According to Newsweek, in the U.S., hospitals that made the World's Best Hospitals ranking were also recognized with a Best-in-State award in their respective state. This distinction reflects the fact that these hospitals represent the best hospitals in the respective U.S. state.
This award is determined by Newsweek and Statista Inc., a global statistics portal and industry ranking provider. The awards list can be viewed on the Newsweek website.
Newsweek and Statista developed a complex methodology to ensure the quality and validity of the ranking. Three data sources were used for the evaluation: hospital recommendations from peers, patient experience, and various medical key performance indicators.
