CLEVELAND (WJW) — Newsweek has ranked Cleveland Clinic as the second best hospital in the entire world.

Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota took the top spot, according to the publication.

This is the second year in a row that Newsweek has teamed up with a global data research company to determine which hospitals are leading the way.

“For 99 years, we have striven to fulfill the mission our founders set out for us — to provide better care of the sick, investigate their problems and further educate those who serve,” said Cleveland Clinic CEO and President Tom Mihaljevic, M.D. “It is our ethical obligation to serve as many patients as possible, because we know every person could benefit from the quality of care we provide.”

Newsweek issued the following statement about the Cleveland Clinic:

“Cleveland Clinic has always made patient care its centerpiece, and it takes to heart its motto: `Care for the patient as if they are your own family.’ Historically, Cleveland has also been known for medical breakthroughs and organ transplants, including the first face transplant in the United States. In 2019, it broke its own organ transplant records—897, up 3 percent from the year before—including the world’s first single-port robotic kidney transplant, which allows for a single small incision and limits the need for postoperative opioids for pain relief.”
