NC Children's Hospital Ranked as One of Nation's Best

May 19, 2011 - North Carolina Children’s Hospital at UNC Hospitals has been ranked in six of 10 U.S. News Media Group’s “America’s Best Children’s Hospitals” ranking categories, including a Top 50 ranking in Cardiology and Heart Surgery

N.C. Children’s Hospital ranked 10th in pulmonology, 37th in diabetes and endocrinology, 39th in gastroenterology, 42nd in orthopaedics, 43rd in cardiology and heart surgery, and 44th in neonatology. The complete rankings are now available at US News & World Report.

“This marks the fourth consecutive year N.C. Children's Hospital attained the highest ranking of any children's hospital in the state,” said Alan Stiles, MD, the Children's Hospital's chief physician and chair of pediatrics at the UNC School of Medicine. “We have two repeat rankings — pulmonology, in the top 10, has been ranked the past four years, and our diabetes and endocrinology made its debut in the rankings last year—but to have four additional clinical areas receive a nod as among the nation’s best, we feel that’s a direct reflection of our caregivers’ tireless commitment to our three-tiered mission of patient care, research and education.”
