Mayo Clinic Ranks Number 1 World’s Best Hospital 2020

Mayo Clinic, located in Rochester, Minnesota, and inventor of the Well-Being Index, has been ranked number one among leading hospitals in 21 countries by Newsweek and global research data company Statista.

The World’s Best Hospitals 2020 ranking is the second annual authoritative list which includes the Global Top 100 Hospitals as chosen by the Board of Global Experts, an independent panel of researchers and experts in healthcare tasked with identifying the institutions that set the standard for excellent care.

Mayo Clinic in Rochester also topped the inaugural 2019 ranking based on survey responses from tens of thousands of doctors, hospital managers, and other healthcare staff along with recommendations from medical professionals, patient survey results, and medical performance indicators.

As leaders at Mayo Clinic understand, taking care of providers is just as important as taking care of patients. If clinicians are not well—mentally and physically—they cannot deliver the quality of patient care that has been recognized for so many years. To maximize the well-being of the organization and ensure the standard of excellent care, Mayo Clinic invented the Well-Being Index to measure the risk of distress among their clinicians, track the well-being of the organization, and provide their staff access to timely resources to improve mental health and wellness.

In addition to Mayo Clinic, several other world-leading organizations recognized on the World’s Best Hospitals 2020 list utilize the Well-Being Index to care for their staff’s mental health. These institutions include:

  • Toronto General (University Health Network) | Ranked #4
  • The Johns Hopkins Hospital | Ranked #6
  • The Alfred | Ranked #36
  • Weill Cornell at New York Presbyterian Hospital-Columbia and Cornell | Ranked #39
  • Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania-Penn Presbyterian | Ranked #46

Congratulations to all of the outstanding organizations featured on the World’s Best Hospitals 2020 list for the deserved recognition, especially to those which actively promote the well-being and protect the mental health of their dedicated medical professionals. May we continue to strive for excellence in healthcare for patients, providers, and all involved.
