June 27, 2017: Boston Children's Hospital Ranked #1 Again!

Big shout out to our MASCO member Boston Children's Hospital for its 4th consecutive year as the number 1 ranked Pediatric Hospital in the United States by U.S. News and World Report.

The report, released Tuesday, places Boston Children’s Hospital at the top of its honor roll for 2017-18, with Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia and Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center rounding out the top three. Boston Children’s was also ranked No. 1 in five of ten pediatric specialities: gastroenterology, nephrology (kidney function), neurology, orthopedics, and urology.

The rankings are developed by compiling data from surveys sent to hospitals and pediatric doctors across the country, according to U.S. News and World Report. Each hospital’s clinical outcomes, coordination of care, and amount of resources were among the factors considered.
