Sydney Adventist Hospital ranked in the Newsweek World's Best Specialized Hospitals 2023 survey
Sydney Adventist Hospital has once again been ranked in the Newsweek World's Best Specialized Hospitals 2023 survey for Oncology, while also being ranked for the first time for Cardiology.
The Newsweek ranking features the top 300 hospitals for cardiology and 250 for oncology, with Sydney Adventist Hospital listed in both categories.
The research included 20 countries and was conducted by market research company Statista in partnership with Newsweek. Data was gathered from three sources: recommendations by doctors via an online survey from these countries, publicly available patient satisfaction survey results, and publicly available medical KPIs on hospitals.
Clinical Professor Gavin Marx, Clinical Director, San Integrated Cancer Centre, said that the Hospital is delighted with the news.
"This is the second time we've made it into Newsweek's world top ranking oncology centres, and it is wonderful to see we are also climbing up the ranks and coming in higher than last year," he said.
“Over many years, we have developed a high-volume cancer service at the San run by some of the most outstanding health professionals in NSW. It's clear that our highly skilled team and constant innovation have led to excellent patient outcomes and an impressive reputation in Australia and internationally."
“We are consistently leading the way in our State surveys as well," said Prof Marx. "For three consecutive years the San Integrated Cancer Centre has achieved some of the highest ratings in the Bureau of Health Information patient survey, conducted in partnership with the Cancer Institute of NSW.”
Key features of the multidisciplinary San Integrated Cancer Centre include state-of-the-art imaging, a full range of high-quality surgical and reconstructive services, comprehensive medical oncology services, expert onsite cancer genetics, extensive cancer support services and patient navigators.
The co-located Icon Cancer Centre Wahroonga provides the latest in radiation therapy technology and techniques for all cancer types.
Providing patients with access to novel medical therapies, the Centre's Clinical Trials Unit participates in international trials in breast, colorectal, prostate, melanoma and other cancers. Patients also have access to lifestyle programs designed to reduce their cancer risk.
Adventist HealthCare Limited (AHCL), CEO Brett Goods says he is incredibly proud of the excellent work by all members of the San's cancer teams, and their recognition in an international context.
"It is wonderful to see us appear in the Newsweek ranking again this year for oncology. I would also like to commend our San cardiology team who have been ranked in the world's top cardiology centres for the first time. This is a truly outstanding achievement,” Mr Goods explained.
The San has established a reputation as one of NSW leading providers of private cardiac care, since 1979, when it was the first private hospital in the State to offer a complete private cardiothoracic service with a Cath lab and full open heart surgery program.
Head of Department for San Cardiology, Dr Elizabeth Shaw, explained how delighted she was with the news that the department was ranked 200 out of 300 in Newsweek’s Top Specialized Hospitals - Cardiology. “The San is fortunate to have an outstanding cohort of Cardiologists, supported by specialist nurses, allied health and other support staff, which enable us to undertake complex cardiology procedures and provide the best care for our patients” Dr Shaw explained.
“The San has been leading the way in private cancer and heart care for decades,” Mr Goods explained. What sets us apart is that we not only provide our patients with access to NSW’s leading health professionals and modalities, but also our whole person approach to patient care. Our health professionals don't simply treat conditions; they take a multidisciplinary approach to personalised care.
When you come to the San, you know there is a team of the best experts behind you every step of the way and it's nice to see us being consistently recognised for providing our community with outstanding care.”
