Newsweek has released its inaugural rankings of Best Hospitals in the world. In partnership with Statista Inc, the report ranks a thousand hospitals, selected based on recommendations from medical professionals, patient survey results and medical performance indicators. Hoag was ranked #93.

The hospitals range from Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minn., which was ranked the number 1 hospital in the world; to Singapore General Hospital, which pursues clinical research and offers outstanding nursing; to the Charité hospital in Berlin, which employs more than half of Germany’s Nobel Prize winners in physiology or medicine.

The rankings use a 100-point system and take into consideration the amount of hospital beds, with a base requirement of 100 or more, and are primarily selected based on “standard of living/life expectancy, population size, number of hospitals and data availability,” as noted by Newsweek.

The researchers then collected recommendations from more than 4,000 medical experts, nationally and internationally, as well as patient survey results and data on hospital quality and hygiene. Hospitals were then divided by and ranked within their respective countries, with 226 facilities showcased on the U.S. roster.
