Silver Cross Hospital

The way you should be treated.™

Silver Cross Hospital was recently named one of the Best Hospitals in the World by Newsweek magazine.

Silver Cross was one of only 14 hospitals in Illinois and one of only 250 in the entire United States to earn the recognition as one of the top hospitals in the world.

“We’re thrilled to be ranked among the top hospitals in the world by Newsweek magazine,” said Ruth Colby, President and CEO of Silver Cross Hospital. “At Silver Cross, we strive to deliver the best possible patient experience. This recognition is a testament to the amazing efforts our staff, physicians and volunteers put forth on a daily basis to ensure our patients receive the highest quality care in a safe environment.”

This is the first time Newsweek has released a list ranking 1,000 hospitals around the world. The list ranks the best hospitals in 11 countries including the United States, Canada, Germany, France, United Kingdom, Switzerland, South Korea, Japan, Singapore, Australia and Israel.

The magazine partnered with Statista Inc., an international market research company, to develop what it called a “rigorous methodology” to evaluate hospitals based on three sources.

First, the study looked at hospital recommendations from peers, including online surveys from doctors, hospital managers, and other health care professionals in the 11 countries. About 40,000 medical experts were invited to complete the survey.

Additionally, the rankings were based on patient experiences using surveys that measured patient satisfaction with hospitals. Medical key performance indicators such as quality of treatment, hygiene measures, and patient safety were also incorporated into the rankings.

Silver Cross was recognized as a top hospital for anesthesiology, perioperative and pain medicine, cardiology, diabetes and endocrinology, gastroenterology, general and visceral surgery, gynecology and obstetrics, neurology and neurosurgery, palliative care, pediatrics, pediatric surgery and neonatology, pulmonology, radiation oncology, radiology, traumatology, orthopedics, and spine surgery.
