Valley Children's Hospital makes top 50 national rankings in three specialties

Boston Children's Hospital is still the best pediatric hospital in the country, according to the latest rankings from U.S. News and World Report.

Leading the way was New York-Presbyterian Morgan Stanley-Komansky Children's Hospital, which landed in the top rankings in all 10 specialties, the findings released Tuesday show. The hospital also has the region's only Level IV neonatal intensive care unit, which means it meets the highest standards set by the Academy of Pediatrics.

This story will be updated.

"Once again, our care team members at the Children's Hospital have another source of validation for the excellent care they are delivering to our patients and their families every day", said Patrick J.
