Specialized Care

The American Nurses Credentialing Center awarded our nursing staff its "Magnet Recognition," the "gold standard" for nursing excellence and collaboration among care providers. The honor is something that fewer than 7 percent of hospitals in the nation have received.  

Our pediatric training program is one of the largest and most specialized in the United States.

The Department of Pediatrics at the University of Cincinnati College of Medicine is comprised of faculty members who are doctors at Cincinnati Children's. U.S. News & World Report ranks our teaching staff among the top three pediatrics departments in the nation. This distinction was based on a survey of American medical school deans and senior faculty.
