Children's Hospital of Wisconsin specialties ranked in U.S.News & World Report America's Best Children's Hospitals
Six pediatric specialties at Children's Hospital of Wisconsin have been ranked in the 2010-11 edition of Best Children's Hospitals by U.S.News & World Report, published online at usnews.com/childrenshospitals and featured in the August issue of the magazine.
The rankings are: Heart and Heart Surgery, 8; Digestive Disorders, 14; Urology, 20; Respiratory Disorders, 28; Neurology and Neurosurgery, 28; and Neonatal care, 30.
The methodology behind this year's rankings weighed a three-part blend of hospital resources directly related to patient care, outcomes and care-related measures such as nursing care, advanced technology, credentialing and other factors. The hospitals were judged based on a combination of peer review from pediatric specialists about the hospitals they would recommend for the sickest children and data gathered in a survey covering important medical information ranging from surgical death rates to whether pediatric anesthesiologists and other subspecialists are on the staff.
