It is thanks to their commitment and collective efforts that we are now recognised as one of the best hospitals in the world.”

Cleveland Clinic Abu Dhabi CEO, Jorge Guzman, M.D., said: “We are delighted to be positioned so highly on this prestigious list, a veritable who’s who of the best hospitals from around the world. The rankings are compiled by collating feedback from medical healthcare professionals and patients, relating to two key objectives of ours: to be the best employer in the healthcare sector and the most trusted provider of patient care in the UAE and the wider region. This recognition is a testament to our continuous focus and commitment to bring world-class care closer to home, to advance the UAE healthcare sector, and to always put patients first.”

Cleveland Clinic Abu Dhabi and other top hospitals were recognized for their ability to deliver high-quality patient care and conduct critical medical research despite the ongoing global pandemic.
