Expats moving to Rotterdam can rest assured that the Netherlands is credited with having one of the best healthcare systems in Europe. The city is home to Erasmus University Medical Center, one of the most prominent academic hospitals in the Netherlands, so those relocating to Rotterdam will have access to excellent healthcare facilities and highly qualified medical professionals. However, it is important to do some research and invest in the right health insurance policy before arriving in the Netherlands. 

EU citizens can use their European Health Insurance Card (EHIC) to access state healthcare here during a short-term visit. UK citizens can make use of their Global Health Insurance Card (GHIC), which replaced the EHIC for UK citizens post-Brexit.

Most medical staff at hospitals in Rotterdam speak good English so expats should not have too much of an issue when it comes to communication.

Here is a list of prominent hospitals in Rotterdam.
