Children’s Hospital Los Angeles has again been ranked among the nation’s premier medical centers for pediatric care in the U.S. News & World Report’s Best Children’s Hospitals annual list.
CHLA not only retained its national No. 5 ranking in U.S. News’ Honor Roll of Best Children’s Hospitals, it continued a consecutive four-year streak of being the highest-scoring children’s hospital in the western U.S.
“To make U.S. News & World Report’s prestigious Best Children’s Hospitals Honor Roll, one must demonstrate the strongest achievements in clinical excellence, with a matchless team of expert, compassionate specialists committed to research and education as well as protocols that drive safety and quality and consistently lead to the best health outcomes for patients,” CHLA President and Chief Executive Officer Paul S. Viviano said. “This honor affirms the work of every CHLA team member and our belief that when parents choose Children’s Hospital Los Angeles, they are choosing the best care for kids.”
Every year, U.S. News scores nearly every major hospital and health system in the country and ranks them according to performance benchmarks, peer review, certifications and other data provided by the hospital, as well as third-party measurements of excellence.
Children’s hospitals are ranked separately from other facilities due to the specialized expertise, equipment and facilities required to care for infants, children and youth.
CHLA improved its ranking over last year in seven of the 10 pediatric specialty categories the survey considers, including a No. 2 ranking for neonatal care.
