Best in Texas. 4th in the U.S.
Texas Children’s Hospital again ranks fourth among the approximately 180 pediatric centers surveyed by U.S. News & World Report in their 2016-17 edition of Best Children’s Hospitals. Consistently ranked as a national leader, Texas Children’s is one of only 11 children’s hospitals to achieve the Honor Roll designation nationally, and the only hospital in Texas – and the southern U.S. – awarded this distinction. In the last 10 years, no other pediatric hospital in the state has ever achieved an overall ranking as high as Texas Children’s.
“These rankings continue to reflect the steadfast commitment Texas Children’s has to providing the highest quality patient care and outcomes for the families we serve,” says Mark A. Wallace, president and CEO of Texas Children’s.
This year, the Pulmonology department ranks #1 in the country. We also have six subspecialties in the top five, three of which rank #2 nationally.
- #1 Pulmonology
- #2 Cancer
- #2 Cardiology and heart surgery
- #2 Neurology and neurosurgery
- #3 Nephrology (kidney disorders)
- #5 Urology
- #6 Gastroenterology & GI Surgery
In a process that has become increasingly rigorous and data driven, the U.S. News rankings enable hospitals to look in the mirror and scrutinize themselves.
On behalf of sick children and their families, Texas Children’s uses these rankings as an opportunity to develop a blueprint to be the world’s best and highest quality pediatric health care institution.
Our generous donors and supporters help Texas Children’s achieve these outstanding national rankings and make so many of our successes possible. Thank you for all you do to help us keep our promise to provide the very best care to the patients and families we serve.
