Austria is known for its great quality of life - including an extensive social system with public health insurance. But what are the best hospitals in the country?


A new ranking published by the US news magazine Newsweek and data provider Statista has shown the best hospitals in the world - and Austrian hospitals were featured in the list.

The ranking analysed 2,400 hospitals from 30 countries. 

The ranking was based upon a combination of four different data sources: the opinion of over 85,000 healthcare professionals worldwide, patient experience surveys following hospitalisation, publicly available hospital quality metrics, and patient outcome questionnaires. 

The Mayo Clinic in Rochester (USA), the Cleveland Clinic (USA) and the Toronto General - University Health Network (Canada) are the best hospitals in the world. The best hospital in Europe is Charité - Universitätsmedizin Berlin (Germany), in sixth place.
