Best NICU Hospitals in the Country
Since we staff NICU travel nurse jobs, we thought you might be interested to learn what hospitals made the list for having the best NICU centers in the country. To make a list of the 10 best children’s hospitals in the country, U.S. News evaluated 179 pediatric centers in 10 different specialty areas; to help them make their final rankings, they asked 150 specialists where they would send the sickest children if they could choose from any children’s hospital.
In evaluating NICU centers across the country, U.S. News utilized a variety of factors to make their list of the top 50 neonatal centers. Some of these factors included the center’s reputation with specialists, the ability to prevent ICU infections, neonatal patient volume, nurse-patient ratio, and advanced clinical services. For 2013-2014, the top five hospitals with the best NICU centers included:
- Boston Children’s Hospital in Boston, MA
- Rainbow Babies and Children’s Hospital in Cleveland, OH
- St. Louis Children’s Hospital-Washington University in Saint Louis, MO
- Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia in Philadelphia, PA
- Nationwide Children’s Hospital in Columbus, OH
We would like to congratulate these top 5 hospitals and all the others on the list for the wonderful job they do caring for the smallest and most vulnerable babies. We would also like to thank the nurses in these NICU units who work hard every day to save these precious lives.
