Seven Australian hospitals have ranked in the Newsweek/Statista top 200 for specialised cardiology centres worldwide.
They are the Prince Charles Hospital and Royal Brisbane and Women’s Hospital in Queensland, Monash Heart, Royal Melbourne Hospital and The Alfred in Victoria, and the Royal Prince Alfred Hospital and St Vincent’s Hospital in NSW.
The rankings are based solely on peer recommendations for specific areas of expertise from a global survey of medical professionals.
The Prince Charles Hospital’s Heart and Lung Clinic was the top ranked Australian cardiology centre in position 24.
Royal Brisbane and Women’s Hospital Executive Director David Rosengren said it was an honour to be named among the world’s best.
“To be recognised on an international scale alongside our colleagues at The Prince Charles Hospital is a testament to our world-class staff, state-of-the-art facilities and supportive patient environment.
“Every day, our team at Royal Brisbane and Women’s Hospital strives to provide the very best healthcare to our patients, many of whom present with complex cases which require highly individualised treatment. Our clinicians are among the best in the world, which is reflected in this ranking.”
“Being named alongside international powerhouses such as the Cleveland Clinic and the Mayo Clinic for another year cements our status on the international stage.”
Monash Heart also made the top 50 in position 45.
