Henry Schein Inc., the Melville health-care supplier, is the only Long Island business to make it onto this year's Fortune magazine list of the world's most-admired companies.

The list included 31 companies based in New York State, out of a total of 358 worldwide, ranked according to what Fortune calls its "nine key attributes of reputation."

Globally, Apple was the most-admired company, while in New York State, the top company was Manhattan-based tobacco giant Philip Morris International, maker of Marlboro cigarettes.

In the health care wholesaler category, Henry Schein ranked No. 1 internationally. It had the highest mark in several criteria -- global competitiveness, social responsibility, management quality, long-term investment, and quality of products and services.

"Our first-place ranking again in the categories of social responsibility and global competitiveness continues to demonstrate that a company truly can 'do well by doing good,' and that an active commitment to corporate social responsibility is good business," Schein chairman and chief executive Stanley M. Bergman said in a statement.

The Fortune list also included information on two Long Island companies, Broadridge Financial Services Inc. and CA Inc., that did not make the most-admired list. Fortune’s website said companies scoring in the top half of their industry survey are listed as “most admired,” and the others are “contenders.”

Broadridge, of Lake Success, competing against companies such as Thomson Reuters, ranked seventh among the 11 companies in its category of financial data services.

CA, of Islandia, came in last among the 11 firms in its category of computer software. Competing against companies such as Intuit, CA came in last in innovation, people management, use of corporate assets, social responsibility, quality of management, long-term investment, quality of products and services, and global competitiveness. It came in second-to last in financial soundness.

Representatives  for CA and Broadridge did not immediately respond to requests for comment Monday.
