April 17, 2019

The Valley Hospital has been named one of the world’s best hospitals by Newsweek in its inaugural World’s Best Hospitals 2019 list.

The World’s Best Hospitals 2019 ranking lists the 1,000 best hospitals in 11 countries: USA, Canada, Germany, France, United Kingdom, Switzerland, South Korea, Japan, Singapore, Australia and Israel. 

Valley is one of only five N.J. hospitals and 250 U.S. hospitals featured on the list, and is ranked as the 104th best hospital in the U.S.

“We are honored to be considered among the best hospitals in the world,” said Audrey Meyers, President and CEO of The Valley Hospital and Valley Health System. “Valley is committed to providing high-quality care and service to our patients and their families through our specialized programs and distinctive technologies, as well as through our partnerships with Cleveland Clinic’s Heart & Vascular Institute and Mount Sinai Health System. This recognition is a testament to the innovative work of our doctors, nurses and staff in delivering an exceptional patient experience.”

The World’s Best Hospitals 2019 list, created by Newsweek Media Group and Statista Inc., selected the 11 countries to survey for this list based on standard of living/life expectancy, population size, number of hospitals and data availability. The 1,000 hospitals recognized were selected based on recommendations from medical professionals, patient survey results and medical performance indicators.
