Le Bonheur Children’s Hospital has been named a Best Children’s Hospital by U.S. News & World Report.
This is the seventh consecutive year Le Bonheur has been included in the prestigious list, and this year, Le Bonheur received recognition in eight specialties.
Among those specialties recognized were cardiology and heart surgery, gastroenterology and GI surgery, neonatology, neurology and neurosurgery, nephrology, orthopedics, pulmonology and urology.
“U.S. News is the gold standard for children’s hospitals for safety, strong clinical outcomes, technology and family-centered care,” said Le Bonheur President Meri Armour.
“Our families can trust they will receive the best care when they come to Le Bonheur and use Best Children’s Hospital as a stamp of approval of our world-class care.”
U.S. News introduced the Best Children’s Hospitals list in 2007 to help families of children with rare or life-threatening illnesses find the best medical care available. These lists open the door to an array of detailed information about each hospital’s performance.
The U.S. News Best Children’s Hospitals rankings rely on clinical data and on an annual survey of pediatric specialists. Survival rates, adequacy of nurse staffing, procedure volume and much more can be viewed by clicking here.
