Fortune's most admired healthcare companies

On Jan. 31, Fortune released its World's Most Admired Companies list, which included healthcare companies. 

The list, a partnership between Fortune and global management consulting firm Korn Ferry, follows an examination 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. Candidates were then narrowed to the highest-revenue companies in each industry, for a total of 660 in 29 countries. The top-rated companies were chosen from among the 660 companies.

For the list, executives who work at the 660 companies, as well as directors and analysts, rated enterprises in their respective industry on nine criteria ranging from investment value to ability to attract talent. Companies that ranked in the top half of their industry survey were listed. 

Fortune also published a Top 50 All-Star list of companies most highly regarded across industries. For this list, Korn Ferry asked 3,720 executives, directors and securities analysts who had responded to the industry surveys to choose the 10 companies they most admired. The list they picked from had companies that ranked in the top 25% in last year's surveys, plus those that finished in the top 20% of their industry. Respondents could vote for any company in any industry. More information about the methodology is available here.
