Boston Children’s ranked #1 again

James Mandell, MD, CEO

The 2012-13 edition of U.S.News & World Report’s “Best Children’s Hospitals” rankings has been released, and we’re proud to announce that Boston Children’s Hospital is ranked #1 on the Honor Roll and in the top four of all 10 specialties ranked.

We’re ranked first in Cardiology and Heart Surgery, Nephrology, and Neurology and Neurosurgery; second in Cancer, Diabetes and Endocrinology, Gastroenterology and Urology; third in Neonatology and Orthopedics; and fourth in Pulmonology.

Boston Children’s was the only hospital in New England named to the U.S.News Honor Roll.

The ranking reflects the dedication of our caregivers, researchers, staff, volunteers and referring doctors across Boston Children’s community of care, and speaks to the collective commitment to improving the quality of outcomes for each and every family that comes through our doors.

In honor of that dedication we made a brief video showcasing some of our amazing patients and staff.

We’re proud of the recognition, and of the hard-working people who earned it. If you’re proud of Boston Children’s too, please share this video on your Facebook page, through Twitter and blogs, and let the world know what being part of the Boston Children’s family means to you.
