Annual ranking of the 50 best hospitals and clinics in France

The newspaper Le point publishes its ranking of the best French hospitals. Toulouse, Bordeaux and Lille University Hospitals occupy the first places.


The annual ranking of the 50 best hospitals and clinics in France by "Le Point" has been published! Results: University public hospitals occupy the best positions in this ranking and are in the majority in the ranking.


Thus, three university hospitals (CHU) took over the podium:

In first place: Toulouse University Hospital (Haute-Garonne)

In second place: Bordeaux University Hospital (Gironde)

In third place: Lille University Hospital (North).


Next come the university hospitals of Strasbourg (Bas-Rhin) in 4th place, the Hôpital de la Pitié-Salpêtrière (Paris) in 5th place, the University Hospital of Nantes (Loire-Atlantique) in 6th place, Montpellier University Hospital (Hérault) in 7th place, Grenoble University Hospital (Isère) in 8th place, Rennes University Hospital (Ille-et-Vilaine) in 9th place and Nancy University Hospital (Meurthe-et-Moselle) in 10th place in the ranking.

Public and private non-profit hospitals are still able to do well and climb up the rankings alongside university hospitals. The journalists at Le Points salute the good results of the Institut mutualiste Montsouris (Paris), Saint-Joseph Hospital (Paris), Saint-Joseph Hospital (Marseille), Valenciennes Hospital (North), La-Roche-Sur-Yon Hospital (Vendée) and the Centre hospitalier de Colmar (Haut-Rhin). The Institut Curie (Paris) is also ranked first in the rankings for the treatment of breast cancer but also gynaecological cancers.

Lille, Reunion Island and Lyon at the top of the maternity ranking

This year, Le Point also focused on maternity wards. For high-risk childbirth, the maternity hospitals in the first places are those of CHU Jeanne-de-Flandre (Lille, Nord), CHU Sud-Réunion (La Réunion), Hôpitaux Nord Croix-Rousse in Lyon (3ème) and Hôpitaux Cochin in Paris (4ème).


The selection criteria

The ranking of hospitals was based on several criteria. The journalists of the point thus considered as "good" a hospital that offers good hospital teams, that works fast, that receives patients and their relatives in a "pleasant" way, but also that offers the widest possible range of activities, that has state-of-the-art equipment and that combines the most common medical activities with more advanced medical activities.
