PHILADELPHIA, June 18 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The Children's Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP) has been ranked first in Cancer, Diabetes and Endocrine Disorders, Neonatal Care, Respiratory Disorders and Urology in U.S. News Media Group's edition of America's Best Children's Hospitals, published online at www.usnews.com/childrenshospitals and featured in the August issue of U.S. News & World Report, available on newsstands starting July 21.

Rather than issuing an overall general pediatrics ranking this year, U.S. News & World Report issued a "US News score" for each of 10 specialties ranked based on methodology weighing a three-part blend of reputation, outcome, and care-related measures such as nursing care, advanced technology, credentialing, and other factors.

CHOP was ranked number one in more specialties than any other hospital and is the only hospital that scored in the top three of all 10 specialties.

CHOP ranked #1: Cancer, Diabetes and Endocrine Disorders, Neonatal Care, Respiratory Disorders, Urology

CHOP ranked #2: Digestive Disorders, Heart and Heart Surgery, Kidney Disorders, Neurology and Neurosurgery

CHOP ranked #3 in: Orthopedics

Additionally, CHOP was the only pediatric hospital in the Tri-state area named to U.S. News & World Report's Honor Roll.

Altschuler, M.D., president and chief executive officer, The Children's Hospital of Philadelphia. "We are humbled by this ranking and recommit ourselves daily to every child affected by our work."
