The Bristol-Myers Squibb Children’s Hospital (BMSCH) at Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital has been named one of the nation’s best children’s hospitals, according to the 2016-17 U.S.News & World Report ranking of America’s Best Children’s Hospitals.
BMSCH is the only children’s hospital in New Jersey and one of only 78 children’s hospitals surveyed nationally to earn a place on this list. BMSCH is ranked among the top children’s hospitals in Urology (#27).
The U.S. News Best Children’s Hospitals rankings help parents determine where to get the best medical care for their children. The rankings highlight the top 50 U.S. pediatric facilities in 10 specialties, from cancer to urology.
“Earning this outstanding national recognition for the fourth time is the direct result of a shared commitment among our faculty and community physicians, as well as all partners on our pediatric academic health campus to provide families with the finest pediatric care and destination therapies available anywhere in the United States, directly in the heart of New Jersey,” notes Michael Antoniades, president and chief executive officer of Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital.
The 105-bed, free-standing Bristol-Myers Squibb Children’s Hospital is the focal point of a pediatric academic health campus that also features Rutgers Robert Wood Johnson Medical School’s Child Health Institute of New Jersey, PSE&G Children’s Specialized Hospital and Ronald McDonald House-New Brunswick. The Embrace Kids Foundation provides support to many programs and services offered at BMSCH.
“The Best Children’s Hospitals highlight pediatric centers that offer exceptional care for the kids who need the most help,” said U.S. News Health Rankings Editor Avery Comarow. “Day in and day out, they deliver state-of-the-art medical care.”
The U.S. News Best Children’s Hospitals rankings rely on clinical data and on an annual survey of pediatric specialists. Survival rates, adequacy of nurse staffing, procedure volume and much more can be viewed on health.usnews.com/best-hospitals/pediatric-rankings.
