When your kid is sick you want the best care possible whether it’s a sore throat or fighting a life-threatening disease. We’re lucky in Detroit. Children’s Hospital of Michigan provides exceptional care for the kids who need the most help.
The hospital has been ranked among the best in the country in four pediatric specialties in the 2016-17 U.S. News Best Children’s Hospitals. The four specialties are neurology and neurosurgery, nephrology, orthopedics and cardiology and heart surgery. Children’s Hospital of Michigan is one of eight hospitals operated by the Detroit Medical Center.
The U.S. News Best Children’s Hospitals rankings help parents determine where to get the best medical care for their children. The rankings highlight the top 50 U.S. pediatric facilities in 10 specialties, from cancer to urology. Children’s has been ranked consistently since 2004.
There are only a handful of children’s hospitals like Children’s across the country that provide a full range of advanced services and specialties designed especially for kids.
“This national recognition reflects our commitment to bring the very best, compassionately delivered and quality-driven medical care to children and their loved ones in this community and to all the patients we serve from around the world,” says Steven E. Lipshultz, Children’s Hospital of Michigan’s pediatrician-in-chief and Wayne State University School of Medicine Chair of Pediatrics. “This affirms the expertise of the Children’s Hospital of Michigan in providing advanced patient care to some of the most seriously ill and medically complex children, who often have rare illnesses from before birth to young adulthood.”
U.S. News Best Children’s Hospitals rankings help families of children with rare or life threatening illnesses find the best medical care available. The rankings open the door to an array of detailed information about each hospital’s performance.
“Our work is not done,” says Lipshultz. “We drive toward excellence every single day and constantly seek to improve.”
