The Best-Equipped Hospitals in Latin America in 2020

We recently released HospiRank 2020, in which we rank the top LatAm hospitals in terms of their equipment. This year we organized the ranking a bit differently. First, we expanded it to include 10 countries rather than 8, and we also adjusted the categories to the following:

  • Best Equipped for Hosting Patients
  • Best Infrastructure for High Procedure Count
  • Highest Count of Basic Surgical Equipment
  • Best Equipped for Accommodating Newborns
  • Best Equipped for Primary Diagnostics
  • Best Installed Base for Treating Cancer
  • Best Equipped for Advanced Diagnostic Imaging
  • Best Equipped for High-Risk Patients

So for each country, HospiRank lists the top 10 hospitals in each of the above categories. The full ranking can be found in a detailed report that we published in October 2020. Unlike previous editions, however, HospiRank 2020 also has substantial market data for sales and marketing teams of medical equipment/device manufacturers. This data includes 2019 counts of equipment spanning 30+ categories for each country we cover, along with 2020 growth, 2021 projected growth and CAGR for 2019-2023 for each category. This data — which comes directly from the hospitals themselves — can help companies with demand forecasting and other sales planning.

The HospiRank 2020 report also has a detailed section on robotic surgery in Latin America that indicates all of the hospitals that have acquired these systems, the make/model of the systems they have and the years in which they acquired them.

While this data can only be obtained by acquiring the report, we did want to share a brief list of some of the top-ranked hospitals.

To create it, we went through HospiRank 2020 and noted the hospitals that appeared in 4 or more of the ranking’s categories, and we list them below.
