Cleveland Clinic for starters.

They get many patients from all over the World, and it is good enough for many heads of several Middles East Countries.

There are many hospitals around the country that are the best in their field. Hospitals accept everyone, no matter where you're from.

John Hopkins in Baltimore is well known and very good in many fields. Bellevue Hospital in NYC has been known for good heart and mental health research. University of Virginia Charlottesville does a lot of transplants.

It really depends on what you need treated.

We're lucky here in Northeast Ohio. We have two excellent hospital systems, in the Cleveland Clinic and University Hospitals. The former is world class in almost everything, and the latter is outstanding, especially it's Rainbow Babies and Children's Hospital. You can't beat that.

Quoting United Airline (Thread starter):

No, quite a few of them are public ones, collecting property taxes etc to help support them. San Francisco General, LA County Hospital, Maricopa County Medical Center, are just some of the publicly financed hospitals.

Quoting ArmitageShanks (Reply 3):

Very true, some of the best trauma units are found in public hospitals, whereas some of the public university hospitals might be on the cutting edge of some types of medical procedures.

Hospitals in the states are very expensive, compared to overseas. Reading in a article on the AARP web site, appears more Americans are going overseas for medical care/surgery just because of the cost.

What kind of treatment/specialist are you looking for? If you can narrow it down (ie cardiovascular, neuro, etc) then it'd be easier to point you in the right direction.

Incorrect. There are many hospitals that are city/county/state owned.

The Mayo Clinic is in Rochester, which is about 70 miles southeast of the Twin Cities.

Most metropolitan areas have at least one major public hospital, and most of them are quite good in a least a few specialities.

The Steadman-Hawkins Clinic in Vail is very famous when it comes to sports medicine. Many Bundesliga pros let their surgery do there but also many more athletes like tennis, ski, boxing, etc. pros. My parents were close to sending me there, too when I had a rupture of the meniscus a few years ago, but fortunately was my injury not as bad as they thought at first so they fixed it here in Germany.

Maybe you could be a little more specific in what field you are really looking.

Besides if you need to be something done maybe you should check Australia first.
Quality and expertise are on a similar level and i bet you it will be cheaper.

The legendary Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center in NYC is the ultimate place to hang out if you have cancer. Something else you might want to check out is the luxury factor. While Lenox Hill in NYC is known as the 'Country Club', other hospitals have their own attractions - the Hospital for Special Surgery has gourmet food, and Mt Sinai has great VIP rooms with Piano and all. These things matter when you are sick...
