Children’s earns high marks in U.S. News & World Report

Once again, Children’s has been recognized as one of the best pediatric hospitals in the country in U.S. News & World Report’s 2012-2013 Best Children’s Hospitals rankings.

For the sixth consecutive year, Children’s was ranked in neonatology, for the care that it provides to the youngest and most fragile patients. Children’s has been ranked in this category since U.S. News began ranking pediatric hospitals in 2007. For the second consecutive year, Children’s was ranked in cardiology and heart surgery, a program that is one of the largest in the region by patient volume.

“Children’s is honored to be recognized again by U.S. News. The listing is a tribute to our skilled and dedicated staff, who are deeply committed to providing children with the best possible care,” said Alan L. Goldbloom, MD, president and CEO of Children’s.

The rankings feature 50 hospitals in each of 10 pediatric specialties: cancer, cardiology and heart surgery, diabetes and endocrinology, gastroenterology, neonatology, nephrology, neurology and neurosurgery, orthopedics, pulmonology, and urology. Eighty hospitals across the country ranked in one or more specialties.
