25 most valuable healthcare brands in the world

In the age of consumerism, the strength of an organization's brand is becoming more closely linked to customer preference, loyalty, trust and overall organizational performance.

Each year, valuation and strategy consultancy Brand Finance assesses and ranks the value of thousands of companies' brands from across the globe. Brand Finance first evaluates brands to determine their power and strength. It uses a variety of metrics to do so, including marketing investment, familiarity, loyalty, staff satisfaction and corporate reputation. Brand strength is used to determine what proportion of a business' revenue is contributed by the brand, which is then used to determine the brand's value.
