Cleveland Clinic is ranked as the No. 2 hospital in the world again by Newsweek’s World’s Best Hospitals 2023 list.

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

The rankings are based on surveys and data from more than 2,300 hospitals in 28 countries.

“The world’s best hospitals consistently attract the best people and provide the best outcomes for patients as well as the most important new therapies and research,” said Newsweek Global Editor in Chief Nancy Cooper. “Of all the hospitals in the world, relatively few can do all those things year in and year out. The best belong to a very exclusive club.”

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 Weston Hospital – 45
  • Cleveland Clinic Akron General Hospital – 87
  • Cleveland Clinic Hillcrest Hospital – 110
  • Cleveland Clinic Avon Hospital – 329

The rankings are based on four data sources: online surveys of more than 80,000 medical experts from around the world; results from publicly available patient experience surveys; hospital quality metrics; and patient reported outcome measures (PROMs), completed by patients to measure their perception of functional well-being and quality of life.

In another Newsweek ranking released in February, Cleveland Clinic ranked No. 7 among America’s best fertility clinics. In September, Newsweek rated Cleveland Clinic one of the top hospitals 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 11 Newsweek categories including eight in the Top 5 — cardiac surgery, cardiology, endocrinology, gastroenterology, neurology, neurosurgery, pulmonology and urology. Oncology, orthopedics and pediatrics were also ranked among the best in the world. In addition to Cleveland Clinic’s main campus hospital, Cleveland Clinic Akron General, Cleveland Clinic Fairview Hospital, Cleveland Clinic Florida and Cleveland Clinic Hillcrest Hospital, also are recognized among the world’s best specialized hospitals.
