Riley at IU Health Nationally Ranked in 10 out of 10 Pediatric Specialties

Blog Riley at IU Health Nationally Ranked in 10 out of 10 Pediatric Specialties

One of only 24 children’s hospitals to rank in all 10 specialties


Riley Hospital for Children at Indiana University Health has once again been distinguished as Indiana’s only nationally ranked children’s hospital by U.S.News & World Report, which released its 2017-18 Best Children’s Hospitals rankings Tuesday. Riley at IU Health again ranked in 10 out of 10 pediatric specialties, with its urology program ranking in the top five in the country and pulmonology and diabetes & endocrinology ranking in the nation’s top 20 programs.

This year, 81 U.S. children’s hospitals were nationally ranked in at least one of the 10 pediatric specialties evaluated by U.S.News. Riley at IU Health is one of only 24 children’s hospitals in the country to rank in all 10 pediatric specialties.

Based on a combination of clinical data and reputation among pediatric specialists around the country, Riley at IU Health ranked in each of these areas, including:

“Riley Hospital for Children at IU Health is Indiana’s clear leader in children’s health care,” said Matthew Cook, president of Riley at IU Health. “Families will not find a better team of highly-skilled clinicians who provide more compassionate, patient-centered care combined with the most advanced treatment options available. We walk beside families at every turn.”

U.S.News introduced the Best Children’s Hospitals rankings in 2007 to help families find the best medical care available for their children. The rankings provide an array of detailed information about each hospital’s performance.

“The pediatric centers we rank in Best Children’s Hospitals deliver exceptionally high-quality care and deserve to be recognized for their commitment,” said U.S. News Health Rankings Editor Avery Comarow. “Children with life-threatening illnesses or rare conditions need the state-of-the-art services and expertise these hospitals provide every day.”

To gather clinical data, U.S.News & World Report sent a clinical questionnaire to 187 pediatric hospitals and surveyed more than 11,000 pediatric specialists and subspecialists. More than 80 percent of each hospital’s score relied on patient outcomes and the care-related resources each hospital makes available. The survey asked physicians to give the names of up to ten hospitals in their specialty that provide the best care to patients with serious conditions, without considering location or expense.

Further details on the rankings can be viewed online and in the U.S.News “Best Hospitals 2017” guidebook, which will be available in August.
