These Are the 16 Best Retirement Cities in America That Have Great Healthcare

You have to consider a lot of things when you retire. If getting outside is important to you, then you want to look at the places with the best weather. When you want to minimize a fixed cost, then spending less on housing is essential. You’ll need to see the doctor, too, and a new WalletHub study shows these are the best retirement cities in America that have great health care options.

We added each city’s overall rank and its healthcare rank together. The cities with the lowest combined scores made the top 16. There are a few surprises along the way (No. 8 stands out to us), and every city in the top five made us raise our eyebrows a little.

16. Rapid City, S.D.

Combined score: 69

Population: 74,421

This city in western South Dakota is No. 42 in WalletHub’s overall ranking, and it’s lower than that for activities (No. 126) thanks in part to harsh winters, but it makes up for it with the health care. Rapids City comes in No. 27 for health care.
