Tulane Medical Center Named Among ‘World’s Best Hospitals’ by Newsweek
Hospital named one of top 250 hospitals in the nation, one of only two Louisiana facilities recognized NEW ORLEANS – Tulane Medical Center has been named a World’s Best Hospital by Newsweek in its 2019 listing of the top medical facilities across the globe. Of the 1,000 hospitals listed in the report, Tulane Medical Center is one of just 250 “World’s Best Hospitals” found in the United States and the only hospital in southern Louisiana on the list. “Not only are we in the company facilities like Mayo Clinic and Cleveland Clinic – two other American hospitals noted in the report – we join Singapore General Hospital, which leads global clinical research efforts, and the Charit hospital in Berlin, which employs more than half of Germany’s Nobel Prize winners in physiology and medicine,” said Dr. William Lunn, Tulane Health System’s president and CEO. “Never has our mission to provide world-class patient care, education and research felt more lived and affirmed.” The Newsweek rankings are based on a combination of publically-reported quality and patient satisfaction data as well as reputation surveys sent to tens of thousands of physicians, nurses and other medical professionals across 11 different countries. Based on these composite rankings, Newsweek ranked Tulane Medical Center No. 178 out of more than 3,800 hospitals nationwide. “As with any such award, we don’t celebrate the ‘win’ – we celebrate what it represents,” Dr. Lunn said. “We celebrate the quality care our team provides. We celebrate our research, our clinical trials and our education that is literally shaping the future of medicine. We celebrate the selfless compassion shown to each and every patient who walks through our doors. “We celebrate lifesaving medicine that has created ripples throughout our community, our region and – now we know – throughout the world.” For a full list of the World’s Best Hospitals and more information about the publication’s methodology, please visit Newsweek.com.
