UH Rainbow ranks in eight pediatric specialties with six in top 25

University Hospitals Rainbow Babies & Children's Hospital (UH Rainbow) once again earned high recognition in U.S. News & World Report's Best Children's Hospitals annual rankings. UH Rainbow is ranked No. 6 in neonatology, and among the nation’s 25 best children’s hospitals in orthopedics, cancer, diabetes and endocrinology, pulmonology and urology.

In total, UH Rainbow ranks among the nation’s top 50 children’s hospitals in 8 medical and surgical specialties including neonatology (#6), pulmonology (#20), diabetes & endocrinology (#21), orthopedics (#22), cancer (#22), urology (#24), nephrology (#43), and gastroenterology & GI surgery (#44). UH Rainbow has ranked among America’s Best Children’s Hospitals every year since 1991 and the inception of U.S. News rankings.

UH Rainbow has long been regarded as an international leader in the treatment of critically ill and extremely low birth-weight babies since pioneering neonatology in the 1960s, culminating in opening one of the nation's first family-centered NICUs with space for parents to stay with their baby, UH Rainbow's Quentin & Elisabeth Alexander Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU).

"It is rewarding to be recognized for the work our talented team of physicians and staff do each day, but even more rewarding to see the impact our care and compassion can make in the lives of our patients and their families," says Marlene Miller, MD, MSc, Pediatrician-in-Chief, University Hospitals and Chair, Department of Pediatrics at UH Rainbow. "It is the reason we do what we do."
