Rainbow Ranked as a Top 5 Children's Hospital
CLEVELAND, May 30 /PRNewswire/ -- Rainbow Babies & Children's Hospital at University Hospitals Case Medical Center is once again ranked as a top five children's hospital (#5) by U.S. News & World Report. This year, the first time the publication ranked pediatric subspecialties, Rainbow ranked #2 in neonatal care/NICU and among the top 10 in the country for neurology/neurosurgery and respiratory disorders. Rainbow is in the top 25 for all six subspecialties.
"We are so pleased and proud to be ranked so highly among our peer pediatric institutions," said Michael Farrell, president of Rainbow Babies & Children's Hospital and MacDonald Women's Hospital. "This year, U.S. News evolved their methodology to look at subspecialties, in an effort to show where parents should turn for the best care for their children. These rankings are really an honor and tribute to the dedication of our talented and caring staff, and the NICU ranking is especially exciting for our team."
"Rainbow's division of neonatology has long been revered as the pioneers of the specialty, and with some of the best outcomes in the country for decades and a new state-of-the-future art NICU under construction, we are thrilled to be near the top of this prestigious list," said Avroy A. Fanaroff, M.D., neonatologist and chairman of pediatrics at Rainbow.
As part of UH's Vision 2010 strategic plan, Rainbow's new Quentin & Elisabeth Alexander Neonatal Intensive Care Unit will open in early 2009. The new 40-bed unit will be connected to the current neonatal transitional care unit, and will unite advanced technology, research and clinical services in a home-like environment with private space for parents to sleep at their child's bedside.
"Although Rainbow has a rich history of excellence in neonatology, we
are always looking toward the future, and how we can continue to enhance
the care we provide to our babies," s
