Penn State Hershey Children’s Hospital has been ranked in five specialties in U.S. News & World Report’s 2013-14 Best Children’s Hospitals rankings.
Penn State Hershey Children’s Hospital ranked in cancer, urology, orthopedics, neurology and neurosurgery, and cardiology and heart surgery—two more specialties than last year. Children’s Hospital first made the Best Children’s Hospitals list in 2008.
The new Best Children’s Hospitals list is the first to be released since Penn State Hershey opened its new 263,000-square-foot Children’s Hospital building in February.
The rankings highlight the top 50 U.S. hospitals in each of these pediatric specialties: cancer, cardiology and heart surgery, diabetes and endocrinology, gastroenterology, neonatology, nephrology, neurology and neurosurgery, orthopedics, pulmonology, and urology. Eighty-seven hospitals across the country ranked in one or more specialties.
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.
