The Children's Hospital of Michigan is nationally ranked in seven of 10 categories


DETROIT – A Michigan hospital can add another accomplishment to its list. Children's Hospital of Michigan is among the best in the country in pediatric specialties. That's according to the U.S. News & World Report's 2013-14 'Best Children's Hospitals  rankings.

The Children's Hospital of Michigan is nationally ranked in seven of the 10 evaluated categories. Those categories are Cancer,  Cardiology & Heart Surgery, Nephrology, Neurology & Neurosurgery, Orthopedics, Pulmonology, and Urology.

"We are honored and humbled to have the Children's Hospital of Michigan recognized again as one of America's best hospitals for children. This would not be possible without the relentless dedication, commitment and expertise of our entire health care team who care for the children and families we serve," said Children's Hospital of Michigan Chief Executive Officer Herman Gray, M.D.

U.S. News introduced the Best Children's Hospitals rankings in 2007 to help families of sick children find the best medical care available. The rankings offer families an exclusive look at quality-related information at the individual hospital level.

Most of each hospital's score was determined through an analysis of patient outcomes and data on the structural resources each hospital has for pediatric care.
