Toronto General Hospital (TGH) has again ranked fourth among the world's best hospitals in a global ranking.
This is TGH's third year in a row achieving this ranking, and fourth year within the top 10, where it remains the only Canadian hospital listed.
Over its more than a century-long history, TGH has made significant contributions to healthcare globally, including the first clinical use of insulin, the first successful single- and double-lung transplants, revolutionizing organ transplantation through the Ex Vivo Lung Perfusion System, and the first successful direct stimulation of a heart that had stopped beating, the precursor of all pacemakers.
Part of University Health Network (UHN), TGH is home to the world-leading Sprott Department of Surgery, Peter Munk Cardiac Centre and Ajmera Transplant Centre among other programs.
The ranking, managed by a global market research company in partnership with Newsweek magazine, rated more than 1,000 healthcare institutions. The 2022 ranking was finalized by a panel of doctors, medical professionals and administrators from across four continents.
World's top 10 hospitals:
UHN is Canada's largest research and teaching hospital. In addition to research and education, TGH maintains a strong dedication to exceptional patient care, a standard applied across UHN.
"UHN is proud to once again be recognized as a global leader in patient care and research," says Dr. Kevin Smith, UHN President & CEO. "It is an honour to be listed among our peers at so many other exceptional hospitals.
"Our continued position on this list is a testament to the dedication and passion displayed daily by our staff, physicians, researchers, Board and volunteers. We share this recognition with each of them, and with all our donors and UHN Foundation, whose tireless support allows us to continue our work to deliver A Healthier World."
Philanthropy has been crucial to TGH's many world-first achievements as well as enhancements to patient care. The achievements made possible thanks to the generous support of donors contributed to TGH's number four ranking.
"We are proud to bring the exceptional minds across UHN together with visionary donors who are excited to contribute to such globally-influential work," says Tennys Hanson, Chief Executive Officer of UHN Foundation and Vice President and Chief Development Officer of UHN. "We are grateful to each of our donors for their dedication to fueling this life-saving work.
"Congratulations to all of our colleagues at TGH and across UHN for this exceptional achievement."
