Riley at IU Health Remains the Only Nationally Ranked Children’s Hospital in Indiana

Riley at IU Health is once again distinguished as the only nationally ranked children’s hospital in Indiana by U.S. News & World Report, which released its 2014-15 Best Children’s Hospitals rankings today.

Riley at IU Health continues to be ranked among the top 50 pediatric facilities nationwide for a range of pediatric specialties. Notably, the hospital’s urology program has been named No. 2 in the country.

This year, fewer than 100 U.S. children’s hospitals were ranked in at least one of the 10 pediatric specialties U.S.News evaluates. Based on a combination of clinical data and reputation among pediatric specialist around the country, Riley at IU Health ranked in nine of these areas, including: cancer, cardiology & heart surgery, diabetes & endocrinology, gastroenterology & GI surgery, nephrology, neurology & neurosurgery, orthopedics, pulmonology and urology.

“Recognition of this caliber is possible only because of the unshakable commitment our team shows to every patient and family member who steps foot inside our doors, whether for an asthma checkup or a life-saving heart transplant,” said Riley at IU Health President and CEO Dr. Jeff Sperring. “That caring spirit is what makes Riley at IU Health a standout institution.”

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.

“We know how important it is to parents to have confidence in pediatric centers that show dedication and expertise in caring for a child facing a life-threatening, rare or demanding illness,” said U.S.News Health Rankings Editor Avery Comarow. “Every Best Children’s Hospital deserves high praise.”

To gather clinical data, U.S.News sent a clinical questionnaire to 183 pediatric hospitals. More than 80 percent of each hospital’s score relied on patient outcomes and the care-related resources each hospital makes available. The remaining percentage derived from a survey of 4,500 pediatric specialists, administered during a three-year period. The physicians were asked where they would send the sickest children in their specialty, regardless of location and expense.

Further details on the rankings can be viewed online and in the U.S.News “Best Hospitals 2015” guidebook, which will be available in August.
