Canadian health care in comparison:

Despite the relatively high costs of providing health care in Canada's hinterland and the high wages necessary to compete with wages in the United States, Canada spends no more than the G7 average on health care as a percent of its GDP. Most health statistics in Canada are about average for the G7, and vastly better than the world average.
This one is a really good article comparing some differences between the US and Canada as far as health care is concerned (how the two are managed, how technology plays a role, how docs and nurses fare, how income impacts health, etc)
