Philadelphia, PA (PRWEB) June 11, 2013

The Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP) earned the number one ranking in the 2013-14 U.S. News & World Report Honor Roll of Best Children’s Hospitals announced today. In addition to the Honor Roll ranking, CHOP programs ranked within the top four in each of the ten specialty areas evaluated in the U.S. News survey.
