About the Rankings

The U.S. News rankings were developed to help patients, families and physicians determine the hospitals that provide the best care for serious or complicated medical conditions or procedures. The rankings recognize the top 50 children’s hospitals in 10 medical specialties, determined based on a number of criteria, including:

  • Hospital survival rates.
  • Nurse staffing.
  • Sub-specialist availability.

In addition to the data, pediatric specialists were asked to recommend the hospitals they consider best for children with challenging problems.
