Kids are our specialty.

We’re proud to share that once again, U.S. News & World Report has ranked Connecticut Children’s a top children’s hospital in the nation.

Kids are our specialty. That’s not just a catchy slogan: It’s a fact. As the only health system in the state dedicated exclusively to children, kids are simply what we’re all about.

We’re experts in more than 30 pediatric specialties, and make it easy to access care from anywhere with Video Visits. We’re a global authority on rare pediatric conditions. Our researchers have been to space! (Well, their mice have.)

And because we know so much about kids – and care so much about kids – we work especially hard to create an amazing experience for every child and family. In response to the pandemic, that has included designing an enhanced safety program to give parents peace of mind and, above all, keep kids safe and sound.

We excel at caring for kids because we love caring for kids. So while our healthcare heroes don’t do it for the awards, this recognition from U.S. News & World Report is truly an honor – and a nice reminder of what we happen to think already: Connecticut Children’s is among the best in the nation.
