Need to visit a safe hospital in Bali?
Visitors to Bali don’t expect to visit a doctor or hospital but sometimes accidents happen, and you need to find one in a hurry. For most people, the key requirement is that it’s a hygienic and safe hospital In Bali, we suggest following the lead of those in the know – the local expats.
The BIMC Hospital Bali.
A BIMC hospital in Bali is where the expats go when they need to see a doctor. The BIMC hospitals have a solid reputation for being clean and professional. Both the BIMC hospitals are western owned and operated, and are well located for access from Kuta, Nusa Dua and Sanur.
BIMC Hospital Kuta
The BIMC hospital Kuta is located just across the main road from the Bali Galeria Mall on Sunset Road. It’s a huge four-storey facility with a 24 hour Accident & Emergency Centre, a 24 hour Medical Centre and the CosMedic Centre.
The 24 hour Medical Centre caters to families and offers consultation, hotel call outs, and medical check up. Pathology and pharmacy units also operate 24 hours a day.
Most importantly, they have english speaking staff so you don’t have to worry about miscommunications.
Local and imported prescription drugs are stocked at the BIMC’s pharmacy. You will pay Australian prices or more.

In the event of needing medical evacuation from Bali
The Australian Government Embassy in Indonesia states the following regarding medical evacuation from Bali.
“Medical evacuation from Bali is either by commercial aircraft or private air ambulance. Commercial aircraft medical clearances can only be made after obtaining a report from the relevant airline’s doctor to determine whether a patient is a stretcher case and/or whether an escort is needed. The Consulate General will assist in obtaining this report.
If patients are insured, and if their insurance company has agreed to cover the cost, the company will be able to make any necessary evacuation arrangements. Such arrangements include settling the hospital account, hiring an ambulance to the airport, check-in procedures, immigration processing and tarmac clearance for the ambulance.
If patients are not insured, the Consulate General can assist them to arrange their own medical evacuations. There is no charge for the Consulate’s services but the patient must pay all costs associated with the evacuation. Uninsured patients must fund their evacuation before any arrangements can be confirmed.
In some cases, a commercial airline may not be able to carry a patient, and it may be necessary to charter an air ambulance. As the costs are very high, the insurance company or individuals covering the cost will need to weigh up the necessity on the basis of advice from medical specialists.”
Travel Insurance in Bali
Our biggest piece of advice for family travel is to ALWAYS BUY TRAVEL INSURANCE. It is a small cost to pay for the comfort of knowing you are covered in the event of an emergency overseas. Most of the time, you won’t need it, but when you do, it will be the single thing that gives you peace of mind.
On our last trip to Bali, Jack got conjunctivitis so we organised a call out to the hotel. The doctor bill was $60, but the medicine was $80. A total of $140. The cost of my travel insurance – $140. That one doctor bill was equivalent to the cost of my travel insurance for all three of us. I hate to think how quickly those doctor bills could add up without it.
