Boston Children’s Tops U.S. News’ List of 50 Best Pediatric Hospitals Again

NEC member Boston Children’s Hospital was recently ranked first for the fifth straight year in the U.S. News and Report’s 12th annual list of best children’s hospitals. The rankings are based on metrics like patient outcomes, patient safety, number of fellowship programs, nurse-to-patient ratio, and availability of specialists and advanced services.

Boston Children’s Hospital ranked first in three of the ten specialties: neurology/neurosurgery, nephrology, and orthopedics. Additionally, the hospital placed second in cardiology and heart surgery, diabetes and endocrinology, and gastroenterology (GI) and GI surgery.

Boston Children’s President and CEO Sandra L. Fenwick said, “In a time when health care is ever-changing, achieving the number one ranking reminds all of us at Boston Children’s what inspires us: it’s about caring for children, digging deeper research, and finding new ways to make our care even better.”

The New England Council applauds Boston Children’s Hospital for its top ranking and commends its continued excellence in pediatric care.  Read more on the Boston Children’s Hospital Website  and Boston.com .
