Why the rankings matter
To create the 2018-19 rankings, U.S. News surveyed 189 pediatric facilities across the country. The rankings rely on clinical data and on an annual survey of pediatric specialists. The rankings methodology considers clinical outcomes, such as mortality and infection rates, efficiency and coordination of care delivery, and compliance with "best practices.” Surgical success rates, adequacy of nurse staffing, procedure and patient volume, availability of programs for particular illnesses and conditions, and much more were components of the survey.
Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia earned high marks for our dedication and expertise across multiple specialties. At CHOP, your child will benefit from the quality of our treatment, superior nurse-patient ratios, commitment to safety, emphasis on family-centered care, groundbreaking research, and much more.
CHOP ranked #1 in two specialties: Division of Endocrinology and Diabetes and Division of Urology, and Cancer, Neonatology, Orthopaedics, Pulmonology and Gastroenterology & GI Surgery all ranked in the top 3.
