Hospitals – "Spital, Krankenhaus"
If you have private cover, you can go to any hospital. Public hospitals do also treat private patients. In general, they deal better with emergencies. Just keep in mind: public hospitals in Austria are to the best standards.

The following list of emergency departments of public hospitals (Notfall- or Aufnahmestation) is based on my own and my patients´ experience. There are other hospitals that provide good medical care.
