With a growing population of over 1 million people, Mérida provides a wide range of healthcare services to meet the needs of its residents, whether surgery is required or treatment for a minor injury. The city’s healthcare facilities provide medical services to many who live on the Yucatán Peninsula. Many doctors are certified in both the United States and Mexico and many are bi-lingual.
One of the top healthcare facilities for expats in the city is Clinica de Mérida, particularly for those who live in Centro. A full-service facility, it began as a clinic and has grown to provide a wide range of services, including a center for physiotherapy, an osteoporosis center, dialysis and hemodialysis, X-ray, ultrasound, mammography, intensive care, ambulance service and many other critical services. Many of the doctors speak English and are very familiar with the needs of the expat community.
