U.S. News & World Report has ranked Duke Children’s Hospital among the top 50 children’s medical centers nationally in each of the 10 specialties that comprise the magazine’s analysis.

The 2017-18 rankings were created from clinical data collected through a detailed survey sent to 187 facilities across the country. Part of each hospital’s score is derived from surveys of board-certified pediatric specialists and sub-specialists who were asked where they would send the sickest children in their specialty. The rankings are as follows:

  • Cancer (31)
  • Cardiology and heart surgery (38)
  • Diabetes and endocrinology (35)
  • Gastroenterology and GI surgery (41)
  • Neonatology (28)
  • Nephrology (30)
  • Neurology and neurosurgery (33)
  • Orthopedics (49)
  • Pulmonology (23)
  • Urology (44)

“We are proud and honored to be ranked by U.S. News & World Report in 10 programmatic areas,” said Ann Reed, M.D., chair of the Duke Department of Pediatrics and physician-in-chief of Duke Children’s. “I firmly believe this distinction reflects the high quality care we deliver and our outstanding commitment to our patients and their families.”
