According to Newsweek, these rankings are provided to help patients and their loved ones “know which hospitals or state-of-the-art facilities have the most accomplished physicians and offer the highest level of care.” Developed in partnership with global data research firm Statista Inc., Newsweek invited over 40,000 medical experts (medical doctors, health care professionals, hospital managers, and directors) in more than 20 countries to an online survey. Participants were asked to recommend and rank hospitals based on their expertise in one primary medical field and were able to choose an optional secondary area of expertise. Results were compiled, weighted, ranked, and then validated by an international board of experts.

The Mount Sinai Hospital is the flagship hospital of the Mount Sinai Health System, one of the nation’s leading health care systems, comprising eight hospitals, an award-winning medical and graduate school, and a large network of ambulatory centers and practices.
