NewYork-Presbyterian Ranks First in New York and Among Top Ten in Nation in U.S.News & World Report "America's Best Children's Hospitals" Survey

NEW YORK (Aug 24, 2007)

NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital ranks first in New York and eighth in the nation for pediatric care, according to the U.S.News & World Report "America's Best Children's Hospitals" issue, which features a detailed listing of the nation's top 30 children's hospitals. The ranking accounts for NewYork-Presbyterian's two major centers for children's health care: Morgan Stanley Children's Hospital of NewYork-Presbyterian and the Komansky Center for Children's Health at NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital/Weill Cornell Medical Center.

NewYork-Presbyterian is listed with the highest possible score in three categories: Tetralogy of Fallot mortality (a heart procedure), Brain Surgery mortality and Technology.

The first stand-alone "America's Best Children's Hospitals" rankings reflect reputation, mortality rates and other patient-care-related factors. This special issue is available on newsstands on Monday, August 27. The complete report can be viewed at www.usnews.com/pediatrics.

"From newborns to adolescents, children in need of serious medical attention deserve the best care available. Through our affiliation 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," says Dr. Herbert Pardes, president and CEO of NewYork-Presbyterian. "We are very pleased to be recognized as one of the leading children's hospitals included in the list of 'America's Best Children's Hospitals.'"

"Since launching our annual rankings of hospitals in 1990, the demand for facilities dedicated to the unique needs of children has changed dramatically," said Avery Comarow, a senior writer with U.S.News & World Report who has been editor of "America's Best Hospitals" since its inception 17 years ago. "Improving the usefulness and relevance of the rankings in this important specialty has been a long-standing goal of the magazine. We hope that parents and caregivers will find this special report helpful when seeking out medical attention for their child."

Based on pediatric rankings reported in previous "Best Hospitals" issues, this year's pediatric ranking represents the seventh year the Hospital is ranked in the top 10.

In July 2007, NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital was ranked first in New York City and sixth in the nation for adult care by the 2007 U.S.News & World Report "America's Best Hospitals" issue.

Morgan Stanley Children's Hospital of NewYork-Presbyterian and the Phyllis and David Komansky Center for Children's Health at NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital/Weill Cornell Medical Center

Morgan Stanley Children's Hospital of NewYork-Presbyterian, which is affiliated with Columbia University College of Physicians and Surgeons, and the Phyllis and David Komansky Center for Children's Health at NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital/Weill Cornell Medical Center, which is affiliated with Weill Cornell Medical College, have built a reputation for more than a century as two of the nation's premier children's hospitals. Ranked together by U.S.News & World Report as among the top eight children's hospitals in the country, they offer the best available care in every area of pediatrics—including the most complex neonatal and critical care, and all areas of pediatric surgery—in a family-friendly and technologically advanced setting. Manhattan's only hospitals dedicated solely to the care of children and the largest providers of children's health services in the tri-state area, they are also major international referral centers, meeting the special needs of children from infancy through adolescence worldwide.
