and a dental facility there as well, and smaller clinics in Minhang District and Pudong New Area, District, whatever your location in Shanghai there should be a branch relatively nearby. Offering a wide range of treatments including specific dental and paediatrics, and with many medical staff who have studied in the US or Europe and have a good grip of English and other languages, it may well be worth paying a premium for such high quality services.
