U.S. News & World Report has ranked University of Iowa Stead Family Children's Hospital in six specialties in the new 2017-18 Best Children's Hospitals list published online June 27. In the 2017-18 rankings, 81 of the 187 hospitals surveyed were ranked in at least one of the 10 specialties.

"Our compassionate team members at UVA Children's Hospital provide high-quality care in multidisciplinary groups that include physicians with specialty expertise", said Pamela M. Sutton-Wallace, chief executive officer of UVA Medical Center and its Children's Hospital. "That is accomplished by our dedicated staff going above and beyond every single day". Joseph Sanzari Children's Hospital, part of Hackensack, is ranked 45th in the field of pediatric neurology and neurosurgery.

Boston Children's has the largest research program at a pediatric medical center in the world, according to the hospital, with more than 1,100 scientists within its community.

The rankings also considered responses to a survey of more than 3,000 pediatric specialists, who were asked to name up to 10 hospitals they consider best in their specialty for children with serious or hard medical problems, U.S. News said. According to PR Newswire, hospitals' pediatric cancer scores were based on certain measures of clinical care, with 85 percent of every hospital's score coming from data gathered through a detailed U.S. News clinical survey of pediatric hospitals.

The Best Children's Hospitals rankings take into account objective measurements, such as clinical outcomes, compliance with best practices, patient volume, infection control, adequacy of nurse staffing, and efficiency and coordination of care. It was second for the categories of cancer, cardiology and heart surgery, diabetes and neonatal care, and it was third in pulmonology, which focuses on the respiratory system.

UCLA Mattel Children's Hospital, which is located in the Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center, has been consistently recognized for broad excellence since the Best Children's Hospitals rankings were introduced in 2007. Texas Children's Hospital and Johns Hopkins Children's Center round out the top five.

The pediatric centers ranked in Best Children's Hospitals deliver exceptional care and deserve to be recognized for their commitment, says Avery Comarow, health rankings editor for U.S. News.
