OHIO – The US News and World Report’s First List of Best Children’s Hospitals in the United States features a list of the best medical facilities for children in Ohio.
US News added a state ranking to its list of the best children’s hospitals in the country for the first time this week when it released its 2021 rankings this week, with the Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center, Nationwide Children’s Hospital, and Cleveland Clinic Children’s Hospital as the The highest rated children’s hospitals in Ohio.
“This year’s new state and regional rankings can help families easily find local hospitals that can meet their children’s needs,” said Ben Harder, editor-in-chief of US News, in a press release. “With the pandemic continuing to affect travel, finding quality care close to where you live has never been more important.”
US News’ top children’s hospitals were also sorted by region this year. All rankings were determined through a clinical survey sent to about 200 hospitals nationwide and another survey that included input from more than 100 pediatric experts, US News said.
Specifically, the researchers looked at three categories – clinical outcomes, care coordination, and care-related resources – when determining the rankings. All of the data used in the rankings came before the coronavirus outbreak turned into a pandemic, according to US News.
In the Midwest, the top-rated hospital in the Midwest is the Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center, according to US News. Remember to delete your regional hospital from the following paragraph.
