Among the top 20 best hospitals in Canada are two of Victoria’s main medical centres: Royal Jubilee Hospital and Victoria General Hospital.
RJH placed #7 on the ranking while VGH clocked in at #12, out of a total 85 hospitals studied by the report.
Each hospital was evaluated based on three factors:
  • Online survey taking hospital recommendations from thousands doctors, health care professionals, and hospital managers,
  • Survey of patient satisfaction with hospitalization, and
  • Medical performance indicators (like data on quality of treatment, hygiene measures, etc.)

The ranking of Canadian hospitals was undertaken as part of a larger global study in which tens of thousands of medical professionals and patients from 11 countries were surveyed between October 2018 and January 2019.
