It isn’t enough for a hospital to simply say that it’s the best. In health care, the stakes are high and in pediatric health care the stakes are even higher. Third-party endorsements, working from the same data from multiple hospitals, are the best way to ensure a hospital’s care is truly world-class.

Phoenix Children’s distinguished itself for high quality care, earning a spot on the U.S. News & World Report list of Best Children’s Hospitals for the fourth consecutive year. Most recently, the hospital earned special recognition for four specialties, highlighted for their quality of care and reputation among pediatricians nationwide:

  • Cancer
  • Cardiology and Heart Surgery
  • Neurology and Neurosurgery
  • Orthopedics

“Patients at Phoenix Children’s receive an exceptional level of care,” said Robert L. Meyer, President and CEO of Phoenix Children’s Hospital. “As Arizona’s only comprehensive children’s hospital, and one of the largest in the country, we not only provide access to a wider variety of specialty services, but every specialty has the depth of knowledge and experience to ensure the highest clinical quality and patient safety. We’re thrilled to be included so prominently in such a prestigious ranking.”

U.S. News results are based on both hospital quality data and reputation among pediatricians nation wide. Rankings reflect health outcomes, volume, staffing and availability of subspecialists. Phoenix Children’s is the only hospital in Arizona to be honored.

“At community hospitals, pediatrics is a very small portion of the patient volume and revenue, so their focus is largely elsewhere” explains Meyer. “At Phoenix Children’s, every doctor, nurse, technician, building, administrator, process and quality measure is 100% focused on children.”
