For the third time in four years, CHOP’s Division of Orthopaedics has earned the #1 ranking for orthopaedics, sports medicine and bone health in U.S. News & World Report’s Honor Roll of Best Children’s Hospitals. The 2023-24 ranking is a tribute to the world-class care, innovative treatment and cutting-edge research provided by CHOP’s Orthopaedic team and its many specialty programs and services.
U.S. News also recognized CHOP Orthopaedics – and the hospital as a whole – as #1 in Pennsylvania, and #1 in the Mid-Atlantic Region, which includes New York, New Jersey, Delaware, Pennsylvania, the District of Columbia, Virginia and West Virginia. CHOP has been named #1 in the state and region for the past three years. In addition, U.S. News named CHOP the fourth best children’s hospital in the nation for 2023-24.
When creating its annual rankings, U.S. News relies on clinical data, provided by the nearly 200 pediatric hospitals it surveys, and an annual survey of nearly 11,000 pediatric specialists across the country. This year, U.S. News reviewed infection and complication rates, hospital resources, infection prevention, best practices for care and delivery, and availability of expert opinions.
The widespread recognition of the Division of Orthopaedics — along with dedicated subspecialty programs for sports medicine, spine conditions, thoracic insufficiency syndrome, bone tumors and more — led to the No. 1 ranking.
CHOP has been ranked among the best children’s hospitals in the United States for 17 straight years by U.S. News & World Report; and the No. 1 children’s hospital in state and regional rankings for the past three years.
