DETROIT — The Children’s Hospital of Michigan at the Detroit Medical Center is among the best in the country in eight pediatric specialties according to the new U.S. News & World Report’s 2015-16 Best Children’s Hospitals rankings. The hospital received the highest ranking of any pediatric hospital in Michigan for cancer, neurology and neurosurgery, and nephrology.
“This national recognition reflects our commitment to bring the very best, compassionately delivered and quality-driven medical care to children and their loved ones in this community and to all the patients we serve from around the world,” says Stephen Lipshultz, the hospital’s pediatrician-in-chief. “Our work is not done. We drive toward excellence every single day and constantly seek to improve.”
The Best Children’s Hospitals rankings highlight U.S. News’ top 50 U.S. pediatric facilities in cancer, cardiology and heart surgery, diabetes and endocrinology, gastroenterology and GI surgery, neonatology, nephrology, neurology & neurosurgery, orthopedics, pulmonology and urology. Based on a combination of clinical data and reputation surveys of pediatric specialists, 83 hospitals ranked in at least one specialty.
U.S. News introduced the Best Children’s Hospitals rankings in 2007 to help families of children with rare or life-threatening illnesses find the best medical care available. The rankings open the door to an array of detailed information about each hospital’s performance.
