What is the Global Hospital Rating?

Statista and Newsweek are proud to introduce the Global Hospital Rating: a comprehensive hospital benchmarking system, created to offer an overview of a hospital’s strengths across five quality dimensions. The quality dimensions are provision and timeliness of care, patient experience and safety, IT and healthcare technology, as well as employer attractiveness.

The rating process is based on a comprehensive survey that participating hospitals submit directly to Statista. The submitted data undergoes a thorough evaluation and validation by the Statista Team. After the evaluation is completed, hospitals meeting the criteria are awarded a rating ranging from 1 to 5 stars.

All rated hospitals are featured on both the Statista website and

More Information

Be Part of it

Why should my hospital participate?

By participating in the Global Hospital Rating, your hospital will be rated across five quality dimensions and will receive an overall star rating of 1-5 stars as well as 1-5 stars for each rated category. Thus, your hospital’s strengths and areas of improvement will be identified within each category, signaling the quality criteria your hospital meets to patients and potential talent.

The Global Hospital Rating is valid for a period of 2 to 3 years and can be renewed by future evaluations.

Global Hospital Rating vs. World’s Best Hospitals Ranking

What are the differences?

Global Hospital Rating

Recognizes general hospitals around the globe via a rating system

  • To participate in the Global Hospital Rating, hospitals can apply for evaluation here.
  • To receive a rating, the hospital submits data via a survey that consists of five categories relevant to the provision of healthcare services and attractiveness as an employer.
  • After the submitted data has been validated, the data is evaluated, and the hospital receives a rating of 1 to 5 stars.
  • The rating is valid for a period of 2-3 years with yearly checkpoints along the way.
  • The rating can be renewed by future evaluations.

World’s Best Hospital Ranking

Top Hospitals ranked in 30 countries

  • To be included in World’s Best Hospitals, registration is not necessary.
  • The ranking is a comparison between top hospitals in each country. It is based on recommendations from medical professionals, publicly available hospital quality metrics, patient satisfaction data, and a voluntary Patient Reported Outcome Measures implementation survey.
  • Hospitals can sign up to receive the invitation to the voluntary Patient Record Outcome Measures implementation survey here.
  • A scoring model is used to calculate the overall hospital score, which determines the rank of the hospital receiving the award.

Please note: The Global Hospital Rating does not influence the World’s Best Hospitals Ranking position.

Frequently Asked Questions

Everything you should know

Is there an application fee?
Yes, there is an application fee of 475€. The application fee covers the evaluation process and does not guarantee a star rating. If requirements for at least 1 star are not met, the fee will be refunded.
Is there a fee for the rating process?
The rating process itself is free of charge. However, should your hospital receive a global hospital rating between 3-5 stars, you will be required to pay a licensing fee for the logo to be displayed for the eligibility period. If your hospital receives a lower rating or no rating, the charge is not applicable.
Who is eligible to participate?
All general hospitals are eligible to apply for the Global Hospital Rating.

General hospital: A hospital which is not specialized in a specific form of care. These typically treat several kinds of diseases, conditions, and injuries. Furthermore, they typically have an emergency department or trauma center, treating acute, immediate, and urgent threats to health.

Specialized hospital: Hospitals which are primarily dedicated to one or few related medical specialties and/or focus treatment for a singular patient population (e.g. children’s hospitals, women’s hospitals).

When is the registration deadline?
There is no deadline - applications are processed in the order they are received.
On what criteria is the result of the Global Hospital Rating determined?
To receive a Global Hospital Rating, hospitals must meet pre-defined criteria from five categories: Provision of care, timeliness of care, patient experience and safety, IT and healthcare technology, and employer attractiveness.
How will Statista calculate the ratings of the hospital?
The rating is based on a star system. All submitted data is analyzed and evaluated by the Statista Team. Hospitals are evaluated in five categories and receive a rating of between 1 and 5 stars, depending on their level of performance in the five categories. The established categories reflect commonly measured criteria in hospital quality metrics which are indicative of hospital performance. Should the criteria not be met in all five categories, the star rating will not be given.

Terms and Conditions are subject to change. Newsweek and Statista retain the right to modify the criteria and/or produce new criteria at any point in the project’s lifetime.
