Penn State Hershey Children’s Hospital Ranked Among Best In Nation For Fifth Consecutive Year

The U.S. News & World Report recently ranked The Penn State Hershey Children’s Hospital in eight specialties as part of the Best Children’s Hospital Rankings for 2015-16.

The Children’s Hospital ranked in the specialties of cancer, cardiology and heart surgery, gastroenterology and GI surgery, nephrology, neurology and neurosurgery, orthopedics, pulmonology, and urology.  This isn’t the first honor for the hospital, which first made the Best Children’s Hospital list in 2008 and has ranked multiple times since, including the last five consecutive years. However, this is the most specialties the hospital has found itself among the rankings of to date — a true achievement.

“This national recognition is a testament to the unparalleled care and support our physicians, nurses, clinical specialists, and other staff provide for children and families every day,” Dr. Craig Hillemeier said in a press release. Hillemeier is the dean of Penn State College of Medicine, chief executive officer of Penn State Hershey Medical Center and Health System, and Penn State’s senior vice president for health affairs. “The U.S. News rankings reinforce for our community that Penn State Hershey Children’s Hospital is among the best when it comes to offering a full spectrum of high-level pediatric care, and we do it right here in central Pennsylvania.”

U.S. News & World Report highlights the top 50 U.S. hospitals in each of 10 pediatric specialties and provides detailed information about each hospital’s performance. The full rankings can be found here.
