Rankings Highlight Top 50 Pediatric Hospitals

“These rankings are a testament to the highly specialized care that Valley Children’s provides in an environment designed just for kids, delivered by physicians and staff who have devoted their lives to getting and keeping kids well,” said Valley Children’s President and CEO Todd Suntrapak.
The news organization created the Best Children’s Hospitals rankings in 2007. The 13th annual rankings highlight the top 50 U.S. pediatric facilities in 10 categories. More than 220 pediatric hospitals nationwide are members of the Children’s Hospital Association.
This is the fourth consecutive year that Valley Children’s has been nationally ranked by U.S. News. For 2018-19, the hospital had four specialties nationally ranked.
Boston Children’s Hospital earned the No. 1 overall ranking.  No. 5 overall Children’s Hospital Los Angeles was top rated in California.

How and Why the Hospitals Are Evaluated

“The Best Children’s Hospitals rankings were designed to help provide families seeking the best medical care for their sick child with access to the most comprehensive data available,” said Ben Harder, managing editor and chief of health analysis for U.S. News.
According to U.S. News, its rankings are based on clinical data and on an annual survey of pediatric specialists. The rankings weigh patient outcomes, such as mortality and infection rates, as well as available clinical resources and compliance with best practices.
