Rome's Gemelli rated Best Hospital in Italy for fourth year in a row

Gemelli hospital climbs to 35th in world rankings.

Rome's Policlinico Gemelli has been confirmed as the best hospital in Italy for the fourth consecutive year in the annual rankings compiled by American magazine Newsweek and Statista R.

The Gemelli is once again ranked among the top 50 hospitals internationally, claiming 35th position in the 2024 edition of the World's Best Hospitals list, up from 38th place last year.

The annual list assessed 2,400 hospitals in 30 countries, taking into account a variety of Key Performance Indicators, tens of thousands of interviews with doctors and health professionals, and patient satisfaction questionnaires.

In a statement, Gemelli president Carlo Fratta Pasini welcomed the result, saying: "The strength of the Policlinico Gemelli lies in its history and its mission as a hospital at the service of everyone, which combines cutting-edge care and research, but also the training of doctors and healthcare workers."

The Mayo Clinic-Rochester is once again in first place in the World's Best Hospitals list, followed by the Cleveland Clinic in second position, Toronto General Hospital in third, Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore fourth place and Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston fifth.

The Universitätsmedizin in Berlin is sixth, followed by Karolinska Universitetssjukhuset in Stockholm (7), AP-HP – Hôpital Universitaire Pitié Salpêtrière in Paris (8), Sheba Medical Center in Israel (9) and Universitätsspital in Zurich (10).

Best hospitals in Italy in 2024 according to Newsweek rankings

Italy has five hospitals in the world's top 100: the Gemelli is followed by the Niguarda in Milan (52nd place), S. Raffaele in Milan (57), Humanitas in Milan (65) S. Orsola in Bologna (66).

The other Italian hospitals in the 2024 rankings are the Azienda Ospedaliera Universitaria Integrata in Verona (103), Ospedale policlinico San Matteo in Pavia (117), l'Azienda ospedaliera in Padua (118), Ospedale Papa Giovanni XXIII in Bergamo (135), Presidio ospedaliero Molinette - Aou Città della Salute e della Scienza in Turin (165), Azienda Ospedaliero Universitaria Careggi in Florence (187), Spedali Civili di Brescia (202), Sant'Andrea in Roma (211) and the l'Irccs Arcispedale Santa Maria Nuova di Reggio Emilia (215).

A total of 14 Italian hospitals make the list, none of which are in the south, with Rome claiming a second ranking in addition to the Gemelli, with the inclusion of the Sant'Andrea university hospital in 211th place.

The news was welcomed by the governor of the Lazio region, Francesco Rocca, who said the ranking was "an important recognition due to the work and sacrifice of professionals who make our region great in the world".

The Gemelli made world headlines three years ago when its doctors performed colon surgery on Pope Francis.

Sometimes referred to as "the pope's hospital", the Gemelli has a section on the 10th floor reserved exclusively for popes, where John Paul II was treated after being shot in 1981.
