San Diego's Rady Children's Hospital Climbs Charts In National Ranking

Big recognition: Pittsburgh's Children's Hospital named among top pediatrics hospitals in US

Boston Children's Hospital is still the best pediatric hospital in the country, according to the latest rankings from U.S. News and World Report. As a top-ranked children's hospital by U.S. News & World Report, we are a leader in world-class, nurturing care and extraordinary outcomes in every pediatric and obstetric specialty. "Validations such as these rankings are a testament to the tremendous caliber of the physicians, nurses, technicians and other health care providers and staff who are driven each day to provide the best care possible to the children and families they serve", he said.

"As we approach the debut of our newly expanded hospital this year, these rankings affirm the quality of specialty care that we are so proud to provide our patients", said Christopher G. Dawes, Packard Children's president and chief executive officer. "This recognition is an outstanding external acknowledgment for our institution, but more importantly for the dedicated St. Jude faculty and staff who devote their time, talent and energy to the patients we care for every day".

Affiliated with Columbia and Cornell universities, the hospital has consistently landed in the top rankings since the survey was launched 11 years ago. The hospital placed second in diabetes and endocrinology and in pulmonology.

The rankings highlight 10 specialties at pediatric hospitals across the country including cancer, cardiology and heart surgery.

The 11th annual rankings highlight the top 50 US pediatric hospitals in each of 10 specialties: cancer, cardiology and heart surgery, diabetes and endocrinology, gastroenterology and GI surgery, neonatology, nephrology, neurology and neurosurgery, orthopedics, pulmonology, and urology.

Bristol-Myers Squibb Children's Hospital of RWJ Hospital is ranked 39th nationally in the field of pediatric urology. The rankings are based on several factors, according to U.S. News. Their responses were also combined with those from similar surveys conducted between 2015 and 2016.

St. Jude is the only National Cancer Institute-designated Comprehensive Care Center devoted exclusively to children, and the hospital has received designated Magnet status by the American Nurses Credentialing Center, the highest honor granted to nursing services. Each of these three major areas determined up to one-third of a hospital's score, U.S. News said.

Boston Children's Hospital is home to the world's largest research enterprise based at a pediatric medical center, where its discoveries have benefited both children and adults since 1869.
