The public healthcare system in Canada is well above average. The hospitals in Canada are top-notch, but since healthcare is government-controlled, services are rationed.
Of all the industries and rankings for your city, nothing should more well-respected and significant than healthcare. Not enough emphasis can be put on the outstanding significance of hospitals.
Recognizing this, Newsweek has partnered with Statista Inc., a global market research and consumer data company, to develop a ranking of Canada’s best hospitals.
The ranking invited tens of thousands of doctors, hospital managers, and other healthcare professionals to participate in an online survey.
