The Triangle remains a national leader in terms of the quality of its children’s hospitals, U.S. News & World Report said Thursday.
The magazine ranked the top 30 children’s hospitals in 10 areas: Cancer, diabetes and endocrinology, gastroenterology, heart and heart surgery, kidney, neonatology, neurology and neurological surgery, orthopedics, pulmonology and urology.
The North Carolina Children’s Hospital at UNC Hospitals was ranked as the No. 9 hospital for pulmonary care and No. 23 in diabetes and endocrinology care.
Duke Children’s Hospital and Health Care was ranked in six categories: No. 18 in cancer, No. 23 in diabetes and endocrinology, No. 30 in gastroenterology, No. 24 in heart and heart surgery, No. 19 in neonatology and No. 20 in pulmonology.
The Triangle’s third children’s hospital, at WakeMed Health & Hospitals, opened last month and was not included in any of the rankings.
The full results of the report will be available in the magazine’s August edition, which hits newsstands in late July.
