For the second year in a row, Royal Prince Alfred Hospital is in the world's top 100 hospitals
Royal Prince Alfred Hospital has been included in the top 100 in Newsweek's 2020 World's Best Hospitals list.
RPA is one of only four Australian hospitals to make the top 100 globally this year, compared with eight last year. It's the second time RPA has been included in the list.
The 2020 list ranks the best 1,500 hospitals in the world, based on medical recommendations, patient surveys and medical performance indicators. It places RPA in the same field as the best hospitals in America, Germany and Switzerland.
Our highly-skilled, compassionate staff are the driving force behind this result. Receiving the recognition for the second year in a row is testament to the continued dedication and resilience of our staff.
"Everything you do each day makes a positive difference to our patients and their families, and what we can achieve together as a healthcare community. It's wonderful to have your commitment and professionalism acknowledged on a global level," said Dr Tim Sinclair, Sydney Local Health District's Director of Operations.
"I'm proud to be part of our world-class healthcare facility. Being in this top 100 list shows that our ability to work through significant changes and demands has been recognised by our local and international peers," Nobby Alcala, RPA General Manager, added.
For the past 135 years, RPA has built a national and international reputation for outstanding clinical care, research, innovation and support. It's one of Australia's premier tertiary referral hospitals and the principal teaching hospital of the University of Sydney. RPA is part of a network of hospitals within the Sydney Local Health District.
