    He is getting treated at a hospital.

    "He is getting treated at a government or private hospital". You can say this if somebody is admitted to a hospital but can we say the same thing if somebody is not admitted at the hospital but that person goes there for regular check ups regarding a disease (like me)?

    Please check.

    Re: He is getting treated at a hospital.

    I would use either "He is getting/having treatment at ..." or "He is being treated at ...".
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
