Washington DC offers a high standard of healthcare. However, as with all American cities, it's important to have medical insurance in Washington DC. Long-term care can be denied to those without proper medical insurance, although all DC hospitals are required to administer emergency care.

Residents of the greater metro area will also find quality medical care in the neighbouring states of Maryland and Virginia. Many of DC's best hospitals are teaching hospitals connected to the city's top universities.

There are plenty of pharmacies across the city, with many open 24/7.

Below is a list of some of the most reputable hospitals in Washington DC and its surrounding areas.
