This is the sixth consecutive year the hospital has ranked among the top five children’s hospitals for the care of newborns in the Quentin & Elisabeth Alexander Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU).

UH Rainbow Babies & Children’s Hospital’s NICU has a 96 percent survival rate, one of the best survival rates in the nation, and is widely regarded as an international leader in the treatment of critically ill and extremely low birth-weight babies. This ranking sustains UH Rainbow Babies & Children’s Hospital’s rich history of preeminent care for newborns – from pioneering neonatology in the 1960s to opening one of the first step-down units for neonates in the nation in 1992 – the hospital’s nationally recognized neonatologists, leading-edge clinical research, treatments and technologies will continue to advance neonatology for generations to come.
U.S. News & World Report introduced the Best Children’s Hospitals rankings in 2007 to help families of sick children find the best medical care available. The rankings offer families an exclusive look at quality-related information at the individual hospital level.
Hospital specialties were ranked using a three-part combination of reputation, outcomes and care-related measures, such as nursing care, advanced technology, infection control and safety measures. A complete list of the children’s hospital rankings can be viewed on the U.S. News & World Report website and will be published in the U.S. News Best Hospitals 2014 guidebook, available beginning in August.
