I am deeply grateful to work with such a dedicated and exceptional group of healthcare professionals on a daily basis.”
The World’s Best Hospitals 2022 ranking lists the best hospitals in 27 countries: United States, Germany, Japan, South Korea, France, Italy, UK, Spain, Brazil, Canada, India, Australia, Mexico, The Netherlands, Austria, Thailand, Switzerland, Sweden, Belgium, Finland, Norway, Denmark, Israel, Singapore, Saudi Arabia, United Arab Emirates and Colombia. Countries were selected based on multiple comparability factors, including standard of living/life expectancy, population size, number of hospitals and data availability.
The hospitals were selected based on three sources of data:
More than 80,000 medical experts – doctors, hospital directors, healthcare professionals from 27 countries were invited to participate in the online survey. Participants were asked to recommend hospitals in their own country as well as in other countries. Referrals for a participant’s own employer/hospital were not permitted.
Patient Experience Survey Results – publicly available data from existing patient surveys were used to analyze the patient experience. Patient surveys are usually conducted by insurance companies with patients after they are hospitalized. Examples of survey topics include overall satisfaction with hospital, hospital recommendation, and satisfaction with medical care.
Medical Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) – were collected from various public sources for most countries. Key performance indicators differed from country to country. Examples of data included are the quality of care for specific treatments, data on hygiene measures and patient safety and data on the number of patients per doctor and per nurse.
According to Nancy CooperNewsweek’s global editor, “The aim of this study is to provide the best data-based comparison of reputation and performance of hospitals in any country. We hope this will be useful not only for patients and families who seek the best care for themselves and their loved ones but also to hospitals that compare to their peers during a time of unprecedented change.”
Newsweek compared scores between hospitals in the same country, as different sources of patient experience and medical performance indicators were examined in each country. The US rankings listed 414 total hospitals that participated.
