"As we approach the debut of our newly expanded hospital this year, these rankings affirm the quality of specialty care that we are so proud to provide our patients", said Christopher G. Dawes, Packard Children's president and chief executive officer. Fenwick said in the statement that it is their mission to provide the best experience and outcome possible to every family that walks through their doors. "This recognition is an outstanding external acknowledgment for our institution, but more importantly for the dedicated St. Jude faculty and staff who devote their time, talent and energy to the patients we care for every day".

The 11 annual rankings recognize the top 50 pediatric facilities across the U.S.in 10 pediatric specialties.

Johns Hopkins All Children's Hospital in St. Petersburg, Florida, ranked nationally in three specialties: Neurology & Neurosurgery, Cardiology & Heart Surgery, and Orthopedics. RTI International, a North Carolina-based research and consulting firm that also generates the Best Hospitals rankings, administered both surveys and analyzed the results. Founded as a 20-bed hospital for children, Boston Children's today is a 415-bed comprehensive center for pediatric and adolescent health care. "It is a tremendous accolade to have our exceptional physicians and staff recognized by U.S. News". Boston Children's is also the primary pediatric teaching affiliate of Harvard Medical School.
