According to the ranking, the 250 hospitals were given a score based on an online survey of more than 85,000 medical experts and public data from post-hospitalization patient surveys on their general satisfaction.

Several other metrics are also taken into account, such as hygiene and patient/doctor ratio as well as a Statista survey on whether hospitals use Patient Reported Outcome Measures (PROMs), which are standardized questionnaires completed by patients to assess their experience and results.
