Newsweek’s 2024 World’s Best Hospitals: Methodology

The 2024 Newsweek ranking includes the best hospitals from 30 countries including USA, Germany, Japan, France, Italy, the UK, South Korea, Brazil, India, Spain, and more. Factors such as standard of living, life expectancy, population size, number of hospitals, and data availability were taken into account. Notably, this year’s edition has witnessed significant changes with a global board of renowned experts supporting the ongoing development of the ranking methodology.

Data Used for Hospital Rankings

The Newsweek list is based on four data sources:

  • Medical Experts’ Recommendations: An online survey including tens of thousands of doctors, healthcare professionals, and hospital managers from 30 countries.
  • Patient Survey Results: A survey on patient satisfaction with hospital services.
  • Hospital Quality Metrics: Indicators such as data on quality of care for treatments, hygiene measures, patient safety, and waiting times.
  • PROMs Implementation Survey: An optional online survey on the implementation and use of Patient-Reported Outcome Measures (PROMs) in hospitals.

Based on these four pillars and their respective weights, a final score is calculated for each hospital. The complete list can be viewed on the Newsweek’s World’s Best Hospitals 2024 webpage.
