Hartford, Conn.- Connecticut Children’s is proud to announce that its urology division is the state’s ONLY ranked Urology program in the 2020-2021 U.S. News & World Report’s Best Children’s Hospital rankings released today. At Connecticut Children’s, our new and expanded team of urologic specialists achieved the state’s only ranking thanks to its excellent outcomes and quality patient care. In addition, our video visits and engaging “Don’t Freak Out” video series for parents also set us apart from the competition.
“One of the things we are most proud of is our parent-driven approach to our care and research,” said Carlos Medina, MD, Clinical Director of Urology. “We are the only children’s hospital in the state to offer video visits to our patient families. We also have a team of innovators who are finding engaging ways educate our parents on a broad range of urological health issues. The recognition is certainly an honor, but we don’t do it for the accolades. Our focus and priority are the children of Connecticut and region.”
U.S. News & World Report collects data from nearly 200 children’s hospitals nationwide, taking into consideration clinical outcomes, hospital resources, and delivery of healthcare. This in combination with survey results from pediatric specialists across the country is used to identify the top 50 programs for 10 different specialties.
In addition to its urology ranking, Connecticut Children’s was also ranked in the Top 50 programs nationally by U.S. News & World Report in Gastroenterology, Diabetes and Endocrinology and Neonatal Care.
“The recognition from U.S. News & World Report is a testament to our dedicated physicians, nurses and team members who have continued delivering care during the COVID-19 pandemic while continuing to advance research and clinical outcomes across the health system,” said Jim Shmerling, DHA, FACHE, President & CEO at Connecticut Children’s. “We have made it easier than ever to schedule an appointment with our experts thanks to our comprehensive virtual health program, which includes video visits. We will stop at nothing to keep all children safe and sound as we welcome everyone back for their appointments, surgeries and procedures.”
