UPMC Children's Hospital of Pittsburgh has been recognized as one of the Most Innovative Children's Hospitals in the nation by Parents magazine.
Based on the results of a comprehensive survey, UPMC Children’s Hospital was selected as one of the 20 most innovative children’s hospitals and will appear in the October issue of the magazine and online at Parents.com/hospitals.
The survey, sent to members of the Children’s Hospital Association, sought to identify hospitals with a proven track record of innovations that have led to medical advances. The survey also took into account a hospital’s adoption of the latest technologies and its efforts to share its innovations with other pediatric centers so more children can benefit from them.
In the article, UPMC Children’s is recognized for research surrounding improved medical therapy for ear infections, which shows that reducing the amount of a certain drug (clavulanate) given to children with ear infections not only lowers side effects, but also is as effective in treating the infection. The research was led by Alejandro Hoberman, M.D., chief, Division of General Academic Pediatrics at UPMC Children’s, president, Children’s Community Pediatrics, and the Jack L. Paradise Endowed Professor of Pediatric Research at the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine.
“This special honor and recognition as one of the Most Innovative Children’s Hospitals speaks to the dedication of our world-class physicians, researchers, and staff whose desire to be excellent in all that we do keeps us on the frontier of pediatric medicine,” said Christopher Gessner, president, UPMC Children's Hospital.
“UPMC Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh has an impressive history of being on the forefront of innovation and technology,” says Liz Vaccariello, editor in chief of Parents magazine. “It was the first children’s hospital in the country to fully adopt the electronic medical record. We were also excited to learn about the strides that it has made in helping reduce the side effects of medication for ear infections.”
