U.S. News & World Report’s Best Children’s Hospitals
University Hospitals Rainbow Babies & Children’s Hospital Ranks No. 3 in the Nation for Treatment of Newborns
UH Rainbow Babies & Children’s Hospital earned high recognition in U.S. News & World Report’s Best Children’s Hospitals annual rankings. UH Rainbow Babies & Children’s Hospital is ranked No. 3 in neonatology, and among the nation’s 10 best children’s hospitals in orthopaedics. Other top-20 specialties include pulmonology and cancer.
In total, UH Rainbow Babies & Children’s Hospital ranks among the nation’s top 50 children’s hospitals in eight medical and surgical specialties:
From pioneering neonatology in the 1960s to opening one of the nation’s first family-centered step-down units with space for parents to stay with their baby, UH Rainbow Babies & Children’s Hospital’s Quentin & Elisabeth Alexander Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) is widely regarded as an international leader in the treatment of critically ill and extremely low birth-weight babies. It was at UH Rainbow Babies & Children’s Hospital where experts first discovered advances in oxygen delivery, and the world’s first surgery table was designed specifically for newborns and preemies.
UH Rainbow’s NICU specialists collaborate closely with maternal fetal medicine specialists at University Hospitals MacDonald Women’s Hospital, creating the safest and most comprehensive care for pregnant women and their babies – and all under one roof, so mothers and their babies are never separated. Today, more babies in Northeast Ohio are born full-term and healthy thanks to successful programs in collaboration with UH MacDonald Women’s Hospital and ground-breaking research to reduce pre-term deliveries.
To develop the children’s hospital rankings, U.S. News & World Report used a three-part methodology combining hospital processes, outcomes, and structure. Nearly 200 children’s hospitals participated in the extensive survey. The complete list of rankings are available online at health.usnews.com. The print edition of Best Hospitals will be available on newsstands Sept. 1.
