Princess Margaret ranked in world top 10 for oncology
October 13, 2021
TORONTO – The University Hospital Network’s (UHN) Princess Margaret Cancer Centre has ranked in the top 10 on Newsweek’s list of the World’s Best Specialized Hospitals 2022, in the area of oncology.
Newsweek’s 2022 World’s Best Specialized Hospitals is based on a global survey of medical professionals. The recommendation score is based on two sub-scores, for primary recommendations and secondary recommendations.
In cooperation with Newsweek, Statista – a market leader in the provision of reliable business data – invited over 40,000 medical experts (medical doctors, healthcare professionals, hospital managers and directors) in over 20 countries to an online survey. Additionally, experts from all over the world were able to participate in the “World’s Best Specialized Hospitals 2022” survey on newsweek.com. The data were collected from June to August 2021.
Participants were asked to recommend and rank hospitals based on their expertise in one primary medical field (e.g., cardiology for cardiologists) and were able to choose an optional secondary area of expertise. Secondary recommendations were given a lower weight. The questionnaire did not suggest a list of hospitals and respondents were free to suggest any hospital they deemed recommendable (aided by an autocomplete function for convenience). Statista performed plausibility checks on all data to prevent self-nomination.
