USNews & World Report Names Arnold Palmer Hospital Among Nation's Best Children's Hospital
Arnold Palmer Hospital is the only hospital in Central Florida
to be included in the rankings.
Arnold Palmer Hospital for Children has been ranked 30th for heart
and heart surgery, and 28th for orthopedics in U.S. News & World
Report's 2010 edition of America's Best Children's Hospitals. The annual
rankings included the 30 top hospitals in cancer, diabetes and endocrinology,
gastroenterology, heart and heart surgery, kidney disorders, neonatology,
neurology and neurosurgery, orthopedics, respiratory disorders, and urology.
"It is an honor to be included in this prestigious list alongside some of the
most well-respected names in pediatric care," states John Bozard, president,
Arnold Palmer Medical Center. "We're very proud of the physicians and staff who lead the
way in providing inspired and advanced care for kids throughout central Florida."
For 2010, 170 pediatric centers were asked to complete a 75-page online survey. Most of
the centers surveyed are members of the National Association of Children's Hospitals and
Related Institutions (NACHRI) and fit the description of standalone centers or a hospital
within a hospital. Hospitals were ranked on how well they did in three areas: reputation,
medical outcomes (such as cancer survival), and care-related indicators of quality (such as
the number of patients, nurse staffing, and availability of specialized programs).
