This year, the U.S. News and World Report’s ranking of the top children’s hospitals in the country factored in diversity, equity, and inclusion for the first time.
The 2022-23 rankings, released earlier this week, considered 119 children’s hospitals from all over the nation. The hospitals were ranked in 10 specialties using data on patient outcomes, health equity, and compliance with best practices.
Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia ranked in fourth place in the nation. It is also the highest-ranked hospital in the Mid-Atlantic region as well as in Pennsylvania.
