I have to say, as someone who goes to Parkway (for myself or the kids) about 3 times a month, that they do a lot of the stuff in house.

They do x-rays in house, blood tests (the lab is on the 2nd floor, where the kids clinic is), ultrasounds, all sorts of ENT procedures, all sorts of digestive investigations.

They do not have an MRI or CT scan machine, but except for that I don’t think they ever send patients outside. And, when you do go outside for an MRI or CT scan, they send a nurse with you, who speaks English, takes care of everything, you just go in and out. And local hospitals are not able to provide the insurance papers, so the 1000 RMB you pay there is about the same as what you end up paying out of pocket at Parkway, and they take all the hassle out of it.

I am not sure about many prices, but here is what I do know:

To see a GP is costs between 400 and 1000 RMB, depending on what they do.

To see a specialist is between 600 and i think 2000, also depending on what you need.

Blood tests are not expensive at all, a couple of hundred RMB.

I had my gall bladder removed there 2 years ago, spent about 12 days in the hospital, had a bunch of tests done, and everything, including the surgery, the room, the pre and post op, all the medication cost if i remember correctly 15000 USD.

I didn’t pay anything, just footed the bill. And it was a great experience, much better than a US hospital.
