PGIMER has been recognised as one of the world’s best-specialised hospitals, according to the results of an independent analysis by Newsweek and Statista.
The ranking was released on the Newsweek website on September 14 and published in the enclosed print edition of Newsweek Magazine.
Director of PGI Prof Vivek Lal received a letter signed by Nancy Cooper, Global Editor-in-Chief of Newsweek, and Dr Friedrich Schwnadt, CEO of Statista, congratulating him for the institute’s feat.
PGI bagged this distinct honour for specialising in the fields of cardiology and endocrinology based on the parameters including reputation score, accreditation score, and PROM (Patient-Reported Outcome Measures) survey score taken into consideration.
Prof Lal complimented the PGI staff for their efforts. Expressing his gratification, the director said, “A strong focus on patient outcomes, an academic culture, a compassionate mindset, and an inspiring environment for young talent are the enabling factors over decades that make PGI an institute par excellence and the credit for creating all these enabling factors goes to the peerless team of PGI.”
Newsweek and Statista invited more than 40,000 medical experts, including doctors, hospital managers, and health care professionals, to participate in online surveys that allowed them to recommend and assess various hospitals within their respective specialisations.
The ‘World’s Best Specialised Hospitals 2023’ ranking identifies and honours the very best hospitals around the globe that specialise in cardiology, endocrinology, gastroenterology, oncology, neurology, orthopaedics, pediatric and adolescent medicine, cardiac surgery, neurosurgery, pulmonology, and urology.
