Aussie endocrinology clinics recognised in global top 100

Four Australian hospitals have ranked in the Newsweek/Statista top 100 for specialised endocrinology centres worldwide.

They are the Royal Brisbane and Women’s Hospital in Queensland, Royal Melbourne Hospital in Victoria, and the Royal Prince Alfred Hospital and Westmead in NSW.

The rankings are based solely on peer recommendations for specific areas of expertise from a global survey of medical professionals.

The Royal Melbourne Hospital’s endocrinology service was the top ranked Australian endocrinology centre in position 30.

The US scooped the top three centres worldwide with the Mayo Clinic – Rochester, the Cleveland Clinic, and Massachusetts General Hospital.

The Royal Brisbane and Women’s Hospital and the Royal Prince Alfred Hospital also ranked in the top 200 for both cardiology and oncology, the Royal Melbourne also ranked for cardiology, and Westmead for oncology.

Royal Brisbane and Women’s Hospital Executive Director David Rosengren said it was an honour to be recognised on an international scale – a testament to world-class staff, state-of-the-art facilities and a 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.”
