The U.S. News & World Report released its 2015-16 Best Children’s Hospitals rankings, highlighting the top 50 U.S. hospitals in each of these pediatric specialties: cancer, cardiologyand heart surgery, diabetes and endocrinology, gastroenterology and GI surgery, neonatology, nephrology, neurology and neurosurgery, orthopaedics, pulmonology, and urology.
Most of each hospital’s score relied on patient outcomes and care-related resources. U.S. News garnered clinical data from a detailed questionnaire sent to 184 pediatric hospitals. A sixth of the score came from annual surveys of pediatric specialists and subspecialists in each specialty in 2013, 2014 and 2015. They were asked where they would send the sickest children in their specialty, setting aside considerations of location and expense.
