Children's Hospital Boston Ranked Among the
Country's Top Pediatric Hospitals
Children's Hospital Boston has again been listed
as one of the top pediatric hospitals in the country, according
to US News & World Report. The July 12 ''America's Best
Hospitals'' issue relied on surveys of physicians nationwide
to determine the rankings. Since the magazine began ranking
hospitals 15 years ago, Children's Hospital Boston has consistently
been among the top hospitals. This year, Children's Hospital
Boston is ranked second nationally and remains the number one
pediatric hospital in New England. The reputational score of
the hospital climbed from last year, from 55.4 percent to 55.8
''This endorsement is a testament to the incredible dedication
and work done by the caregivers, employees and volunteers of
Children's Hospital Boston,'' said Dr. James Mandell, president
and CEO of Children's Hospital Boston. ''This honor recognizes
our expertise in improving the health and well-being of children
across the state, New England, and throughout the world.''
The annual issue of the magazine ranked 117 top medical centers
in 17 specialties. The methodology for the rankings was devised
in 1993 by the National Opinion Research Center (NORC) at the
University of Chicago, and today the NORC carries out and refines
the methodology. Pediatric rankings are based solely on reputational
surveys, and the NORC surveyed 150 randomly selected pediatricians
who were asked to name the five hospitals they considered to
be the best in their specialty.
According to US News, the purpose of the ''America's Best Hospitals''
issue is to assist consumers in identifying medical institutions
known to demonstrate the highest level of expertise in diagnosing,
treating, or managing difficult medical conditions.
Children's Hospital Boston is the nation's premier pediatric
medical center. Founded in 1869 as a 20-bed hospital for children,
today it is a 300-bed comprehensive center for pediatric and
adolescent health care grounded in the values of excellence
in patient care and sensitivity to the complex needs and diversity
of children and families. More than 100 outpatient specialty
clinics are located at Children's. Children's Hospital Boston
is the primary pediatric teaching affiliate of Harvard Medical
School, home to the world's leading pediatric research enterprise,
and the largest provider of health care to the children of Massachusetts.
