U.S. News Best Children's Hospitals 2012-13
We are proud to report that Cohen Children's Medical Center has been ranked among America's best 50 Children's Hospitals according the most recent rankings released on Tuesday, June 5, 2012, by U.S. News and World Report . The publication's pediatric rankings were published on its website and will appear in the "Best Hospitals" print guide, available on newsstands August 28th.
Now in its sixth year, "Best Children's Hospitals" collects clinical and operational data from a lengthy survey. The survey asks hundreds of questions about survival rates, nurse staffing, subspecialty availability and many more pieces of critical information difficult or impossible for those in charge of a child's care to find on their own. The data from the survey is combined with recommendations from pediatric subspecialists on the hospitals they consider best for children.
Over 178 hospitals submitted information and U.S. News ranked the top 50 nationwide in 10 categories. We were among the top fifty in SEVEN clinical categories: Cancer (#50), Diabetes/Endocrinology (#47), Neonatology (#35), Nephrology (#46), Neurology/Neurosurgery (#48), Pulmonary (#29) and Urology (#16). All staff members are to be commended for contributing to our performance and these rankings reflect your commitment to excellence, quality and compassion to provide the very best care for our children. This is but the beginning of our journey to ascendancy and already puts us in the elite category of children’s hospitals nationwide.
