👨‍⚕️ Newsweek put out a list of the World's Best Hospitals for 2024

👩‍⚕️ Six NJ hospitals made the list

Six New Jersey hospitals are among the world’s best, according to a report by Newsweek.

The publication teamed up with Statista for its annual ranking of 412 of the world’s best hospitals, a series that began in 2019. This year, the list includes data on 2,400 hospitals across 30 countries.

The hospitals recognized on Newsweek’s “World’s Best Hospitals 2024” list were selected based on an online survey of more than 85,000 medical experts and public data from post-hospitalization patient surveys on their general satisfaction.

The scores considered metrics like hygiene and patient/doctor ratio, as well as the standard of living/life expectancy, population size, the number of hospitals, data availability, as well as whether hospitals used Patient Reported Outcome Measures (PROM), which are standardized questionnaires completed by patients to assess their experience and results.
