Commitment to fiscal management, quality care and investment value drive success
KING OF PRUSSIA, Pa., February 16, 2021 — 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 2021. The list measures a company's fiscal management, services provided and its sustained commitment to social responsibility. The ranking is considered the gold standard for corporate reputation.
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 excellence in clinical measures, quality metrics and for its commitment to community service.
As we have in the past, Fortune collaborated with our partner Korn Ferry on this survey of corporate reputations. We began with a universe of about 1,500 candidates: the 1,000 largest U.S. companies ranked by revenue, along with non-U.S. companies in Fortune’s Global 500 database that have revenues of $10 billion or more. We winnowed the assortment to the highest-revenue companies in each industry, a total of 670 in 30 countries. The top-rated companies were picked from that pool of 670; 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. A company’s score must rank in the top half of its industry survey to be listed.
