Six locations selected as Best Children's Hospitals

The Best Children's Hospitals rankings, which rate eligible medical centers in 10 pediatric specialties, are based on hospital-submitted data, including measurements such as survival and complex surgical outcomes, as well as use of best practices, infection prevention, advanced technologies, nursing quality, specialty-specific certifications and services, and the expert opinion of specialists in the field.

This year’s rankings will be published in the U.S. News & World Report’s Best Hospitals 2022 Guidebook, available in stores Oct. 5.

“When choosing a hospital for a sick child, many parents want specialized expertise, convenience and caring medical professionals,” said Ben Harder, chief of health analysis and managing editor at U.S. News. “The Best Children's Hospitals rankings have always highlighted hospitals that excel in specialized care. As the pandemic continues to affect travel, finding high-quality care close to home has never been more important.”
