U.S.News & World Report ranks pediatric hospitals according to 10 individual specialties, and this year we are ranked #1 in Cardiology & Heart Surgery, Diabetes & Endocrinology, Gastroenterology, Neonatology, Nephrology, Neurology & Neurosurgery, and Urology. We are ranked #2 in Cancer, #4 in Pulmonology, and #8 in Orthopedics. We’re also proud to report that four of our #1 ranked specialties (Diabetes & Endocrinology, Gastroenterology, Neonatology, and Urology) are earning that distinction for the first time.
As important as these rankings are to families and referring physicians, they are just as important to us, serving as an inspiration to keep striving to be the best. To be consistently listed at the top of the U.S.News rankings is a tribute to the extraordinary work our staff does on a daily basis, and I’d like to take this opportunity to say thank you to every member of the Boston Children’s community for their continued effort to work tirelessly unit every child is well.
