Boston’s Children’s Hospital was named the best pediatric hospital in the country by U.S. News and World Report for the fifth year in a row on Tuesday.
“It is certainly an honor to be named the number one pediatric hospital in the nation by U.S. News & World Report. This continued recognition speaks to the dedication of our entire staff,” Sandra L. Fenwick, president of Boston Children’s Hospital, said in a statement.
The rankings are determined by compiling data from surveys sent to hospitals and pediatric doctors across the country. Each hospital is also examined across 10 specialities to see how well they deal with specialized, as well as general, care, according to U.S. News and World Report.
Boston Children’s was also ranked No.1 in five of the 10 specialities: gastroenterology, nephrology, neurology, orthopedics, and urology.
The hospital was ranked as second best in cardiology, neonatology, pediatric cancer, and pediatric diabetes, and third best for its pulmonology care.
“It is our mission to provide the best experience and outcomes possible to every family that walks through our doors,” said Fenwick.
The Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia was ranked as second best with the Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center taking the title of third best.
