[Fergus Falls, MN] - Lake Region Healthcare (LRH) has been awarded on Newsweek’s list of World’s Best Hospitals 2022. This prestigious award is presented by Newsweek and Statista Inc., the world-leading statistics portal and industry ranking provider. The awards list was announced on March 2, 2022 and can currently be viewed on Newsweek’s website.

Newsweek and Statista developed a complex methodology to ensure the quality and validity of the ranking. Three data sources were used for the evaluation:

  • Hospital recommendations from peers: an international online survey sent to more than 80,000 doctors, hospital managers & health care professionals
  • Patient experience: surveys measuring patient satisfaction with hospitals
  • Medical KPIs: patient safety, hygiene measures, and quality of treatment

The World’s Best Hospitals 2022 recognizes the best medical institutions across 27 countries: USA, Canada, Germany, France, UK, Switzerland, South Korea, Japan, Singapore, Australia, Israel, Sweden, Denmark, Norway, Finland, Thailand, Italy, Brazil, India, Spain, Mexico, Saudi Arabia, United Arab Emirates, Colombia, Austria, Belgium, and the Netherlands.

“We are ecstatic to be recognized on Newsweek’s list of World’s Best Hospitals 2022,” said CEO Kent Mattson. “This comes on the heels of two other notable recognitions this winter including the Chartis Top 100 Rural and Community Hospitals and the Becker’s top Minnesota hospitals for patient experience. The dedication, expertise and compassion of our physicians, providers and staff is clearly exceptional and is being noticed statewide, nationally, and now even globally.”
