Newsweek has ranked Rush University Medical Center No. 16 in the U.S. and No. 56 in the world on its 2022 list of “World’s Best Hospitals." Last year, the Medical Center was ranked No. 19 in the country and No. 75 in the world.

The hospitals on this year’s list stand out for their consistent excellence and their ability to deliver the highest level of patient care amid the demands of an ever-changing and grueling pandemic, Newsweek says.

“I take great pride in our continued success and dedication,” said Dr. Omar Lateef, president and CEO of Rush University Medical Center. “Every single member of the Rush community has worked tirelessly to provide expert-level patient care through a truly challenging time. It’s an honor to be recognized again for our hard work.”

This is the fourth year that Newsweek has partnered with Statista, a provider of market and consumer data, to score hospitals through health care industry leadership surveys, patient surveys and publicly available performance metrics. It then used this data to create a ranking system that compares hospitals from around the world.

The rankings prioritized recommendations from peers in the medical field, publicly available performance and safety data, and patient satisfaction surveys.
