Businessweek created a slideshow depicting the best countries for healthcare. According to Businessweek:

Among seven nations surveyed, the U.S. ranks lowest in patient satisfaction with overall medical care

30% of U.S. respondents said that they had to pay more than $1000 in out-of-pocket medical costs last year, while 1/3 of those surveyed from the U.S. said that the healthcare system needs to be completely revamped.
