Several of the Divisions in the Department of Pediatrics contributed to the U.S. News & World Report rankings of America’s Best Children’s Hospitals naming it a “best hospital” in that category. This year’s rankings placed the MUSC Children’s Hospital heart program among the top 10 in the country. Here’s a look at all five of the MUSC Children’s Hospital divisions honored in the new 2018rankings, based on information from about 180 pediatric centers across the country:

  • Cardiology & Heart Surgery (#7)
  • Nephrology (#25)
  • Cancer (#40)
  • Pediatrics: Gastroenterology & GI Surgery (#38)
  • Orthopedics (#40)

The rankings take into account clinical, operational and quality outcomes data, results from a reputational survey of board-certified pediatric specialists and supplemental information from resources such as the National Cancer Institute.
