Budapest's Top Five Hospitals You Should Know About

September 29, 2020
What is Budapest known for? Being a beautiful city? The startling Danube River? Being in the title of that quirky Wes Anderson movie? The truth of the matter is, if you haven't been to Budapest, you won't really know the Hungarian capital is really like. You won't know its essence, its character, and just how easy life here can really be. For one thing, you probably didn't know that Budapest is home to many great hospitals, did you? You were so entranced by the castles here that you overlooked the fact there are several well-respected medical institutions here. And here's a handful you need to know about!

Budapest's Top Five Hospitals You Should Know About


Károlyi Sándor Hospital 

The Károlyi Sándor Hospital is as standard as one can get and that's not necessarily a bad thing. Sure, they don't have a specific specialty unlike in other hospitals but that doesn't mean they fall short in providing excellent medical service. At least here, you can get surgery on any part of your body and you're sure to recuperate as fast and as best as you can. This is thanks in large part to the hospital's prominent rehabilitation center. They've made their space as comfortable and as peaceful as they can in order to improve the conditions of their many patients. 


National Institute for Accident and Emergency

Located in Józsefváros, the eight of Budapest's many districts, the National Institute for Accident and Emergency stays true to its name. If you're ever in the Hungarian capital, you'd do well in hanging around in this area because the moment something happens to you, at least you'll be near the hospital that can respond quickly and effectively. It is their specialty after all. With their state-of-the-art equipment and fine facilities, no matter what happens to you, this hospital will ensure you'll be fine. Let's just hope your health insurance in Hungary can cover all the costs!
