US well-represented in “World’s Best Hospital” rankings

Editor's Note

American hospitals fared well in Newsweek’s 2024 "World's Best Hospital" list, Becker’s Hospital Review reported February 28, noting that 43 candidates from the United States made the list of 250. Four US hospitals ranked in the top 10, a group singled out specifically for innovative use of artificial intelligence to advance medical discoveries.

Compiled in partnership with Statista, this year’s list was narrowed from data on 2,400 hospitals across 30 countries, including the United States, most of Western Europe, 10 countries in Asia, Australia, and—for the first time since the list’s inception in 2019—Chile and Malaysia. Scores are based on an online survey of more than 85,000 medical experts and public data from patient satisfaction surveys. Evaluated metrics include hygiene, patient/doctor ratio, and the use of Patient Reported Outcome Measures.
