Lurie Children's Named One of the Nation's Top Ten Pediatric Hospitals

Ann & Robert H. Lurie Children’s Hospital of Chicago (formerly Children’s Memorial Hospital) was ranked tenth in the country among pediatric hospitals according to an exclusive survey by Parents magazine. Lurie Children’s Hematology/Oncology division was ranked 8th among pediatric cancer programs nationwide.

The survey focused on key areas including treatment success, groundbreaking research and family-friendly facilities. The Ten Best Hospitals list will appear in the March 2013 issue of Parents on newsstands nationwide.

The hospitals were ranked by Parents editors, with input from a team of medical advisors, based on their responses to detailed questions in the following areas: survival rates for childhood cancer, pediatric heart disease, and other critical conditions; experience in performing certain complex procedures; depth of the research program; safeguards to prevent medical errors; staffing ratios and quality; community outreach; and services that address the emotional needs of families of patients. All surveyed hospitals are members of the Children’s Hospital Association (formerly National Association of Children’s Hospitals).  

Parents was founded in 1926 and has a community of more than 15 million moms.
