Riley at IU Health Ranked In All 10 Specialties By U.S.News & World Report

Blog Riley at IU Health Ranked In All 10 Specialties By U.S.News & World Report

Congratulations, Riley Team! Riley Hospital for Children at Indiana University Health is proud to be one of only 26 children’s hospitals in the country to be ranked in 10 out of 10 pediatric specialties by U.S.News & World Report. Our children’s hospital has once again been recognized for its dedicated medical team and amazing care.


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 2016-17 Best Children’s Hospitals rankings today. Riley at IU Health again ranked in 10 out of 10 pediatric specialties.

This year, 78 U.S. children’s hospitals were ranked in at least one of the 10 pediatric specialties evaluated by U.S.News. Riley at IU Health is one of only 26 children’s hospitals to have ranked 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:

“This distinction matches the profound impact that Riley at IU Health has in the lives of Hoosier children,” said Matthew Cook, president of Riley at IU Health. “When it comes to compassionate, patient-centered care, groundbreaking treatment and highly skilled physicians, Riley at IU Health offers the very best.”

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

“The Best Children’s Hospitals highlight pediatric centers that offer exceptional care for the kids who need the most help,” said U.S. News Health Rankings Editor Avery Comarow. “Day in and day out, they deliver state-of-the-art medical care.”

To gather clinical data, U.S.News & World Report sent a clinical questionnaire to 183 pediatric hospitals and surveyed nearly 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.
