ChristianaCare Ranked as One of World’s Best Hospitals by Newsweek for 6th Consecutive Year

ChristianaCare has been ranked by Newsweek as one of the World’s Best Hospitals (United States) for the sixth year in a row. The rankings are based on hospital quality metrics, patient-reported outcome measures, patient satisfaction data and peer recommendations from thousands of health care providers and other medical experts.

“Our caregivers earned this award by providing world-class care to our patients, by expanding their fields of knowledge and by pursuing excellence in their daily interactions with patients. We are proud of them,” said Kert Anzilotti, M.D., MBA.

“We are pleased to have earned this distinction for the sixth straight year because it validates what we already know: ChristianaCare delivers exceptional patient care,” said President and CEO Janice E. Nevin, M.D., MPH. “Our goal is to provide high-quality care and positive outcomes to the people in our community. Being listed among the World’s Best Hospitals yet again confirms that our caregivers are delivering on that goal.”

ChristianaCare, headquartered in Wilmington, Delaware, was ranked 85th in the U.S. on Newsweek’s list, which rated 2,400 hospitals in 30 countries this year. In addition, Newsweek recently named ChristianaCare’s Center for Rehabilitation at Wilmington Hospital among America’s Best Physical Rehabilitation Centers.

“These rankings have elevated our reputation globally, which our health care providers wholeheartedly deserve,” said Kert Anzilotti, M.D., MBA, system chief medical officer. “Our caregivers earned this award by providing world-class care to our patients, by expanding their fields of knowledge and by pursuing excellence in their daily interactions with patients. We are proud of them.”

For the 10th time, ChristianaCare has been recognized by the American College of Surgeons for excellent performance in surgical patient care.

Newsweek and the global data firm Statista based the annual list on data gathered from these sources:

  • Recommendations from more than 85,000 medical experts worldwide, who were surveyed about the hospitals in their own countries, as well as other countries. The medical experts were unable to recommend their own hospitals.
  • Data from publicly available patient surveys, which polled how satisfied patients were with their medical care, as well as their feeling toward the hospital overall and whether they would recommend it to others.
  • Hospital quality metrics, which measure data such as quality of patient care, patient safety, hygiene ratings and the ratio of patients to doctors and nurses.
  • Data from standardized Patient-Reported Outcome Measures surveys, in which patients share their opinions about the quality of care they receive, their progress toward their health goals and their overall well-being.
