U.S. News Media Group named Children’s one of America’s Best Children’s Hospitals. This is the fifth time Children’s was ranked among the nation’s best in neonatology and we are excited to add cardiology and heart surgery, pulmonology and cancer to the list in 2011-12.
It is an honor to receive this distinction in four specialties and it is a reflection of the expertise and dedication that our physicians, nurses, and staff bring to patients and families every day.
The U.S. News rankings give Children’s high marks for patient volumes, safety, and overall outcomes in each of the clinical areas on both the Minneapolis and St. Paul campuses. Children’s also received high marks for nurse-to-patient staffing levels that continue to be among the nation’s highest, and for its designation as a Magnet hospital for excellence in nursing, bestowed by the American Nurses Credentialing Center.
