Toronto General Hospital has ranked fourth in the global ranking of top hospitals conducted by Newsweek and Statistica. This is the second consecutive year the 202-year-old hospital achieved this ranking, besting 2000 other facilities from 25 countries. Rochester’s Mayo Clinic topped the list, followed by Cleveland Clinic and Massachusetts General Hospital.
Part of the University Health Network, Toronto General is Canada’s largest teaching and research hospital.
“We’re so happy for our colleagues at Toronto General Hospital,” the UHN said in a statement. “And all of UHN for this tremendous recognition, and are inspired by the work they do every day.”
Three other Canadian hospitals also made the cut: Sunnybrook, Mount Sinai, and North York General, which placed 26th, 30th, and 59th, respectively.
With these global rankings, we see facilities receive a lot of applauds, but how often does the inpatient experience measure up to these titles?
