World's Best Hospitals 2023 - India

World's Best Hospitals 2023

These are challenging times for hospitals. COVID-19 put unprecedented stress on health systems, as have inflation and global financial uncertainty. In the U.S. and around the world, leading hospitals are dealing with rising costs, aging populations and a medical workforce exhausted from battling a global pandemic.

Among the hallmarks of great hospitals, however, are not just first-class care, first-class research and first-class innovation. The very best institutions also share another quality: consistency. The world's best hospitals consistently attract the best people and provide the best outcomes for patients as well as the most important new therapies and research. Of all the hospitals in the world, relatively few can do all those things year in and year out. The best belong to a very exclusive club.

To recognize them, Newsweek and global data firm Statista are proud to introduce our fifth annual listing of the World's Best Hospitals 2023. This year, we have ranked over 2,300 hospitals in 28 countries, including one that is new to our list, Taiwan. For the first time, we ranked all top 250 global hospitals. We have also listed the best hospitals by country; each country list also includes a listing of top specialty hospitals.

We have also made other changes. This year we have added an important new pillar to our scoring model: for the first time, hospitals were surveyed regarding their PROMs implementation status. PROMs are defined as standardized, validated questionnaires completed by patients to measure their perception of their functional well-being and quality of life. The World's Best Hospitals 2023 also includes new hospital quality metrics, most notably data from the Israeli National Program for Quality Indicators (INPQ) for Israel and the Danish Clinical Quality Program for Denmark. And we have added new accreditations for Thailand and Taiwan to the scoring model (For more details on the ranking criteria, see Methodology.)

The goal of this study is to provide a data-based comparison of hospital reputation and performance across countries. We hope this will be useful to patients and families seeking the best care for themselves and loved ones, as well as to hospitals as they benchmark themselves against their peers.

Global Board of Medical Experts:

The global board of medical experts was founded by Statista to support the World's Best Hospitals 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.

The idea behind the global board of medical experts is to create an independent body that is tasked with the continuous development of the quality and scope of the project. The global board of medical experts is therefore tasked with providing guidance and input for the continuous development and future expansions of the methodology. This includes input regarding new data sources, future methodological considerations, as well as the ongoing development of the PROMs implementation survey. The members of the global board of medical experts were carefully chosen based on their national and international expertise and decade-long experience in their respective medical fields as well as their scientific output.


The World's Best Hospitals 2023 ranking lists the best hospitals in 28 countries: U.S., Germany, Japan, South Korea, France, Italy, United Kingdom, Spain, Brazil, Canada, India, Australia, Mexico, The Netherlands, Austria, Thailand, Switzerland, Sweden, Belgium, Finland, Norway, Denmark, Israel, Singapore, Saudi Arabia, United Arab Emirates, Colombia and Taiwan. The countries were selected based on multiple comparability factors, such as standard of living/life expectancy, population size, number of hospitals and data availability.

A global board of renowned medical experts supports the continuous development of the methodology. Thus, the lists are based on four data sources:

1- Over 80,0000 medical experts (doctors, hospitals managers, health care professionals) in 28 countries were invited to participate in the online survey. Participants were asked to recommend hospitals in their own country as well as in other countries. Recommendations for own employer/ hospital were not allowed.
2- Results from patient experience surveys. Publicly available data from existing patient surveys was used to analyze patient experience. Patient surveys are typically conducted by insurance companies among patients after hospitalization. Examples of survey topics include: general satisfaction with hospital, recommendation of hospital and satisfaction with medical care.
3- Hospital quality metrics e.g., data on quality of treatment and hygiene measures. Quality metrics from a variety of public sources were collected for most countries. Quality metrics differ between the countries. Examples of included data are data on quality of care for specific treatments, data on hygiene measures and patient safety and data on number of patients per doctors and per nurse.
4- PROMs implementation survey: For the first time, a PROMs implementation score has been included in the scoring model of the World's Best Hospitals project. PROMs are defined as standardized, validated questionnaires completed by patients to measure their perception of their functional well-being and quality of life. In fall/winter of 2022, Newsweek and Statista reached out to hospitals and conducted a survey about the implementation and use of PROMs.

Scores were calculated for each hospital in each of the four categories and weighted: Peer recommendation (49% national, 5% international): patient experience (14.5%), hospital quality metrics (29%), PROMs implementation (2.5%).

Every hospital in each country 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 this data, cross-country comparisons of the scores are not possible (a score of 90 in country A doesn't necessarily mean that this hospital is better than a hospital with a score of 87 in country B).
The number of hospitals awarded in each country varies based on the number of hospitals and data availability in the respective country. The U.S. had the most hospitals awarded with 420, while Israel and Singapore were represented with 10 hospitals each. In total, more than 2,300 hospitals were ranked for this fifth edition of the ranking.
The online edition of this study includes a global top 250 list. The global top hospitals were determined by the number of international recommendations received in the survey and their national rank. The global list does not include specialized hospitals.

The rankings are comprised exclusively of hospitals that are eligible regarding the scope described in this document. The ranking is the result of an elaborate process which, due to the interval of data-collection and analysis, is a reflection of the last calendar year. Furthermore, events preceding or following the period 01/01/2022-31/12/2022 and/or pertaining to individual persons affiliated/associated to the facilities were not included in the metrics. As such, the results of this ranking should not be used as the sole source of information for future deliberations.
