Newsweek partnered with Statista Inc., a global market research and consumer data company, to develop the ranking. Hospitals were evaluated based on three data sources.

The first included hospital recommendations from peers through an online survey of doctors, health care professionals and hospital managers from 11 countries. About 40,000 medical experts were invited to the survey.

The rankings also looked at patient experience based on surveys of patient satisfaction with hospitalization and also incorporated medical key performance indicators (KPIs) for hospitals, which included data on quality of treatment, hygiene measures, and patient safety measures.
