    This is the fifth consecutive year that Cincinnati Children’s has been ranked among the top three pediatric hospitals in the United States. 

    “I’m grateful to our 15,000 employees for their passion, talent and dedication. They make these outstanding results possible,” said Michael Fisher, president and CEO of Cincinnati Children’s. “I also want to thank the families and patients who place their trust in us for care.  We will keep working hard for them as we pursue our vision to be the leader in improving child health.” 

    The Best Children’s Hospitals rankings highlight the top 50 pediatric facilities in the nation in 10 specialties.  Based on a combination of clinical data and reputational surveys of pediatric specialists, 83 of the 184 hospitals surveyed ranked in at least one specialty, while Cincinnati Children’s ranked in all of them. 

    Most of each hospital’s score relied on patient outcomes and care-related resources. U.S. News garnered clinical data from a detailed questionnaire sent to 184 pediatric hospitals. A sixth of the score came from annual surveys of pediatric specialists and subspecialists in each specialty in 2013, 2014 and 2015. They were asked where they would send the sickest children in their specialty, setting aside considerations of location and expense.

    Detailed information can be viewed online and will be published in the U.S. News “Best Hospitals 2016” guidebook, available on Sept. 1, 2015.
