Michigan Medicine’s C.S. Mott Children’s Hospital was recognized among the best children’s hospitals in the country by U.S. News & World Report.
Mott was the only children’s hospital in Michigan nationally ranked in all 10 pediatric specialties evaluated in the 2020-21 Best Children’s Hospitals rankings released June 16.
The institution was recognized among the nation’s best in cardiology and heart surgery, nephrology, orthopedics, neurology and neurosurgery, gastroenterology and gastrointestinal surgery, cancer, neonatology, pulmonology, urology and diabetes and endocrinology.
The annual rankings highlight the top 50 pediatric facilities across the country. Out of nearly 200 medical centers assessed nationwide, Mott was among just 24 hospitals ranked in all 10 evaluated specialties.
“These rankings reinforce our commitment to exemplary, specialty care for children with rare and life-threatening diseases,” said Luanne Thomas Ewald, chief operating officer at Mott and Von Voigtlander Women’s Hospital. “We are grateful for our teams of doctors, nurses and staff who are devoted to high quality care, innovative research and improving children’s health in Michigan and beyond.”
The U.S. News Best Children’s Hospitals rankings rely on clinical data and on an annual survey of pediatric specialists. The rankings methodology considers clinical outcomes — such as mortality and infection rates — along with efficiency and coordination of care delivery plus compliance with “best practices.”
“The U.S. News rankings are one measure of our clinical teams’ dedication to world-class care, patient safety and family centeredness,” said Chris Dickinson, Mott chief clinical officer. “Our providers are relentlessly focused on providing exceptional, compassionate and personalized care for families who come to us for help with their children’s complex medical needs.”
