Tampa General Hospital Named #1 in Tampa and #3 in Florida to Newsweek’s “World’s Best Hospitals 2023” List and Is Among the Nation’s Top 100
Tampa General Hospital is ranked among the Nation’s top 100 hospitals on the list.

TAMPA, Fla. (March 2, 2023) – Tampa General Hospital (TGH) has been named the number one hospital in Tampa Bay and the number three hospital in Florida as well as one of the top 100 hospitals in the United States, according to Newsweek. The 1,040-bed academic medical center was recently ranked as one of the news magazine’s "World's Best Hospitals 2023" and was listed among the Best Hospitals for Infection Prevention.
“This recognition is a true testament to our exceptional team at Tampa General Hospital, who tirelessly deliver world-class patient care every day,” said John Couris, president and CEO of Tampa General Hospital. “I am honored to lead and work side by side with such dedicated health care professionals who work relentlessly to ensure that Tampa General Hospital is one of the safest and most innovative health systems in the nation.”
The “World's Best Hospitals 2023” list recognizes the best medical institutions across 28 countries: the United States, Germany, Japan, South Korea, France, Italy, the United Kingdom, Spain, Brazil, Canada, India, Australia, Mexico, the Netherlands, Austria, Thailand, Switzerland, Sweden, Belgium, Finland, Norway, Denmark, Israel, Singapore, the United Arab Emirates, Colombia, Saudi Arabia, and Taiwan. The countries were selected based on multiple comparability factors, including standard of living/life expectancy, population size, number of hospitals, and data availability.
Hospitals were selected based on four data sources:

  • Over 80,000 medical experts Doctors, hospital managers and health care professionals in 28 countries were invited to participate in the online survey. Participants were asked to recommend hospitals in their own country as well as in other countries. Recommendations for a participant’s own employer/hospital were not allowed.
  • Results from patient experience surveysPublicly available data from existing patient surveys was used to analyze the patient experience. Patient surveys are typically conducted by insurance companies following hospital services. Examples of survey topics include general satisfaction with the hospital, patients’ recommendation of the hospital, satisfaction with medical care and satisfaction with the service and organization.
  • Hospital quality metrics – Hospital quality metrics from a variety of public sources were collected for most of the countries. Some examples of indicators include data on the quality of care for specific treatments, data on hygiene measures and patient safety, and data on staffing, such as the number of patients per doctors/per nurse.
  • Patient-reported outcome measures – For the first time, Statista and Newsweek surveyed hospitals regarding the implementation and use of patient-reported experience measures to assess the quality of health care experiences, focusing on patients. Patient-reported outcome measures are defined as standardized, validated questionnaires completed by patients to measure their perception of their functional well-being and quality of life.

“Among the hallmarks of great hospitals, however, are not just first-class care, first-class research and first-class innovation. The very best institutions also share another quality: consistency. The world's best hospitals consistently attract the best people and provide the best outcomes for patients as well as the most important new therapies and research. Of all the hospitals in the world, relatively few can do all those things year in and year out. The best belong to a very exclusive club,” said Nancy Cooper, Global editor-in-chief, Newsweek.
Newsweek compared scores among hospitals in the same country because different sources for patient experience and medical Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) were examined in each country. The U.S. ranking listed 414 participating hospitals with Tampa General at No. 84.
