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 their 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 healthcare of children in our community and beyond.”  

For 2022-23, U.S. News & World Report ranked the top 50 centers in each of these 10 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 gathered relevant data from children’s hospitals in early 2022 and from pediatric physicians and other healthcare organizations as well as available clinical resources, compliance with best practices, and efforts to promote diversity, equity and inclusion among patients and staff.
