The Children's Hospital of Philadelphia Earns No. 1 Ranking on U.S. News & World Report’s Best Children’s Hospital List
Date:6/10/2013

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.

The annual U.S. News rankings highlight the top 50 U.S. hospitals in each of these pediatric specialties: cancer, cardiology & heart surgery, diabetes & endocrinology, gastroenterology & GI surgery, neonatology, nephrology, neurology & neurosurgery, orthopedics, pulmonology, and urology.

“We are humbled to be recognized again by U.S. News and World Report with a number one ranking among the nation’s children’s hospitals. This recognition is a tribute to the exceptional work of our staff and their tireless dedication to our patients,” said Steven M. Altschuler, MD, chief executive officer of The Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia. “As we mark this important milestone, it’s an opportunity to renew our commitment to improve the health of the children who enter our doors, as well as those across the country or the world whom we may never meet.”

“The Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia deserves high praise,” said Health Rankings Editor Avery Comarow. “Ranking shows the dedication and expertise that CHOP brings to the care of children who need those qualities the most. We think it is important to identify and call attention to pediatric centers like this one.”

The U.S. News survey methodology combines clinical data points from 179 pediatric centers with a separate reputational score derived from a survey in which 1,500 pediatric specialists – 150 in each specialty – were asked to which hospital they would send the sickest children.
