U.S. News Ranks Cincinnati Children's Among Top Three U.S. Children's Hospitals
Date:5/30/2008

rough the ongoing development and expansion of niche medical services that allow patients with the most difficult-to-treat diseases and conditions to receive the latest in advanced care. The medical center has also received national recognition for its introduction of quality improvement initiatives within patient care programs. These initiatives are resulting in improved treatment and patient outcomes with the added advantage of enhanced cost effectiveness -- a major concern in today's health care industry.

The specialty rankings of this year's America's Best Children's Hospitals were based on a new and improved methodology that weighed a three-part blend of reputation, outcome, and care-related measures such as nursing care, advanced technology, credentialing, and other factors. A detailed description of the methodology can be found online at http://www.usnews.com/pediatrics.

Until last year, U.S. News based its ranking solely on reputation. But in 2007, U.S. News used a new methodology to rank children's hospitals, adding care-related factors and recognition by outside organizations. Last year Cincinnati Children's ranked as the 7th best children's hospital in the nation. In each of the previous two years, Cincinnati Children's was ranked as the 8th best children's hospital in the United States.

Facilities eligible for ranking were largely drawn from members of the National Association of Children's Hospitals and Related Institutions (NACHRI) in either of two categories -- a freestanding children's hospital or a children's "hospital within a hospital" (a large, multidisciplinary pediatric service within a medical center). In addition, several non-NACHRI members were added because of known expertise or at the recommendation of experts.

Of the 143 children's hospitals invited to complete a survey asking for information as detailed as whether a center offers postgraduate fellows
