Just a couple of hours ago, the new US News rankings for Doernbecher Children’s Hospital came out and we were pleased to learn that Doernbecher scored high in several areas including cancer care, cardiology, neonatology and neurology. The rankings are based on quality-related data, including survival rates, adequacy of nurse staffing and procedure volume and, to a lesser degree, peer-to-peer rankings.
An excerpt from our press release:
The annual rankings feature 50 hospitals in each of 10 pediatric specialties: cancer, cardiology and heart surgery, diabetes and endocrinology, gastroenterology, neonatology, nephrology, neurology and neurosurgery, orthopedics, pulmonology and urology.
OHSU Doernbecher Children’s ranks among the nation’s top 50 in:
* Cardiology and heart surgery
* Diabetes and endocrinology
* Neurology and neurosurgery
“I am enormously proud of the Doernbecher doctors, nurses and other staff who work so hard on behalf of our patients and families, and I’m delighted that they’ve received this recognition,” said Stacy Nicholson, M.D., M.P.H., Physician-in-Chief at OHSU Doernbecher Children’s Hospital and Credit Unions for Kids Professor and Chair of Pediatrics in the OHSU School of Medicine.
