Lisa Bernard-Kuhn reports:
Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center has been named the third best children’s hospital in the United States by Parents magazine’s 10 Best Children’s Hospital survey.
Cincinnati Children’s also ranked among the top three hospitals nationally in six areas of pediatric sub-specialty care, including a No. 1 ranking in the nation for pulmonary (lung) care.
The hospitals were ranked by Parents editors, with input from a team of medical advisers, based on responses to questions in areas including survival rates for childhood cancer, pediatric heart disease, experience in performing certain complex procedures, depth of the research program and safeguards to prevent medical errors, among other areas. All surveyed hospitals are members of the Children’s Hospital Association.
Cincinnati Children’s ranking in other sub-specialties include: emergency care, second; orthopedic care, second; cancer care, third; heart care, third; preemie care, third.
The 10 Best Children’s Hospitals list will appear in the March 2013 issue of Parents, on newsstands Feb. 12.
(Cincinnati Children’s operates a campus in Mason at 9560 Children’s Drive.)
