Three Israeli hospitals were featured in a new list of the world’s top cardiology centers published by Newsweek.

Sheba Medical Center at Tel Hashomer ranked No. 44 out of the top 50, and Hadassah University Medical Center and Tel Aviv Sourasky Medical Center were in the 51-200 list, which was sorted alphabetically.

“In our nine decades, Newsweek has covered all aspects of health care — scientific challenges, economic disruption, the occasional medical miracle and most of all, what these developments mean for our readers,” the magazine’s global editor-in-chief, Nancy Cooper, wrote in an introduction. “As part of that commitment, we’ve partnered with Statista Inc., the global market research and consumer data firm, to rank the world’s best hospitals.”

The list of top hospitals, which featured several Israeli facilities, was published in September.

This latest ranking includes the best hospitals for cardiology, oncology, endocrinology, neurology, gastroenterology and orthopedics.

Hadassah's Sharett Institute of Oncology made the list of top oncology centers. No other Israeli hospitals made it on the other lists.

"The choice of the Cardiology Department at Hadassah is gratifying and reflects extensive activity in all areas of cardiology, from innovative treatments through groundbreaking research to the training of the next generation of cardiologists from Israel and around the world,” said Ofer Amir, Head of Hadassah’s Heart Institute.

The top five cardiology centers on Newsweek’s list were all from the United States:

1 - the Corrigan Minehan Heart Center at Massachusetts General Hospital

2 - the Miller Family Heart, Vascular & Thoracic Institute at the Cleveland Institute in Ohio

3 - the Department of Cardiovascular Medicine at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester

4 - the Mount Sinai Heart Center at Mount Sinai Hospital in New York

5 - the Heart & Vascular Center at the Brigham And Women’s Hospital in Boston
