The new rankings recognize 50 children's hospitals in 10 specialties.  Seventy-six hospitals are ranked in at least one specialty. 

"We're honored to be ranked among the best children's hospitals in the nation as a result of our strength in clinical care, research, and education," says Michael Fisher, president and CEO of Cincinnati Children's. "We strive to provide outstanding care across the spectrum of pediatric specialties – and we do it with a focus on quality, safety, family experience and value.  Even so, we're never satisfied and will keep working to be the leader in improving the health of children in our community and around the world."
