Mount Sinai Hospital was selected as the third best hospital in Canada, according to a global hospital ranking by Newsweek.

Every year, Newsweek and Statista – a global market research company — rank the best hospitals from around the world based on a series of criteria including patient satisfaction, hospital quality metrics and patient outcomes.

On top of securing third spot in Canada, Mount Sinai came in spot 32 for the best hospital in the world. This year, the list includes data on 2,400 hospitals across 30 countries.

Mount Sinai Hospital, part of Sinai Health, is an academic health science centre where patients across Ontario and the entire country come to access specialized care. The hospital recently celebrated 100 years of care.

It is home to the most experienced maternal and fetal medicine team in Canada. More than 7,000 babies are delivered at Mount Sinai Hospital each year, and it is home to the largest Neonatal Intensive Care Unit in Ontario.

Other renowned clinical areas of focus include emergency medicine, cancer, complex orthopaedics, palliative care, diabetes, inflammatory bowel disease, geriatrics, and arthritis and autoimmune disease.

Mount Sinai has been designated with Exemplary Standing from Accreditation Canada, and is the only hospital in Canada to receive Magnet® recognition for nursing excellence and patient care.

The World’s Best Hospitals 2024 is based on a global survey, where more than 85,000 medical professionals were surveyed. The results are then validated by a global board of renowned medical experts.

The score also considers metrics on things like hygiene and patient/doctor ratio as well as a Statista survey on whether hospitals use Patient Reported Outcome Measures (PROMs), which are standardized questionnaires completed by patients to assess their experience and results.
