Charité – Universitätsmedizin Berlin has achieved sixth place in the international Newsweek ranking, improving its position by one place and once again making it into the top ten. At the same time, Berlin University Medicine is the best European hospital. The US weekly Newsweek and the data portal Statista have compared the best 2,400 hospitals worldwide. The annual ranking shows the international reputation of a hospital and the networking of its doctors.

Prof Heyo K. Kroemer, Chairman of the Executive Board of Charité, explains: “Since the start of the Newsweek ranking in 2019, we have now been ranked among the ten best hospitals worldwide for the sixth time in a row. This is a great honour for what we have achieved and, of course, an equally great incentive to become even better. It is impressive how our Charité team manages, despite all the challenges, to reliably deliver top performance and be internationally competitive in Berlin as a centre of health and science. I would like to thank our more than 22,000 dedicated employees across the Group, who provide our patients with the highest level of care every day and dedicate themselves to important medical research and teaching.”

A total of 2,400 hospitals from 30 countries were assessed for the World’s Best Hospitals 2024 ranking. The US Mayo Clinic took first place worldwide. Of the European hospitals, the Charité is in 6th place, the Karolinska Universitetssjukhuset in Stockholm is in 7th place, the Hôpital Universitaire Pitié Salpêtrière in Paris is in 8th place and the University Hospital Zurich is in 10th place among the top ten.

The ranking list has been compiled since 2019. It is based on doctors’ recommendations, patient satisfaction surveys and medical performance indicators on treatment quality and hygiene measures. Voting for one’s own hospital was not permitted.
