Clinical excellence, quality and extraordinary patient care
Apr 23, 2022

UC Davis Medical Center ranked among World’s Best Hospitals by Newsweek

“To be recognized among the best hospitals in the world reflects the incredible dedication of our entire team as they provide the most advanced, comprehensive care for patients,” said David Lubarsky, CEO of UC Davis Health. “As COVID-19 has changed how we care for our communities, what remains steadfast is our focus on clinical excellence, quality and extraordinary patient care. We strive to bring the most innovative advancements in medicine resulting in the best possible outcomes and personalized positive experiences.”

Newsweek’s rankings are based on responses to an online survey sent to nearly 80,000 medical experts – mostly physicians, but also hospital managers and other health care professionals in 27 countries.
