Glasgow Royal is world class – it’s official

Tuesday, April 16, 2019

Glasgow Royal Infirmary has secured its place a world-leading healthcare facility – being named by Newsweek as one of the top 100 hospitals in the World.

Newsweek teamed up with Statista Inc, a global market research and consumer data company, to develop a groundbreaking ranking of the world’s best hospitals. The top list was whittled down from 1,000 recommendations from medical professionals, patient survey results and medical performance indicators. 

Glasgow Royal Infirmary is the only Scottish Hospital to make the top-notch list, which included top facilities in Germany, Japan, Switzerland and the United States.

The hospitals on this list are at the forefront of adapting to new challenges while providing outstanding patient care. They range from the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota, with its peerless educational arm; to Singapore General Hospital, which pursues clinical research and offers outstanding nursing; to the Charité hospital in Berlin, which employs more than half of Germany’s Nobel Prize winners in physiology or medicine.

Commenting on the report, Dr Chris Deighan, Chief of Medicine for NHS Glasgow and Clyde’s north sector said: “We are delighted that Glasgow Royal Infirmary is named in the top 100 hospitals in the world and in the top 10 in the UK.

“’The Royal’ has been caring for Glaswegians for 225 years now and has been at the forefront of pioneering medicine over that time. This recognises the hard work, dedication and excellent care for patients that is provided by our staff.”
