Vote for Children’s Minnesota in U.S. News & World Report Hospitals Ranking

U.S. News and & World Report is a recognized leader in consumer advice and rankings, including hospitals and health systems. They provide the well-respected badges consumers and health care providers look for and trust when making health choices.

To celebrate the amazing patient outcomes made possible by our kid experts, we’d love your help in earning a spot on their list. This year, voting is taking place on Doximity, an online networking service for medical professionals. Read on to learn how you can vote.

Who can vote

Board-certified physicians in one of the 11 pediatric specialties ranked by U.S. News & World Report and who have a Doximity account are eligible to vote. If you are not currently a Doximity user, you make an account anytime. The sign-up process is similar to other social media platforms like LinkedIn and Facebook, just with a few additional verification steps.

How to vote

  1. If you aren’t already a user, create a Doximity account. It is free. Click here for step-by-step instructions. Make sure your current board certifications are in your Doximity profile.
  2. Log in to Doximity.
  3. Click on the U.S. News & World Report graphic on the homepage.
  4. Vote! The survey asks Doximity users to name the hospitals that provide the best care in their respective specialty, without consideration to location or cost. Pediatric specialists are able to list up to ten hospitals. The order in which you list the hospitals is arbitrary and does not affect whether they are ranked or not.

When to vote

Voting begins in February 2022 and runs through March 2022.
