7 Massachusetts Hospitals Named ‘World’s Best’

Massachusetts General Hospital was ranked among the top 10 in the world in Newsweek’s 2019 rankings of more than 1,000 hospitals.

Seven Massachusetts hospitals were ranked in a new list from Newsweek of the best hospitals in the world, including Massachusetts General, which made the top 10. The magazine’s “World’s Best Hospitals 2019” survey was created in partnership with Statista, a global market research and consumer data company. According to Newsweek, 1,000 hospitals from around the world were selected for the list “based on recommendations from medical professionals, patient survey results and medical performance indicators.”

Among the top 10 hospitals in the world, four were in the United States:

Mayo Clinic-Rochester; Rochester, Minnesota (1)
Cleveland Clinic; Cleveland, Ohio (2)
The Johns Hopkins Hospitals; Baltimore, Maryland (4)

 In addition to the global rankings, which ranked the top 10 hospitals in the world and listed 90 other hospitals in alphabetical order, Newsweek also ranked the best hospitals by country. The magazine explained that the scores awarded to each hospital are only comparable to hospitals in the same country.
