Children's Hospital ranks second on US News list
Children's Hospital Boston came in second in a US News & World Report ranking of pediatric hospitals, the magazine said today.
Children's Hospital of Philadelphia took first place and Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore finished third on a list of 30 pediatric hospitals. This is the first time the magazine has created a separate ranking for pediatric hospitals or children's hospitals within a medical center.
The rankings are based on reputation, death rates and care-related measures such as volume, nursing care, advanced technology and outside recognition.
