4th in the nation! 2nd to none in Texas. 

The 2017-18 edition of Best Children's Hospitals by U.S. News & World Report ranked Texas Children’s Hospital fourth in the country among the nearly 200 pediatric centers. For the ninth straight year, Texas Children's Hospital was placed on the Best Children's Hospital Honor Roll of best pediatric institutions.

Texas Children’s is one of only 10 children’s hospitals across the country to achieve the Honor Roll designation, and the only hospital in Texas – and the southern U.S. – awarded this distinction. Over the last decade, no other pediatric hospital in the state has ever achieved an overall ranking as high as Texas Children’s. 

Each year, in addition to ranking pediatric hospitals overall, U.S. News also ranks the top 50 pediatric hospitals across 10 major subspecialties. This year, Texas Children’s Heart Center® ranks as the best cardiology and heart surgery service in the country. In addition, six subspecialties ranked in the top five.

#1     Cardiology and Heart Surgery
#2     Pulmonology
#4     Cancer
#4     Gastroenterology & GI Surgery
#4     Nephrology (kidney disorders)

#4     Neurology and Neurosurgery
#6     Diabetes and Endocrinology
#6     Urology
#11   Neonatology
#16   Orthopedics
