Be careful and beware. I went to the Galenia Hospital Emergency room following a stroke. The hospital staff (Luis De Alba and a woman named Erica) separated my wife and I early in our visit. During the course of the first four hours, following an EKG, CT scan, MRI and sharing those results with my wife only, Luis and Érica convinced (scared actually) my wife into making three separate payments totaling $16,000 US. Not a typo, that’s three payments totaling 16,000 US dollars. We were told that the last payment of $10,000 was to cover a potentially long hospital stay. It ended up being the charge for one night’s stay (yes, $16,000 US for one night). Luis would not allow us to see an itemized bill until we paid an additional $2,034 for the second day (combined cost of $18,624 total for two days, no surgery, only IV, medications and meals). For comparison, the entire Nuerologist’s bill for the two day period, including an emergency room visit, was a total of $468 US. After payment and finally being able to review our bill, the charges were clearly back-filled to add up exactly to the $16,000 pre-paid amount (not even cleverly disguised). I was billed for diapers which were never needed or provided, entire packs of syringes along with individual syringes and a whole lot of other items that were needed to hit the $16,000 pre-payment amount. Besides paying $16,000 US for one day at Hospital Galenia, I am infuriated with the methods used to scare, intimidate and coerce my wife into making such a large pre-payment. Completely unethical. Please beware of Galenia’s emergency services.

It is joke, 30min waiting time for quote how much cost 3 x-ray pictures of my feet. And afer that time they told full payment w/o description of pictures or doctor consulting (we don't need it my husband is chirurg) 750USD ?! Is X-ray high end equipment in Mexico that you need charge so much ?

Ridiculously overpriced. Had an issue with ears, when on vacation, the visit to doctor costed 100$. Just for getting prescription for ear drops, which ultimately didn't help. Later I got better consultation for free in ahorra pharmacy. So, 100$ payed for nothing.

I was really torn on how to rate Hospital Galenia. My husband was in their ICU in March of 2017. He was hospitalized nearly a week with dehydration due to c-diff which caused his heart to go into afib and his kidneys started to shut down. The care by Dr Rafael Ruiz Orjeda, his cardiologist and nephrologist was absolutely outstanding. We have nothing but good things to say. BUT, like others, we were assured the bills would be sent to our insurance company, but we were asked to make a down payment to the hospital of just under $8000, which I was told would be reimbursed once we got home and insurance kicked in. We also had to pay all of the doctor's bills, which believe it or not after a week in the hospital (3 days of which were in ICU) were about $4200. When I paid the last doctor bill upon my husband's release, I asked what the approximate total bill was and was told around $20,000. However, a couple of months after we got home, we received a bill from a New Jersey company called Med X Global for an outstanding bill of $110,000. I initially didn't look at this closely and assumed it was in pesos. When I finally realized this was US Dollars still owed, I was shocked and furious When we finally got an itemized copy of bill it was obvious all charges had been converted to US dollars. We called Med X Global and when I told them I had asked about the total bill on the day of my husband's discharge and was told it was in the range of $20,000, their response was "they shouldn't have talked to you about this.". Galenia has obviously contracted with this New Jersey company to deal with US insurance companies and that seems to have allowed this company to bill at US pricing. It is November 2nd and as I write this review it has taken 7 months to get insurance with my husband's primary carrier resolved. They paid all but $1000 of the $110,000 bill. He has two insurances so we are submitting the remaining bill to them. But to date, we have received no reimbursement on our $8000 down payment and only received $1500 in reimbursement on doctor bills. It has been an extremely frustrating and disheartening process. Again, the care was great. Dr Rafael Ruiz and team were amazing. But it's hard not to believe that champagne bottles weren't popping on the day Med X Global provided Galenia with payment from our insurance company. My advice if you are in the hospital reading this with a loved one receiving care there: demand an itemized bill of all services at the time you are released. Don't let them say "don't worry, we will provide this to your insurance company". The sad part, the amazing doctors, are receiving payment for their hard work at minimal pricing

Dr. Alicia Benavides was excellent. Hospital nurse did not have enough experience to start an IV and left my arms black and blue both sides and never found my veins. The anesthesiologist told him to stop and he did it at the operation room with no problem.

Best place in Cancun when you are sick or need to check anything with a doctor. You find also the drugstore inside and a Santander ATM. Always be attending ver well and quick.

High quality medical attention. High prices for world class doctors. Double check your insurance coverage before registering in this hospital. Is the most expensive in town. There's even a hotel in the same building.
