Thursday, September 29, 2022 @ 5:43 PM

A RANKING of the world's best hospitals released by Newsweek includes 15 from Spain in the top 250.

Published annually, the complete list includes 2,200 hospitals in 27 countries, with three new nations entering for the first time – Colombia, Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates.

Spain's best medical centres, according to the classification, are found throughout the mainland, from north to south.

Six of them are in the top 100, and a total of seven in the top 150 – a section led by the USA with 33.

All the top three are in the United States – Mayo Clinic-Rochester, Cleveland Clinic, and Massachusetts General Hospital – and the top-ranked in Spain is Madrid's Hospital La Paz, at 52.

Eight in total are in the capital, including the third-best in the country, the 12 de Octubre University Hospital, at number 66.

Another three are in Catalunya, one in Pamplona (Navarra), and one each in Valencia and Sevilla.

Barcelona's Hospital Clínic is second in Spain and number 63 in the world, then Madrid's Gregorio Marañón General University Hospital is at 75.

The Vall d'Hebron hospital in Barcelona is ranked 81st in the world, and the Clínica Universidad de Navarra – which also has a branch in Madrid – comes in at 86.

Madrid's Ramón y Cajal Hospital is 141st in the world.

After number 150 – which is, again, in the USA, being the University of California-Davis Medical Center – the ranking combines the next 100 into a single block, listed as 151-250.

In this, Madrid's Hospital Clínico San Carlos and Barcelona's La Santa Creu i Sant Pau, Madrid's Ruber International, Jiménez Díaz Foundation University Hospital, and Puerta de Hierro, appear along with Sevilla's Virgen del Rocío and Valencia's La Fe.

Some of the hospitals ranked much higher on certain specialist areas, however.
