MUSC Children's Hospital named best in the state

U.S. News & World Report has ranked University of Iowa Stead Family Children's Hospital in six specialties in the new 2017-18 Best Children's Hospitals rankings published online today. Children's National was also named to the coveted Honor Roll, a distinction given to the top performing children's hospitals in the country. "Kids get better when they receive the expert care Children's provides, and we believe that every child in Georgia deserves access to that kind of care".

This year, the University of MI hospitals and health centers also achieved Magnet status - the highest institutional honor awarded for nursing excellence - from the American Nurses Credentialing Center.

St. Jude Children's Research Hospital officials also shared their excitement to be ranked as the leading hospital in pediatric cancer.

Still, UI Children's Hospital CEO Scott Turner said his organization is proud to be ranked in more than half the assessed specialties.

UI Stead Family Children's Hospital ranked No. 20 in neonatology, No. 21 in nephrology, No. 34 in cancer, No. 36 in urology, No. 45 in pulmonology, and No. 48 in cardiology/heart surgery.

The current methodology combines clinical and operational data, results from a reputational survey of board-certified pediatric specialists, and supplemental information from resources such as the National Cancer Institute.

Rankings were based on criteria like clinical outcomes, patient volume, infection control, adequacy of nurse staffing, efficiency and coordination of care delivery, and compliance with best practices.

In the 2017-18 rankings, 82 hospitals ranked among the top 50 in at least one specialty. "As we work to set the standard for pediatric cancer care, recognition such as this reaffirms that our focus and efforts are in the right place".

According to U.S. News, the Best Children's Hospitals rankings are designed "to identify hospitals that provide the highest quality of care for children with the most serious or complicated medical conditions".

Connecticut Children's was one of the top 50 pediatric facilities that U.S. News recognized. With a network of Johns Hopkins All Children's Outpatient Care centers and collaborative care provided by All Children's Specialty Physicians at regional hospitals, Johns Hopkins All Children's brings care closer to home.
