One of the important benefits of living in San Miguel de Allende – and Mexico in general – is the significantly lower cost of healthcare. Healthcare services generally are more than 50 percent less expensive than similar services in the U.S.

Unusual for a city of its size, San Miguel has three private hospitals: Hospital Joya, Unimed and MAC.

The hospital most recommended by expats in San Miguel is Hospital Joya, formerly known as H+. The hospital provides a wide range of medical services and has a specialty medicine office building adjacent to the hospital with 21 medical offices and over 20 different medical specialties and a pharmacy. Specialty medicine offerings include the Acute and Chronic Wound Treatment Center and a Rehabilitation Center for physical therapy. Doctors are board certified and most are bi-lingual.

Dental services are also much less expensive. Well-trained dentists provide a wide range of procedures from cleaning to implants at more than 50 percent less than comparable services in the U.S. Most dentists also are bi-lingual.
