WCH makes World’s Best Hospitals 2024 list

Wooster Community Hospital was awarded a spot on Newsweek’s list of World’s Best Hospitals 2024. Newsweek and Statista Inc., the world-leading statistics portal and industry ranking provider, present the award, which was announced Feb. 28 and can be viewed on Newsweek’s website.

The lists are based on four data sources:

—Recommendations from medical experts: online surveys among tens of thousands of doctors, healthcare professionals and hospital managers in 30 countries.

—Results from patient surveys: surveys of patient satisfaction with hospitalization.

—Hospital quality metrics: medical indicators such as data on quality of care for treatments, hygiene measures, patient safety and waiting times.

—PROMs implementation surveys: optional online surveys on the implementation and use of PROMs in hospitals.

Based on the above four pillars and their respective weights, a final source was calculated for each hospital. Wooster Community Hospital was recognized on Newsweek’s World’s Best Hospitals 2024 list.

“We are honored but not surprised to be included in the list of the World’s Best Hospitals,” said Bill Sheron, Wooster Community Hospital president/CEO. “This validates what we do every day and try to share with our community — that great hospitals are defined by the measurable quality of the patient care and experience they deliver, not by their size or name awareness. Kudos to our board and the world-class team of employees and physicians. You make a difference for many people.”

The World’s Best Hospitals 2024 ranking lists the best hospitals in 30 countries: USA, Germany, Japan, France, Italy, United Kingdom, South Korea, Brazil, India, Spain, Canada, Australia, Mexico, Colombia, Netherlands, Saudi Arabia, Switzerland, Taiwan, United Arab Emirates, Austria, Belgium, Chile, Malaysia, Thailand, Sweden, Denmark, Finland, Norway, Israel and Singapore.

The countries were selected based on multiple comparability factors such as standard of living/life expectancy, population size, number of hospitals and data availability.
