Cincinnati Children’s Hospital had been ranked the #1 Pediatric Hospital in the Nation by US News and World Report!

For the first time, Cincinnati Children’s has been named the #1 U.S. children’s hospital by U.S. News and World Report and ranked in the top 10 among the 10 specialties that are reviewed. Radiology services are a part of the ranking of each of those 10 areas, and what we do directly impacts the success of the institution.

More important than the number is the fact that Cincinnati Children’s has worked hard to improve the outcomes of its patients, which is the real bottom line regarding the work we do. We achieved 91% of the possible score on outcomes, more than any other children’s hospital (and our outcomes performance for the current year is looking even better).

This year, we will perform about 245,000 imaging exams and procedures (a record year as well). The technical skill in exam performance and interpretation and the level of care that our patients’ experience is second to none. We touch and improve the lives of so many and provide the information that our clinicians need to do their remarkable work. There were celebratory events and a new #1 t-shirt honoring our achievements. I know our radiology department is proud of what we do, of who we are, and of what we are collectively when we work together for the care of the children entrusted to us.
