Cleveland Clinic is ranked as the No. 2 hospital in the world again by Newsweek’s World’s Best Hospitals 2022 list.

Cleveland Clinic Abu Dhabi, Cleveland Clinic Fairview Hospital and Cleveland Clinic Florida are also recognized among the Top 250 hospitals in the world.

The rankings are based on surveys and data from more than 2,200 hospitals in 27 countries.

“(W)hat has set the world’s leading hospitals apart is their continued ability to deliver the highest-quality patient care and conduct critical medical research even as they focused on battling COVID,” said Newsweek Global Editor in Chief Nancy Cooper. “Indeed, as the fourth annual ranking of the World’s Best Hospitals by Newsweek and Statista shows, consistency in excellence is the hallmark of these institutions …”

Newsweek also ranked six Cleveland Clinic locations among the best hospitals in the United States:

  • Cleveland Clinic – 2
  • Cleveland Clinic Fairview Hospital – 38
  • Cleveland Clinic Florida-Weston – 45
  • Cleveland Clinic Akron General Hospital – 86
  • Cleveland Clinic Hillcrest Hospital – 125
  • Cleveland Clinic Avon Hospital – 312

The rankings are based on three data sources: online surveys of more than 80,0000 medical experts from around the world; results from publicly available patient experience surveys; and medical key performance indicators, including patient safety, infection prevention measures, and doctor-to-patient ratios.

In another Newsweek ranking of specialized hospitals released last September, Cleveland Clinic is rated as the No. 2 hospital in the world for specialized care and the No.1 hospital in the world for cardiac surgery. Cleveland Clinic ranked among the world’s best in all 10 Newsweek categories — cardiac surgery, cardiology, endocrinology, gastroenterology, neurology, neurosurgery, oncology, orthopedics, pediatrics and pulmonology. In addition to Cleveland Clinic’s main campus hospital, Cleveland Clinic Florida and Cleveland Clinic Fairview Hospital also are recognized among the world’s best specialized hospitals.
