Best Hospitals – Spain

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. —
