(COLUMBUS, Ohio) – Nationwide Children’s Hospital has been named once again to U.S. News & World Report’s Best Children’s Hospitals Honor Roll. The Honor Roll is a distinction awarded to only 10 children’s medical centers nationwide recognized by U.S. News as the “Best of the Best.” Nationwide Children’s was once again recognized at number 8 on the Honor Roll list.
The 2021-22 Honor Roll designation marks the eighth consecutive year Nationwide Children’s has received this distinction. The Honor Roll list is based on a hospital’s cumulative ranking in 10 specialties evaluated by U.S. News.
“Despite the uncertainty posed by the COVID-19 pandemic, our team’s commitment to the children in our community and globally has never wavered,” said Tim Robinson, Nationwide Children’s CEO. “These rankings highlight the high-quality care Nationwide Children’s provides and are a testament to our incredible team.”
“When choosing a hospital for a sick child, many parents want specialized expertise, convenience and caring medical professionals,” said Ben Harder, chief of health analysis and managing editor at U.S. News. “The Best Children's Hospitals rankings have always highlighted hospitals that excel in specialized care. As the pandemic continues to affect travel, finding high-quality care close to home has never been more important.”
The annual Best Children’s Hospitals rankings, now in their 15th year, are designed to assist patients, their families and their physicians in making informed decisions about where to receive care for challenging health conditions.
The U.S. News & World Report Best Children’s Hospitals ranking is one means of being recognized for continued progress and improvements in pursuing best outcomes, integrated care and research. For more information, visit Best Children’s Hospitals and use #BestHospitals on Facebook and Twitter.
