Texas Children’s ranks no. 1 in cardiology and heart surgery for fourth consecutive year


For the fourth year in a row, Texas Children’s Hospital is the best place in the country for children in need of pediatric cardiology and heart surgery. The multidisciplinary team at Texas Children’s Heart Center® has combined cutting-edge technology with a compassionate and family centered approach to care for more than 65 years. Cardiologists, congenital heart surgeons, cardiac anesthetists and cardiac intensivists are world-renowned leaders in the field and work together to treat some of the rarest and most complex heart cases from Houston, across Texas, the U.S. and around the world.

Additionally, Texas Children’s ranks fourth among all children’s hospitals nationally and in the top 10 in nine of U.S. News & World Report-recognized pediatric subspecialties. Seven Texas Children’s subspecialties rank in the top five, including neurology & neurosurgery and nephrology, which both rank second. Texas Children’s is also one of only 10 children’s hospitals across the country to achieve Honor Roll designation, and the only hospital in the state of Texas awarded this distinction.

Achieving this honor year after year takes great technology, facilities and expertise, but the most important thing it takes is great people. People who care deeply about caring for children. And we’re honored that so many people like that choose to work at Texas Children’s. For more information, visit texaschildrens.org/best.
