Eight subspecialty programs of Nicklaus Children’s Hospital, part of Miami Children’s Health System, are again identified among the best in the nation, according to U.S.News & World Report’s 2017-18 “Best Children’s Hospitals” rankings, posted online today.
No other hospital in Florida has more ranked pediatric programs. Nicklaus Children’s 2017-18 rankings are as follows:
“The entire Miami Children’s Health System/Nicklaus Children’s Hospital family is honored to again be recognized for the excellence of our pediatric subspecialty programs,” said Dr. Narendra Kini, CEO of Miami Children’s Health System. “I applaud our physicians, nurses and staff for their sustained commitment to excellence and innovation to support the care needs of the children and families of our region and beyond.”
“The clinical teams at Nicklaus Children’s Hospital are consistently driven to enhance care outcomes and service excellence. The rankings are a tribute to the vision, hard work and dedication of these care providers. Our physicians, staff, leadership and board are all true champions for children,” said Michael Harrington, President and Chief Operating Officer, Nicklaus Children’s Hospital.
The U.S. News rankings are based on clinical survey data from the nation’s pediatric centers and reputational survey information from pediatric specialists and subspecialists. The Best Children's Hospitals methodology factors in clinical outcomes, efficiency and coordination of the process of care delivery, compliance with "best practices" and steps to control infection and care-related resources such as adequate nursing staff and availability of programs tailored to particular illnesses and conditions.
