Newsweek has released World’s Best Hospitals 2019 ranking which lists the best hospitals in 11 countries: USA, Canada, Germany, France, United Kingdom, Switzerland, South Korea, Japan, Singapore, Australia and Israel. The countries were mainly selected based on standard of living/life expectancy, population size, number of hospitals and data availability. One thousand hospitals were selected based on recommendations from medical professionals, patient survey results and medical performance indicators. The hospitals on the list are at the forefront of adapting to these new challenges while providing top-notch patient care. Every hospital in the country lists is rated by a score. Scores are only comparable between hospitals in the same country, because different sources for patient experience and medical KPIs were examined in each country. Since it was not possible to harmonize the data of these sources, cross-country comparisons of the scores is not possible. In addition to the 11 country lists, the study includes a Global Top 100 list. This list ranks the top 10 hospitals and the other 90 hospitals are sorted alphabetically.
