Specific to emergencies only where time is of the essence, it really depends where you live. If you happen to live within a few minutes of Shanghai United, then sure, that would be a place you could go.
But if you don’t, which would include a majority of us, its best to find out where the closest University hospital is located and go there. If you are bleeding out, having a heart attack, etc, this will be your best choice. Don’t let yourself fall victim to newbie stereotypes.
A few months ago I was having serious chest pains and thought I would try Shanghai United. I live in Xujiahui and it took me 28 minutes to get there. I know because I timed it. I won’t say anymore other than it was not an experience that instilled confidence in me. They also are having insurance issues because they over bill etc, so you will start seeing many of the insurance carriers dropping them just as happened in Beijing several years ago.
I have hear personal in-patient and outpatient experience at Zhongshan, Renji and Huashan hospitals and have found Zhonshan to be very good.
Point is, save your life and part of doing that is getting medical care ASAP.
