Loma Linda University Children’s Hospital has been recognized as a 2022-23 Best Children’s Hospital by U.S. News & World Report for cardiology & heart surgery, neonatology, and nephrology.

Released today, these annual rankings are designed to assist patients, their families, and providers in making informed decisions about where to receive care for challenging health conditions.

“We are so proud of our hospital’s continued innovative and dedicated strides in pediatric cardiology and heart surgery, neonatology, and nephrology,” said Peter Baker, senior vice president and administrator of Children’s Hospital. “This recognition belongs to our incredible pediatric healthcare teams, and we celebrate their unwavering commitment to quality health care of children in our community and beyond.”

For 2022-23, U.S. News & World Report ranked the top fifty centers in each of these ten pediatric specialties: cancer, cardiology & heart surgery, neonatology, nephrology, neurology and neurosurgery, orthopedics, pulmonology & lung surgery, and urology.

To calculate the Best Children’s Hospitals rankings, U.S. News & World Report, in early 2022, gathered relevant data from children’s hospitals, pediatric physicians, and other healthcare organizations, as well as available clinical resources; it also reviewed compliance with best practices and efforts to promote diversity, equity, and inclusion among patients and staff.
