the dr. Hugo Mendoza Children’s Hospital was recognized as one of the best in the region in the ranking of “Best Hospitals in Latin America 2021”, and was the first in the country to receive this award.
The assessment was conducted by America Economic Intelligence, which conducts annual measurements that include quality, safety, user experience, efficiency and prestige.
The list consisted of 67 hospitals from 11 Latin American countries, which represented a challenging measurement year given the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic.
This year, the most anticipated hospital entity ranking was conducted for medical specialties. The areas of cardiology and cardiothoracic surgery, oncology and hemato-oncology, pediatrics and gynaecology-obstetrics were included. In pediatrics, 55 centers were evaluated and Dr. Hugo Mendoza Pediatric Hospital occupies the 14th position of the top 20.
“It is an achievement of a country to be positioned in the select group of the best health centers in the region and to share the list with centers such as: Albert Einstein Hospital in São Paulo, Alemana Clinic in Santiago Chile , the Italian Hospital of Buenos Aires and other leading health centers in Latin America is unprecedented in the Dominican Republic,” said Dr. Dhamelisse Then, director of Hugo Mendoza Hospital.
He said Hugo Mendoza Pediatric Hospital is and will continue to be a national and international benchmark in the health sector because of its human capital. He said it pays special attention to indicators that focus on patient experience, safety and efficiency.
