World's Best Hospital 2020

Since its founding in February 1933, Newsweek has reported on advances in medicine, science and the search for good health—and good care. We know that dealing with a health crisis or a worrisome diagnosis, whether for yourself or a family member, can be overwhelming, and that knowing where to turn can lessen the stress. That's why, for the second year in a row, Newsweek partnered with global data research company Statista Inc. to rank the leading hospitals in 21 countries. This version also introduces the Board of Global Experts, an independent body that is tasked with the continuous development of the quality and scope of the project.

If you were asked to name the world's best hospitals, you might well have mentioned the Mayo Clinic, Massachusetts General and the University Hospital, Zurich. You might not have thought of the Sheba Medical Center near Tel Aviv, the Karolinska Institute in Stockholm or Singapore General. But the researchers and experts who help build this authoritative list are keenly aware of what's going on in hospitals around the globe, and they can, with confidence, identify the ones that set the standard for excellent care. The table below shows the Global Top 100 Hospitals, #1-50 are ranked based on recommendations, #51-100 are listed alphabetically. If your hospital is listed below, you can find out more about the licensing options visiting the Statista website.

We're proud to offer this ranking and hope you know that you can rely on Newsweek. —

Global Board of Medical Experts:

The global board of medical experts was founded by Statista to support the World's Best Hospital Project. The board is an independent body that is tasked with the continuous development of the quality and scope of the project. Current members of the board of experts are listed here.



Methodology:

The World's Best Hospitals 2020 ranking lists the best hospitals in 20 countries (and one city-state): United States, Canada, Germany, France, United Kingdom, Italy, Spain, Switzerland, Netherlands, Sweden, Denmark, Norway, Finland, Israel, South Korea, Japan, Singapore, India, Thailand, Australia and Brazil.

The rankings are based on recommendations from medical professionals, results from patient surveys and key medical performance indicators.

Statista, in collaboration with trusted insurance provider GeoBlue, invited tens of thousands of medical professionals in the selected countries to an online survey from September to November 2019. The survey was also promoted on Newsweek.com.

The number of awards per country varied based on the number of hospitals and data availability. The U.S. had the most hospitals awarded, with 300, and U.S. hospitals are also recognized with a best in state award.

Scores are comparable only between hospitals in the same country. The study includes a Global Top 100 list.

Specialized hospitals, like heart or cancer hospitals, are displayed in a separate list, sorted alphabetically.
