Heidelberg University Hospital ranked 13th among the "World's Best Hospitals" 2023

Heidelberg University Hospital has once again been named one of the best hospitals in the world by the US magazine "Newsweek". In the fifth edition of the "World's Best Hospitals" ranking, which was compiled in cooperation between "Newsweek" and the statistics and data platform "Statista," it ranked 13th in a global comparison. The improvement by three places (16th place last year) confirms Heidelberg University Hospital's efforts to provide the best possible medical care in all areas. In Germany, Heidelberg University Hospital ranks second. 

The evaluation is based on assessments by healthcare experts, patient surveys, and key performance indicators of the hospitals, such as data on the quality of treatment and hygiene measures. Hospitals from 28 countries were compared in the ranking, including not only Germany but also the United States, Canada, England, Japan and Switzerland. A total of around 2,300 hospitals worldwide are included in the comparison. 

The goal of the study is to provide a data-driven comparison of the reputation and performance of hospitals in different countries to guide patients and families seeking the best medical care.
