Penn State Hershey Children’s Hospital Again Ranked Among Best in Nation

The Penn State Hershey Children’s Hospital had a nice showing in the U.S. News & World Report’s 2014-15 Best Children’s Hospital rankings, placing in the top 50 of six specialities — its highest total ever.

Of the 10 specialties that the outlet ranked, the Hershey hospital placed in cancer, cardiology and heart surgery, nephrology, neurology and neurosurgery, orthopedics and urology. It’s the fourth straight year that the hospital has been ranked.

“We’re thrilled to see our dedicated and skilled faculty and staff receive this well-deserved recognition of their efforts to provide unparalleled care for children and families,” said Dr. Craig Hillemeier, the medical director of Penn State Hershey Children’s Hospital, in the press release.

The rankings relied on several criteria, the most heavily-weighted of which was patient outcomes and the care-related resources each hospital makes available. It placed 32nd in neurology and neurosurgery; 36th in orthopedics; 37th in urology; 48th in nephrology; 49th in cancer; and 49th in cardiology and heart surgery.

Of course, the Hershey Children’s Hospital is where children with pediatric cancer are treated with funds from the Four Diamonds Fund. U.S. News & World Report is the same outlet that placed Penn State the 37th-best undergraduate university in the country and eighth-best public university this past September.
