U.S. News & World Report has named Children’s National Health System to the prestigious Honor Roll of the 2015-16 Best Children’s Hospitals rankings. This is the first time Children’s National has been listed on the Honor Roll. Dr. Kurt D. Newman, president and CEO, said of the rankings: “This prestigious recognition of our excellence, quality, and outcomes is a reflection of hard work and dedication across the Children’s National community. We are grateful to the staff, physicians, donors, partners, volunteers, and other supporters who share our commitment to doing what is right for children.”
The Honor Roll is composed of those hospitals that ranked in the top 10 percent in three or more specialties. Additionally, Children’s National is ranked as a top pediatric hospital in all 10 specialties for the fifth year in a row, and many of our specialties significantly improved their rankings this year, making this our best performance ever.
Children’s National was ranked in the top 25 in every specialty surveyed:
