Each year, U.S. News & World Report releases its list of Best Children's Hospitals, which names the nation's leading pediatric hospitals based on a combination of surveys, research and data gathering.

I'm thrilled to share that the rankings were released this morning, and Texas Children's Hospital has again been named one of the nation's best children's hospitals.

We're #1 in Houston. We're #1 in Texas.

One of only 11 hospitals in the nation to achieve the Honor Roll designation, Texas Children's is the only hospital in Texas — and the entire southern region of the U.S. — awarded this distinction.

Here's a closer look at how we ranked in each category:

For Texas Children's Hospital and our academic partner Baylor College of Medicine, it's a tremendous honor to receive such high accolades. These rankings reflect the hard work and dedication of each member of the Texas Children's workforce — from doctors and nurses to researchers and clinicians.

But even more importantly, being ranked as a top pediatric hospital in the nation reiterates just how committed Texas Children's is to creating a community of health children locally, nationally and internationally. Our goal has and always will be to heal sick children by providing the finest pediatric care, education and research.

Congratulations to everyone involved and thanks to our community for your continued support.
