Health Care Settings in Spain

The World Health Organization (WHO) has ranked the Spanish healthcare system as the 7th best in the world. And the Spanish people are ranked second, in regard to being satisfied with the quality of healthcare they receive. Spain has more than 750 hospitals serviced by 450,000 doctors and nurses. All of the hospitals in Spain are recognized and supervised by the Spanish Ministry of health.

Spanish doctors are trained for at least 6 to 7 years before they are qualified and can be given their degrees. Specializations, such as those required for surgeons, require additional years of study and training before the doctors are certified as licensed.

There are several health facilities in Spain, both private and state-owned, that have specialized departments catering exclusively for medical tourists. International patients can avail themselves of the services of English-speaking doctors and medical staff, who have undergone rigorous medical schooling and practical training in institutions that are recognized in the European Union and the General Medical Council in Great Britain. All of this results in bringing them on par with the rest of Western Europe.
