Healthcare Costa del Sol

Costa del Sol
The standard of healthcare in the South of Spain is generally considered to be excellent, with well trained medical professionals and state-of-the-art facilities. 

 

There are several large general, university and maternity hospitals in Malaga, and the Costa del Sol children’s hospital near the centre of Marbella is considered one of the leading hospitals in the world for childbirth and paediatrics by the WHO and UNICEF.

 

The Costa del Sol has many International residents from all over the world, attracted by the region’s enviable climate and healthy lifestyle. Translation services and medical interpreters can also be arranged for those who do not speak Spanish, though there is generally good access to English-speaking doctors in the Costa del Sol, with multilingual family doctors and paediatricians near most main towns in the region.

 

Costa de la Luz
The Spanish healthcare system is considered to be one of the best in the world and families in Costa de la Luz have great access to healthcare, with doctors, pediatricians and clinics in Cadiz, Huelva and most towns along the coastline. 

 

There are two large university hospitals in Cadiz, a large general hospital in Huelva and one in Tarifa, among other maternity clinics and general practitioners based throughout the region. There are also English-speaking dentists in Costa de la Luz, with practises in several towns in the local area.

 

Pregnancy services in Costa de la Luz include experienced multilingual private midwives, offering support through pregnancy then available to attend births at home and hospital births. There is also an excellent gynaecology clinic around an hour’s drive inland, in Seville, specialising in personalised women’s healthcare before and during pregnancy, and a variety of fertility treatments.

 

A number of experienced alternative therapists also practise in the region, from massage and acupuncture to nutrition and homeopathy, there are a variety of great complimentary therapies available to parents looking to optimise their family’s wellbeing. 

 

There are several highly-regarded private clinics in Marbella and Malaga specialising in fertility and maternity services, for those with private health insurance too.

 

Here is a useful list of the leading children’s hospitals, clinics and healthcare services in the Costa del Sol and Costa de la Luz. If you have a recommendation for this section please get in touch via email info@mumabroad.com
