Of all the industries on the threshold of transformation, none is more politically contentious, tightly regulated, scientifically significant or economically important than health care. Hospitals around the globe will drive—and be shaped by—much of this disruption.

Newsweek has spent the better part of nine decades covering every aspect of health care, and we are committed to helping our readers make sense of the changes sweeping this industry.

As part of that commitment, we partnered with Statista Inc., a global market research and consumer data company, to develop a groundbreaking ranking of the world's best hospitals. One thousand hospitals were selected based on recommendations from medical professionals, patient survey results and medical performance indicators. For the recommendations, Statista collaborated with GeoBlue and invited tens of thousands of doctors, hospital managers and other healthcare professionals to an online survey. The complete description of the methodology is available in this document. If your hospital is listed below, you can find out more about the licensing options visiting the Statista website.

The hospitals on this list are at the forefront of adapting to these new challenges while providing top-notch patient care. They range from the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota, with its peerless educational arm; to Singapore General Hospital, which pursues clinical research and offers outstanding nursing; to the Charité hospital in Berlin, which employs more than half of Germany's Nobel Prize winners in physiology or medicine.

How far would you go to get the best care for yourself or your family? This guide helps Newsweek readers discover the ways leading hospitals—close to home and around the world—are shaping the future of medicine.
