U.S.News & World Report ranks Boston Children’s #1 in seven out of 10 specialities

James Mandell, MD, CEO

U.S.News & World Report ranks pediatric hospitals according to 10 individual specialties. This year we are ranked #1 in more specialties than any other pediatric hospital, including Cardiology & Heart Surgery, Diabetes & Endocrinology, Gastroenterology, Neonatology, Nephrology, Neurology & Neurosurgery and Urology. We are ranked #2 in Cancer, #4 in Pulmonology and #8 in Orthopedics.

As important as these rankings are to families and referring physicians, they are just as important to us, serving as an inspiration to keep striving to be the best. To be consistently listed at the top of the U.S.News rankings is a tribute to the extraordinary work our staff does on a daily basis, and I’d like to take this opportunity to thank every member of the Boston Children’s community for their continued effort to work tirelessly until every child is well.
