Children’s Among 3 Best Hospitals in U.S., Parents Magazine Says

Parents Magazine has ranked Cincinnati Children’s third among the best children’s hospitals in the country, according to the publication’s 10 Best Children’s Hospitals survey.

Cincinnati Children’s also ranked among the top three hospitals nationally in six areas of pediatric subspecialty care, including a No. 1 ranking in the nation for pulmonary care.

Other highly ranked Cincinnati Children’s subspecialties include second place for both emergency care and orthopedic care and third place rankings for cancer, heart and preemie care.

The 10 Best Children’s Hospitals list will appear in the March 2013 issue of Parents, on newsstands Feb. 12.

Hospitals were ranked by Parents editors, with input from a team of medical advisors, based on responses to questions in areas including survival rates for childhood cancer, pediatric heart disease, experience in performing certain complex procedures, depth of the research program and safeguards to prevent medical errors, among other areas. All surveyed hospitals are members of the Children’s Hospital Association.
