Health facilities or health care facilities are places that provide health care. That include hospitals, clinics, outpatient care centers, and specialized care centers.
When you choose a health facility, you might want to consider:
- How close it is to where you live or work
- Whether your health insurance will pay for services there
- Whether your health care provider can treat you there
- The quality of the facility
Quality is important. One way to learn about the quality of a facility is to look at report cards developed by federal, state, and consumer groups.
