Riley Hospital for Children at Indiana University Health has once again been named among U.S. News & World Report’s “Best Children’s Hospitals” for 2015-16. Riley is the only nationally ranked children’s hospital in Indiana.
The rankings were based on ten pediatric specialties including cancer, cardiology and heart surgery, diabetes and endocrinology, gastroenterology and GI surgery, neonatology, nephrology, neurology and neurosurgery, orthopedics, pulmonology and urology. Riley at IU Health was one of only 21 hospitals nationwide to rank in all ten specialties.
“This distinction is reflective of our team’s skill and compassion in treating our patients, and the incredible impact it has on the lives of Indiana’s children and families,” said Paul R. Haut, MD, interim president and chief medical officer at Riley at IU Health. “From the routine to the unforeseen, the level of care and commitment that each child receives is what really distinguishes Riley Hospital for Children at IU Health.”
U.S. News first started the ranking of best children’s hospitals in 2007 to help families with sick children find the best medical care available. The rankings provide a wide variety of information about each hospital’s performance.
More information and the full rankings can be found on U.S. News’ website.
