Brookings Health System Again Named on Newsweek’s World’s Best Hospitals List
- March 03, 2022
For the second consecutive year, Brookings Health System was named to Newsweek’s list of World’s Best Hospitals. This prestigious award is presented by Newsweek and Statista Inc., the world-leading statistics portal and industry ranking provider. The awards list can currently be viewed on Newsweek’s website.
“Unsolicited recognitions such as this validates our team’s dedication to patient safety and satisfaction,” said President and CEO Jason Merkley. “Being the only rural community hospital from South Dakota listed by Newsweek alongside the two Sioux Falls hospitals demonstrates that our team continually innovates, attracts the best people and excels at all aspects of service and quality.”
Brookings Health ranks 254 of the Best Hospitals 2022 in the United States, up over 50 spots from last year’s ranking. Newsweek and Statista developed a complex methodology to ensure the quality and validity of the ranking. Three data sources were used for the evaluation:
- Hospital recommendations from peers: an international online survey that included more than 80,000 doctors, hospital managers and health care professionals
- Patient experience: surveys measuring patient satisfaction with hospitals
- Medical key performance indicators (KPIs): patient safety, hygiene measures, and quality of treatment
The World’s Best Hospitals 2022 list recognizes the best medical institutions across 27 countries: USA, Canada, Germany, France, UK, Switzerland, South Korea, Japan, Singapore, Australia, Israel, Sweden, Denmark, Norway, Finland, Thailand, Italy, Brazil, India, Spain, Mexico, Saudi Arabia, United Arab Emirates, Columbia, Austria, Belgium, and the Netherlands.
