Best Children's Hospitals US News & World Report Honor Roll 2011-12

NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital is the only tri-state-area hospital listed on the 2011-2012 U.S. News Media Group Best Children's Hospitals Honor Roll, and the hospital ranks eighth in the country in pediatric care.

NewYork-Presbyterian provides children's health services at two major sites: NewYork-Presbyterian Morgan Stanley Children's Hospital at NewYork-Presbyterian/Columbia University Medical Center and the Phyllis and David Komansky Center for Children's Health at NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital/Weill Cornell Medical Center.

NewYork-Presbyterian, where the world's first six-organ pediatric auto-transplant surgery was performed, is ranked in all 10 clinical specialties. These include Cancer, Cardiology and Heart Surgery, Diabetes and Endocrinology, Gastroenterology, Neonatology, Nephrology, Neurology and Neurosurgery, Orthopedics, Pulmonology and Urology.

Now in its fifth year, Best Children's Hospitals pulls together clinical and operational data from a lengthy survey, completed by the majority of the 177 hospitals asked to participate for the 2011-2012 rankings. The survey asks hundreds of questions about survival rates, nurse staffing, subspecialist availability, and many more pieces of critical information difficult or impossible for those in charge of a child's care to find on their own. The data from the survey is combined with recommendations from pediatric specialists on the hospitals they consider best for children with challenging problems.

"At NewYork-Presbyterian's Morgan Stanley Children's Hospital and Komansky Center for Children's Health, caring for children means providing the best-available care in all clinical specialties," says Dr. Herbert Pardes, president and CEO of NewYork-Presbyterian. "Through our affiliations with two of the nation's leading medical colleges, Weill Cornell Medical College and Columbia University College of Physicians and Surgeons, our pediatric specialists are continually introducing new, advanced treatment options, as we strive continually to create a warm, safe and comforting environment that fosters health and healing for our youngest patients and their families."

"We are proud to be counted again as one of the nation's leading children's hospitals, something that is only possible through the talent and skill of all our employees and clinical staff, and their dedication to putting our patients and families first," adds Dr. Steven J. Corwin, executive vice president and COO of NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital.

The full rankings are available at www.usnews.com/childrenshospitals, and in print form, via Amazon.com in mid-August, and on newsstands Aug. 30.
