Facilities: a woman in white scrubs helping an older gentlemanHealth 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.
