Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin, located at the Milwaukee Regional Medical Center in Wauwatosa, was named the fourth best pediatric hospital in the nation by Parents magazine.
Only The Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia, Boston Children’s Hospital and Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center ranked ahead of Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin.
Children’s Hospital was ranked number one for preemie care and was ranked third for emergency care by the magazine.
Hospitals are 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; their experience in performing certain complex procedures; the 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 outpatients and inpatients.
The results of the survey will appear in the March 2013 issue of Parents.
