St. Joseph Mercy Chelsea appeared on the 2021 list of Newsweek’s World’s Best Hospitals, which was released online recently on the publication’s website. 

St. Joe’s Chelsea was ranked the second best hospital in the state of Michigan according to the report.  This is the second year in a row that St. Joe’s Chelsea has been recognized with the prestigious award, which is presented by Newsweek and Statista Inc., a statistics portal and industry ranking provider.

“To be recognized again this year as one of the ‘world’s best’ reinforces the pride we all have in our hospital and our ability to deliver high-quality care to local communities,” said Nancy Graebner, president of St. Joseph Mercy Chelsea, in a press release.

“Here in Chelsea, our patients love the calming, personalized feel of our small-town community hospital, but they also recognize and appreciate that the medical care and services they receive are second to none.  I would also like to congratulate Michigan Medicine, our joint venture partner in St. Joe’s Chelsea, and St. Joe’s Ann Arbor for also making this year’s ‘World’s Best Hospitals’ list,” she said.

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 that included more than 74,000 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 2021 recognizes the best medical institutions across 25 countries: USA, Canada, Germany, France, UK, Switzerland, South Korea, Japan, Singapore, Australia, Israel, Sweden, Denmark, Norway, Finland, Thailand, Italy, Brazil, India, Spain, Mexico, Poland, Austria, Belgium, and the Netherlands.
