NEW YORK CITY — Newsweek has named Israel’s Hadassah Medical Organization a world leader in cardiology and oncology in the magazine’s 2024 rankings of the world’s best specialized hospitals. This is the fourth year in a row that the Israeli hospital system has been included in the list of the world’s top hospitals for cardiology and the third year in a row it has been among the world’s top hospitals for oncology.

Newsweek has also named Hadassah a leader in the use of “smart” technologies, such as digital imaging, artificial intelligence, robotics and telemedicine. Notes the magazine, “Taking advantage of these new technologies improves hospital care outcomes and efficiency and positions hospitals as part of a broader ecosystem that aims to drive key health processes such as disease prevention, population health, and improved quality of life.”

The 2024 rankings put Hadassah in the company of such leading American medical institutions as the Mayo Clinic, the Cleveland Clinic, New York City’s Mount Sinai Hospital and The Johns Hopkins Hospital, in addition to top hospital systems around world, including Gustave Roussy in France and Seoul National University Hospital.

The World’s Best Specialized Hospitals 2024 and the World's Best Smart Hospitals 2024, Newsweek’s latest annual assessments of more than 250 hospitals worldwide, are based on the recommendations of tens of thousands of medical experts and verified by a global committee of medical specialists. Newsweek produces the annual report in partnership with the global data firm Statista.

“I am so proud that Hadassah once again appears in Newsweek’s rigorous annual assessment of hospitals across the globe,” said Dr. Yoram Weiss, Director General, Hadassah Medical Organization. “Our medical teams are increasingly recognized for their advances in research and for the quality of the care they provide in cardiology, oncology and many other areas as well as for their use of technology – an honor we in ‘Start-Up Nation’ especially relish.”

Said Rhoda Smolow, National President, Hadassah, The Women's Zionist Organization of America, which founded and owns the Israeli hospital system, "We are delighted that the Hadassah Medical Organization’s health care professionals, administrators and staff are receiving the recognition their work so richly merits."
