Children’s Hospital Colorado has announced that they have once again been recognized among the best-of-the-best children’s hospitals in the nation.

According to the 2020-21 Best Children’s Hospitals rankings released on Tuesday by U.S. News & World Report, Children’s Colorado earned the No. 6 spot among the top 10 children’s hospitals on the Honor Roll, and again ranked highly in all ten recognized specialty areas.

“More incredible still is our teams’ dedication and consistency, a tireless effort that keeps us among the best pediatric hospitals in the nation year after year,” said Jena Hausmann, president and CEO of Children’s Colorado. “Kids really are incredibly different, and this is what different looks like.”

The 14th annual rankings recognize the top 50 pediatric facilities across the U.S. in ten pediatric specialties: cancer, cardiology and heart surgery, diabetes and endocrinology, gastroenterology and gastrointestinal surgery, neonatology, nephrology, neurology and neurosurgery, orthopedics, pulmonology and lung surgery, and urology.

Hospitals received points for being ranked in a specialty, and higher-ranking hospitals receive more points. The Best Children's Hospitals Honor Roll recognizes the ten hospitals that received the most points overall.
