PHOENIX, AZ — Phoenix Children’s Hospital has obtained national rankings in 10 out of 10 pediatric specialties from the U.S. News & World Report for “Best Children’s Hospitals”.

“We are incredibly proud of our clinicians, administrators, and staff who overcame immense challenges last year and redoubled their efforts to provide hope and healing to Arizona families,” said Robert L. Meyer, president and CEO of Phoenix Children’s. The goal, according to him, is to bring high-quality services for all families in Arizona.

The pediatric specialties are ranked based on clinical expertise, patient outcomes, and national reputation in Neonatology, Cardiology & Heart Surgery, Neurology & Neurosurgery, Orthopedics, Nephrology, Cancer, Gastroenterology & Gastroenterology Surgery, Diabetes & Endocrinology, Pulmonology & Lung Surgery, and Urology. Phoenix Children’s ranked highest in the area of Neonatology which surpasses 279 other hospitals.

This is not the first time Phoenix Children’s Hospital has earned such recognition. They have been named among the nation’s “Best Children’s Hospitals” for the last 11 years, and this is the fifth time they have received high marks in all 10 areas.

“This recognition validates our hard work over the past year, but we are not content to rest on our laurels and will continue to push for the best clinical outcomes for our patient families,” said Michael Ritchey, MD, senior vice president and chief medical officer at Phoenix Children’s.

Phoenix Children’s is one of the largest children’s hospitals in Arizona, with more than 850 pediatric primary care providers and specialists who deliver care across 75 subspecialties. For more information, visit
