Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh of UPMC, for the seventh consecutive year, has been named to the U.S. News & World Report Honor Roll of America’s Best Children’s Hospitals.

The hospital is ranked seventh on the 2016-17 Honor Roll of America’s Best Children’s Hospitals, which was released today. The Best Children’s Hospitals rankings highlight the top 50 U.S. pediatric hospitals in each of 10 specialties: cancer; cardiology and heart surgery; diabetes and endocrinology; gastroenterology and GI surgery; neonatology; nephrology; neurology and neurosurgery; orthopedics; pulmonology; and urology.

“We’re very proud to once again be recognized as one of the top children’s hospitals in the country,” said Christopher Gessner, president, Children’s Hospital. “Patients and families with complex medical conditions and needs increasingly are choosing our hospital because our physicians, nurses, and staff, who are among the leaders in their fields, are committed to providing the highest quality pediatric healthcare in the world every single day.”

The 2016-17 Best Children’s Hospitals rankings will be released online today and also will be published in the U.S. News “Best Hospitals 2017” guidebook, available in September.
