It boasts the immense medical center that offers top-notch care at its 13 hospitals, but also has a higher ratio of uninsured patients than any major U.S. city: about 30 percent. To match feature USA-HEALTHCARE/TEXAS REUTERS/Jessica Rinaldi (UNITED STATES SOCIETY HEALTH POLITICS)

Medical records clerks work in Clinica Sierra Vista's East Bakersfield Community Health Center in Bakersfield, California October 20, 2009. Nowhere in the United States has more doctors at its beck and call than White Plains, one of the wealthiest cities in the nation. Nearly 3,000 miles (4,830 km) away, scaring up a doctor in Bakersfield, situated in California's economically battered Central Valley, is a lot harder. In fact, White Plains has more than twice the number of doctors per capita as Bakersfield, where needy patients until recently had to take a 2-hour bus trip to Fresno to see a diabetes treatment specialist.
