In case of a medical emergency........
here's the advice from the Australian consulate in Bali.
It lists all the hospitals, but doesn't pass judgement - well, not directly. There are two points made by the consulate which you should consider: They say public hospital doctors also have private practices or lecture at university and can be difficult to contact. Later the consulate says that in the event of an emergency "it is essential that your insurance company doctor can contact the treating doctor". Given that they've already warned that public hospital doctors are difficult to contact, it might be best to go to the private hospital.
The best of the private hospitals appears to be BIMC - Bali International Medical Centre

If you find yourself in a situation requiring medical attention, always call your insurance company first. They may be aligned to a particular provider and can assist in direct payment as well as medical monitoring.
International SOS has a very good clinic very close to BIMC. I would use them before anyone else (and I have!). I used to work with International SOS and found myself as an inpatient while on business in Bali, I had absolute faith in the system and had a good understanding of what went on in the background. I was looked after by two western doctors and a western nurse, as well as local medical officers. Intl SOS is clean, they use state of the art sterilising equipment (including sometimes autoclaving for other clinics......) and have global expert medical advice on hand overseeing all medical cases that go through.
All expat catered clinics are expensive, from my experience BIMC is one of the more expensive ones and does not offer the same level of healthcare management that Intl SOS does. I also found that BIMC used questionable practices when diagnosing a patient which led to inflated pricing schedules. BIMC may have nicer rooms with private TV's and birch wood tables - but when it comes to managing a medical problem, interior design doesn't exactly count! almost 5 years ago
