The BCN ranks second in terms of residents with private health insurance, and there are 14 hospitals and clinics spread out among the three barrios. In terms of education, Belgrano has 28 public schools and 112 private schools; Colegiales has 18 public/44 private and Nunez has 17 public/35 private. 64,000 students attend classes in these 254 schools which means the average BCN school has around 250 students.
