Newsweek listed out the top 250 hospitals worldwide. The 10 best were highlighted particularly for their “intriguing use of artificial intelligence to advance medical discoveries.”

Hospitals were scored based on an online survey of about 85,000 medical experts and publicly available data from post-hospitalization patient surveys on their general satisfaction, Newsweek said. Hygiene and patient/doctor ratios were also considered, along with a Statista survey on whether hospitals use “Patient Reported Outcome Measures,” which are surveys filled out by patients about their experience.
