Cleveland Clinic Abu Dhabi, a world-class healthcare facility that is part of Mubadala Health, has been recognized as the best hospital in the UAE, in the World’s Best Hospital 2022 Index compiled by Newsweek and Statista.

Cleveland Clinic has also earned a spot on the top 150 global hospitals in the ranking, which evaluates over 2,200 hospitals from 27 countries around the world.

Commenting on the achievement, Mr. Waleed Al Mokarrab Al Muhairi, Chairman of Cleveland Clinic Abu Dhabi and Deputy Group CEO of Mubadala Investment Company, stated that “I would like to congratulate the entire team at Cleveland Clinic Abu Dhabi on this achievement. It is thanks to their commitment and collective efforts that we are now recognized as one of the best hospitals in the world.”

Meanwhile, Mr. Tom Mihaljevic, M.D., Cleveland Clinic CEO and President remarked that “Ranking among the world’s best hospitals is affirmation of our caregivers’ continued commitment to providing patients with the best care anywhere. It solidifies Cleveland Clinic’s international reputation for safe, high-quality care. The world looks to Cleveland Clinic for innovative solutions to the greatest challenges in healthcare. Every location bears the unmistakable stamp of One Cleveland Clinic. This is the Cleveland Clinic way.”

The rankings are based on three data sources, namely; online surveys of more than 80,000 medical experts from around the world, results from publicly available patient experience surveys and medical key performance indicators, including patient safety, infection prevention measures, and doctor-to-patient ratios.

The rankings recognize Cleveland Clinic and other high-ranking hospitals for their ability to provide high-quality patient care and critical medical research amid the global pandemic.

For his part, Cleveland Clinic Abu Dhabi CEO, Mr. Jorge Guzman, M.D., said: “We are delighted to be positioned so highly on this prestigious list, a veritable who’s who of the best hospitals from around the world. The rankings are compiled by collating feedback from medical healthcare professionals and patients, relating to two key objectives of ours: to be the best employer in the healthcare sector and the most trusted provider of patient care in the UAE and the wider region. This recognition is a testament to our continuous focus and commitment to bring world-class care closer to home, to advance the UAE healthcare sector, and to always put patients first.”

Last year, the Department of Health-Abu Dhabi honored Cleveland Clinic Abu Dhabi with a ‘5 Diamonds Rating’ on the Health Care Quality Index ‘Muashir’, in line with the best practices in the world for evaluating the quality of health care providers in the UAE.
