The Monroe Carell Jr. Children's Hospital at Vanderbilt has once again been named among the nation's leaders in pediatric health care in U.S. News & World Report magazine’s annual Best Children's Hospitals rankings released today.
The hospital achieved national rankings for a maximum of 10 out of 10 pediatric specialty programs.
“Our sustained commitment to provide the very best care for the children of this region across a broad continuum of specialty and subspecialty services is in evidence in these rankings,” C. Wright Pinson, deputy vice chancellor for Health Affairs and CEO of the Vanderbilt Health System, said in a release.
The U.S. News Best Children's Hospitals rankings for 2012-2013 recognize top performers among the nation's 178 designated pediatric hospitals.
U.S. News & World Report has ranked the Carell facility every year since the inception of the publication’s pediatric rankings, now in their sixth year.
