Hospitals in Podgorica

Some of the government-run public hospitals are generally not up to Western European standards. If you want to get treatment quickly and have a better chance of finding English-speaking doctors, check out some of the private hospitals in the area. This is a more expensive option, but you can get travel insurance that allows you to go to public hospitals.
