Newsweek released the third annual World’s Best Hospitals 2021 list. To compile this list, Newsweek partnered with Statista Inc, a global data research firm.
The 2,000 hospitals named in this list covers 25 countries and these hospitals stand out for their consistent excellence, including distinguished physicians, top-notch nursing care and state-of-the-art technology.
The World’s Best Hospital ranking lists the best hospitals in 25 countries: USA, Germany, Japan, South Korea, France, Italy, United Kingdom, Spain, Brazil, Canada, India, Australia, Mexico, The Netherlands, Poland, Austria, Thailand, Switzerland, Sweden, Belgium, Finland, Norway, Denmark, Israel and Singapore. The countries were mainly selected based on standard of living/life expectancy, population size, number of hospitals and data availability.
The lists are based on three data sources:
- Recommendations from medical experts (doctors, hospitals managers, health care professionals)
- Results from patient surveys
- Medical KPIs on hospitals
The number of hospitals awarded in each country varies based on the number of hospitals and data availability in the respective country. USA had the most hospitals awarded with 350, while Israel and Singapore were represented with 10 hospitals each. In total, 2,000 hospitals were ranked in this third edition of the ranking. Every hospital in each country is rated by a score.
