ROCHESTER, Minnesota —Mayo Clinic in Rochester was again ranked No. 1 in the world by Newsweek in its 2022 list of the "World's Best Hospitals." The ranking is a tribute to the work of staff across Mayo Clinic.

The Newsweek rankings are based on patient survey results, hospital recommendations from peers gathered through an international survey of more than 80,000 health care professionals, and key performance metrics such as patient safety, hygiene measures and quality of care.

The hospitals named in the rankings stand out for their consistent excellence, including distinguished physicians, top-notch nursing care, and state-of-the-art technology, according to Newsweek.

"What has set the world's leading hospitals apart is their continued ability to deliver the highest-quality patient care and conduct critical medical research, even as they focused on battling COVID-19," according to Newsweek. "Consistency in excellence is the hallmark of these institutions, with familiar names dominating the list and top spots."
