DETROIT (WWJ) — Children’s Hospital of Michigan named among the best in the country in pediatric specialties, according to U.S. News and World Report’s 2013-14 ranking of Best Children’s Hospitals.
The Detroit hospital has won awards before and has ranked before, but U.S. News and World Report this time says there are seven of ten categories that the hospital ranks highest in, including Cancer, Cardiology & Heart Surgery, Nephrology, Neurology & Neurosurgery, Orthopedics, Pulmonology, and Urology.
CHM Chief Executive Officer Dr. Herman Gray credits “the relentless dedication, commitment and expertise of our entire health care team who care for the children and families we serve.”
Meantime, The University of Michigan’s C.S. Mott Children’s Hospital also made the list, ranking in all 10 specialties evaluated.
“We are extremely proud that we continue to get high rankings from U.S. News & World Report for the tremendous care we provide to our patients and families at C.S. Mott Children’s Hospital,” says Ora H. Pescovitz, M.D., executive vice president for Medical Affairs at the University of Michigan and CEO of the U-M Health System.
Pescovitz adds, “We strive for an ideal patient care experience, so it’s wonderful to receive recognition for our efforts and to be ranked year after year among the nation’s best in all the specialties.”
C.S. Mott’s highest ranking was in heart care and heart surgery, 6th in the nation.
The publication says scoring is determined on patient outcomes, and the resources each hospital has available for pediatric care. It says the rankings began in 2007 to help families of sick children find the best medical care available.
