PROVIDENCE, R.I. - Rhode Island Hospital has been recognized as one of the world's best hospitals in Newsweek's prestigious World’s Best Hospitals 2024 ranking. This annual ranking, conducted in partnership with Statista, evaluates hospitals from around the globe and provides valuable insights for patients, families, and healthcare executives.

Rhode Island Hospital also received an Infection Prevention Award included in this ranking. The Infection Prevention Award identifies which hospitals featured on the list were above the national average based on reported measures.

The comprehensive list includes data on 2,400 hospitals across 30 countries, with each hospital's score determined by an online survey of over 85,000 medical experts and public data from post-hospitalization patient surveys. Factors such as general satisfaction, hygiene, patient/doctor ratio, and the use of Patient Reported Outcome Measures (PROMs) were also considered in the evaluation process.

"Being named among the world's best hospitals is a testament to the exceptional care and dedication of our staff," said Dean Roye, MD interim president at Rhode Island Hospital. "We are proud to be recognized for our commitment to providing high-quality healthcare to our patients."

The Newsweek-Statista rankings serve as a valuable resource for individuals and institutions seeking reliable healthcare profiles. With so much at stake, the inclusion of Rhode Island Hospital in this esteemed list highlights its commitment to delivering exceptional patient experiences and outcomes.
