Rady Children's Hospital Gains In National Rankings
For the first time, Rady Children’s Hospital has ascended to the top tier for two specialties, according to the nation’s best-known rankings report for pediatric medical centers. The San Diego institution kept its perennial high spot for orthopedics — No. 3 — and jumped by double digits to a new perch at No. 5 for newborn services, said U.S. News & World Report, which released its “Best Children’s Hospitals” document Monday night. While Rady Children’s has never made the publication’s honor roll, which is reserved for the Top 10 pediatric hospitals in the United States, it was among the 24 sites that achieved a Top 50 ranking in every category of the report this year. Those specialties included cancer, cardiology, endocrinology, gastroenterology, nephrology, neurology, pulmonology and urology. (Sisson, 6/26)
