Lurie Children’s provides some of the highest quality pediatric care in the country - in 2017, we were ranked as the 7th best children's hospital in the country. Also, we're the only pediatric hospital in Illinois to be ranked by U.S.News & World Report in all 10 specialties. In fact, no other Illinois hospital scored higher in any one specialty area. With more than 5,000 hospitals in the United States, only about 1 in 30 has the expertise to care for children with serious problems.
According to U.S.News & World Report, "the specific mission of the Best Children's Hospitals rankings is to identify hospitals that provide the highest quality of care for children with the most serious or complicated medical conditions, using the most robust and sensitive measures available." These rankings are based on patient care resources, treatment, patient safety and reputation, as well as patient outcomes.
