PHOENIX — Phoenix Children’s Hospital was ranked among the nation’s top pediatric care facilities in 10 different categories, according to data released by U.S. News and World Report on Tuesday.

Rankings were established primarily based upon clinical data and survey results collected by the media company, while expert opinions from specialists and sub specialists were also taken into account.

PCH earned its highest ranking in neonatology, for which it was considered the 20th best facility nationwide for treating related health care issues.

The Valley-based childcare facility also received national rankings for the following pediatric categories:

  • Orthopedics – 23rd
  • Cardiology and heart surgery – 27th
  • Neurology and neurosurgery – 29th
  • Nephrology – 33rd
  • Gastroenterology and GI surgery – 34th
  • Cancer – 35th
  • Pulmonology and lung surgery 37th
  • Diabetes and endocrinology – 39th
  • Urology – 45th

“To be nationally ranked in a specialty, a hospital must excel in caring for the sickest, most medically complex patients,” U.S. News and World Report said of its study.

PCH’s Children’s Heart Center was also praised by U.S. News and World Report for conducting complex operations such as single-ventricle palliation and the Konno operation.
