The strongest start for kids happens here: #1 for newborn care top 10 overall

July 20, 2017
Thanks to your partnership and support, Children’s National is once again ranked as one of the nation’s ten Best Children’s Hospitals, and a member of the U.S. News & World Report 2017-18 Honor Roll.

This year’s survey also resulted in Children’s National being ranked #1 for newborn intensive care by U.S. News & World Report. And four other services ranked in the Top 10: Cancer #7, Neurology and Neurosurgery #9, Orthopedics #9 and Nephrology #10.

Being the #1 ranked Neonatology program out of over 1,500 NICUs in the United States is a direct result of the extraordinary expertise of our NICU team and their dedication to supporting every family, every day. This honor also reflects on the quality of care throughout Children’s National because the very best outcomes for our tiny patients requires the support and partnership of many other specialties, including cardiology, neurology and surgery. 

We share this honor with you, our referring physicians, who trust us with the care of your patients every day.
