Wolfson Children’s Hospital in Jacksonville, FL, Ranks in 5 Specialties among U.S. News & World Report’s 2013-14 Best Children’s Hospitals
Date:6/11/2013

Jacksonville, Florida (PRWEB) June 11, 2013

Wolfson Children’s Hospital has been ranked in five out of 10 specialties in U.S. News & World Report’s 2013-14 Best Children’s Hospitals rankings.

Wolfson Children’s Hospital ranked among the top 50 in the following specialties: diabetes & endocrinology (4th year in a row this specialty has been among top 50); neonatology (first time in rankings); orthopedics (first time in rankings); pulmonology (2nd year in a row); and urology (3rd year in a row).

“Wolfson Children’s Hospital deserves high praise,” said Health Rankings Editor Avery Comarow. “Ranking shows the dedication and expertise that Wolfson Children’s 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.”

U.S. News introduced the Best Children’s Hospitals rankings in 2007 to help families of sick children find the best medical care available. The rankings offer families an exclusive look at quality-related information at the individual hospital level.

To gather data, U.S. News used two surveys: a clinical questionnaire sent to 179 pediatric hospitals and, for the reputational assessment, a survey of 150 pediatric specialists and subspecialists in each specialty. The 1,500 physicians were asked where they would send the sickest children in their specialty, setting aside location and expense.

“Wolfson Children’s Hospital, along with our pediatric healthcare partners, Nemours Children’s Clinic, Jacksonville, and the University of Florida College of Medicine—Jacksonville, is thrilled to be named among the t
