NEW BRUNSWICK, NJ — The Healthcare City is once again living up to its name.
The Bristol-Myers Squibb Children’s Hospital at Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital ranked among the country’s best medical center for kids in a new list compiled by U.S. News and World Report. Specifically, the hospital earned the 39th spot for its urology program.
This is the fifth time the New Brunswick hospital has made the list, which was first published in 2007 as a guide for families of children with “rare or life-threatening illnesses” to find top-tier care, according to a news release.
“Earning this outstanding national recognition for the fifth time is the direct result of a shared commitment among our faculty and community physicians, as well as all partners on our pediatric academic health campus,” John Gantner, president and CEO of Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital, said in a statement.
The children’s hospital has 105 beds and provides treatment to children of all ages.
It’s the “focal point of a pediatric academic health campus” that includes Rutgers Robert Wood Johnson Medical School’s Child Health Institute of New Jersey, PSE&G Children’s Specialized Hospital and Ronald McDonald House-New Brunswick, according to the news release.
“We are committed to providing families with the finest pediatric care and destination therapies available anywhere in the United States, directly in the heart of New Jersey,” Gantner said.
The 2017-18 rankings are based on data and a survey of pediatric specialists, according to the hospital. The architects of the list consider clinical outcomes—including mortality and infection rates—efficiency, compliance with best practices and coordination of care
