Best Children’s Hospitals in Michigan

U.S. News & World Report have released its rankings of the best children's hospitals and three Michigan pediatric hospitals have made the cut.

When it comes to the care of our kids, we’ll take nothing but the best and a recent release from U.S. News & World Report gives parents a definitive list of the best hospitals in Michigan and beyond. 

To rank hospitals for this list, U.S. News and World Report gathered key clinical data from 200 hospitals and for the children’s hospital category, focused on 10 pediatric specialties. Hospitals are then measured based on patient safety, infection prevention, adequacy of nursing staff and where pediatric specialists would send their sickest patients. 

The 2022-23 edition of the Best Children’s Hospitals list places Boston Children’s Hospital in the number one spot nationwide for the ninth year in a row. In the Midwest, that honor goes to Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center in Cincinnati, Ohio.

Three Michigan hospitals have also made the top-50 cut in pediatric specialty areas like cancer treatment, diabetes and endocrinology, neonatology and more. Here’s a breakdown of how Michigan’s top performing children’s hospitals scored.
