In March 2020, Newsweek released its World’s Best Hospitals list for 2020. Newsweek partnered with global data research company Statista Inc. to rank the leading hospitals in 21 countries. The updated version introduces the Board of Global Experts, an independent body that is tasked with the continuous development of the quality and scope of the project. This is the second year in a row that Newsweek has released these rankings.
The top three best hospitals included the Mayo Clinic – Rochester in Rochester, Minnesota; the Cleveland Clinic in Cleveland, Ohio; and the Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston, Massachusetts. The rankings are based on a compilation of recommendations from clinical and medical professionals, results from consumer surveys, and key medical performance indicators.
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 U.S. had the most hospitals awarded, with 300.
