Commitment to fiscal management, quality care and investment value drive success
KING OF PRUSSIA, Pa., January 28, 2020 — Universal Health Services, Inc. (NYSE: UHS), one of the nation’s largest and most respected providers of hospital and healthcare services, is pleased to announce it has once again been selected by Fortune as one of the "World's Most Admired Companies" in 2020. The ranking is considered the gold standard for corporate reputation measuring a company's fiscal management, services provided and commitment to social responsibility.
For over 40 years, UHS has been a leader in the healthcare management industry and is recognized for delivering quality care. National, state and local organizations continue to honor UHS employees and facilities for achieving high outcome clinical measures, quality metrics and for its commitment to community service.
Fortune collaborated with partner Korn Ferry on this survey of corporate reputation. Fortune began with a universe of about 1,500 candidates: the 1,000 largest U.S. companies by revenue, along with non-U.S. companies in Fortune’s Global 500 database that have revenues of $10 billion or more. Fortune winnowed the assortment to the highest-revenue companies in each industry, a total of 680 in 30 countries. The top-rated companies were picked from that pool; the executives who voted work at the companies in that group.
To determine the best-regarded companies in 52 industries, Korn Ferry asked executives, directors, and analysts to rate enterprises in their own industry on nine criteria, from investment value and quality of management and products to social responsibility and ability to attract talent.
