Austria – The 4th Best Healthcare System in the World

Austria ranked 4th in the Top 10 Healthcare Systems in the World in 2022.

It has a two-tier healthcare system, with basic publicly-funded medical care provided to nearly all and private healthcare available for those that want better quality or faster access.

Austria has a higher doctor-to-patient ratio than the average in Europe, giving residents more choice and lower waiting times than other countries.

Basic public healthcare includes treatment in well-equipped hospitals, basic dental care, medication and certain specialist consultations.

Whilst public healthcare is of great quality, many choose to also utilise private healthcare, for added benefits such as smaller wards and easier access to medical professionals.

Vienna – the cradle of medicine

The Vienna Medical School (shortly “Wiener Schule”) has a long history: between the second quarter of the 18th century and the second quarter of the 20th century, the most groundbreaking medical achievements came from Vienna.

Vienna’s first “modern” hospital originated around 1754, at the behest of Maria Theresia’s personal physician.
Since this time Vienna has developed into a world-class medical hub. Pioneering research projects are currently underway at the Medical University of Vienna, in the fields of cancer research, medical imaging and cardiology, neurosciences, immunology among others.

The Medical University of Vienna is one of the Europe’s most traditional medical institutions and research centers in Europe. With around 8,000 students, it is currently the largest medical university in the German-speaking world and one of the most innovative and significant research centers in Europe.

The physicians of Vienna’s private clinics are available for simple consultations, comprehensive check up programmes and complex surgical procedures.

All hospitals along with inpatient care offer rehabilitation and physiotherapy programs.
