Mark,
I am not sure what information I would provide to you as you didn't post much detail. In general, Nanjing is a safe and open city like any other cities globally and you could easily meet expats, foreign friends. Traffic communication is convenient, including taxi, bus and subway, train, flight, and cheap. Eatery facilities are easy to find everywhere on city streets including western-style foods/restaurants.... Tim Hortons? not sure if you could find a location here for its fresh coffee! Rent for a residency is more expensive in downtown area but better to choose apartment close to your institution to save time during rush hours...

Thanks so much for the summary of facilities etc. in Nanjing. I know I wasn't specific but, right now, I'm facing the issue of how foreigners (Canadians especially) arrange medical benefits coverage.

those hospital may be listed on what health organizations you may need to go:

Medical staff always advise patients to have an iv even the patient only has a common cold. Say to your doctors you don't need iv.

Nanjing was one of the earliest established cities in what is now China. It is prominent place in Chinese history and culture and the capital of China. It is a beautiful place and a safe and open city like other cities. The living cost is not too high in Nanjing.
