35 healthcare organizations named to Fortune's 'The World's Most Admired Companies'

Fortune published its annual list of "The World's Most Admired Companies," and 35 healthcare companies made the cut.

Fortune compiled the list in collaboration with Korn Ferry Hay Group. The partners started with about 1,500 candidate companies, including the 1,000 largest U.S. companies ranked by revenue, along with non-U.S. companies in Fortune's Global 500 database with revenues of $10 billion or more. They then narrowed the pool of companies down to the highest-revenue companies in each industry for a total of 680 companies in 28 countries. The top-rated companies were selected from the pool of 680.
