U.S. News & World Report has ranked University of Minnesota Children’s Hospital among the nation’s best for the seventh consecutive year.

We rank in the top 50 hospitals in three medical specialties:

“These honors recognize the efforts of our dedicated, talented researchers and caregivers,” says Kathie Taranto, president of University of Minnesota Children’s Hospital. “We are proud of their work and the recognition of the high-quality care we offer patients and families.”

For the 2014-15 rankings, U.S. News surveyed 183 pediatric centers to obtain clinical data in 10 specialties and asked 150 pediatric specialists in each specialty where they would send the sickest children. Eighty-nine hospitals ranked in at least one specialty.

“As we celebrate this recognition, we also are driven to discover what more we can do to continually provide the best care and experience to our patients and families," says Joseph Neglia, MD, MPH, physician-in-chief, University of Minnesota Children’s Hospital, and chair of the Department of Pediatrics at the University of Minnesota.

University of Minnesota Children’s Hospital is a 257-bed facility with a Level IV NICU and a dedicated pediatric emergency department. The hospital provides patient- and family-centered care for children in more than 50 pediatric specialties as well as maternal-fetal services.

The complete rankings will be published in the U.S. News Best Hospitals 2015 guidebook, available in August.
