Magazine: Best U.S.children’s hospitals
The Children's Hospital of Philadelphia tops Parents magazine's 10 Best Children's Hospitals survey.
Parents magazine surveyed more than 100 children's hospitals, to determine where the more than 3 million children hospitalized each year can get the best care possible.
Every parent wants to make the most informed decisions about their child's health, and that's especially important when a child is facing a serious illness,Dana Points, editor in chief of Parents, said in a statement.
We created this guide with the hope of making the difficult process of choosing the right hospital a little easier.
Parents survey of the best pediatric hospitals ranked in order are:
-- Children's Hospital Boston.
-- Children's Hospital of Wisconsin, Milwaukee.
-- Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center.
-- St. Louis Children's Hospital.
-- Nationwide Children's Hospital, Columbus.
-- Texas Children's Hospital, Houston.
-- Children's Healthcare of Atlanta.
