HARTFORD, Conn. (April 4, 2021) – Saint Francis Hospital has been recognized on Newsweek’s list of World’s Best Hospitals 2022. This prestigious award is presented by Newsweek and Statista, Inc., the world-leading statistics portal and industry ranking provider. The awards list can currently be viewed on Newsweek’s website.

“We are extremely honored to have once again been named one of Newsweek’s World’s Best Hospitals,” said Thomas Burke, BPharm, MBA, President of Saint Francis Hospital. “I am proud of the hard work done by our physicians, nurses, clinical, and non-clinical colleagues which positions Saint Francis among the best of the best. Being named a World’s Best Hospital is a tangible representation of our commitment to providing top quality care and living our Mission every day.”

Saint Francis was ranked 158 out of 414 hospitals in the United States and performed “above average” in infection prevention measures. Saint Francis was one of just four Connecticut hospitals on the list. To be included on the list, hospitals must stand out for consistent excellence, including distinguished physicians, top-notch nursing care, and state-of-the-art technology.

Newsweek and Statista developed a complex methodology to ensure the quality and validity of the ranking. Three data sources were used for the evaluation:

  • Hospital recommendations from peers: an international online survey that included more than 74,000 doctors, hospital managers, and health care professionals.
  • Patient experience: surveys measuring patient satisfaction with hospitals.
  • Medical KPIs: patient safety, hygiene measures, and quality of treatment.

The World’s Best Hospitals 2022 recognizes the best medical institutions across 27 countries: USA, Australia, Austria, Belgium, Brazil, Canada, Colombia, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, India, Israel, Italy, Japan, Mexico, Norway, Saudi Arabia, Singapore, South Korea, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Thailand, the Netherlands, the United Arab Emirates, and the United Kingdom.
