Allina Health’s Abbott Northwestern and Mercy hospitals named to Newsweek’s World’s Best Hospitals 2024

MINNEAPOLIS, Minn. (March 14, 2024) — Allina Health’s Abbott Northwestern and Mercy hospitals have been named among the World's Best Hospitals 2024, awarded by Newsweek and Statista. 

It is the fifth year in a row that Abbott Northwestern Hospital has been named to the list, and the second time for Mercy Hospital. 

“This is a well-deserved honor for our expert care teams who are among the best at providing high-quality, patient-centered care,” said Michael Johnston, president, Allina Health Mercy Hospital. “We thank all those in our community who entrust us with their care.”

Each hospital's score is based on an online survey of more than 85,000 medical experts and public data from post-hospitalization patient surveys on their general satisfaction. The score also considers metrics on things like hygiene and patient/doctor ratio as well as a Statista survey on whether hospitals use Patient Reported Outcome Measures (PROMs), which are standardized questionnaires completed by patients to assess their experience and results.

"We are honored that Abbott Northwestern Hospital continues to make the list of the World’s Best Hospitals,” said David Joos, president, Abbott Northwestern Hospital and Allina Health Southwest Region. “Our care teams are unwavering in their commitment to delivering innovative, equitable and compassionate care. This ranking recognizes how they consistently perform at the highest level.”
