Newsweek has just named the Hadassah Medical Organization (HMO) a world leader in oncology, the only medical center in Israel to receive that honor. For the fifth year in a row, the magazine has also named Hadassah one of the world’s top hospitals in both cardiology and smart technology.

The rankings appear in the “World’s Best Hospitals 2023,” the fifth annual assessment of 300 hospitals in 28 countries produced by Newsweek in partnership with the global data firm Statista.

The achievements place Hadassah alongside such world-renowned medical centers as the Mayo Clinic, the Cleveland Clinic, New York City’s Mount Sinai Hospital, The Johns Hopkins Hospital, and other top hospital systems around the globe.

Prof. Yoram Weiss, director general of HMO, said, “Hadassah has gained a global reputation thanks to its groundbreaking research and advanced medical care. I am delighted to see that, for the fifth year in a row, we have been recognized for the uncompromising quality of our teams in the fields of oncology and cardiology and as a ‘smart’ hospital using the most advanced technologies.”

The Newsweek-Statista results are based on more than 20,000 recommendations from thousands of medical experts and verified by a global committee of medical specialists.
