Five Nicklaus Children’s Hospital specialty programs are again identified among the nation’s best by U.S. News & World Report in its 2023-24 “Best Children’s Hospitals” survey results, posted online today. No other hospital in South Florida has more ranked programs.

Nicklaus Children’s was recognized as follows:

“It is always a tremendous honor to be recognized for the excellence of our pediatric specialty programs,” said Matthew A. Love, president and CEO of Nicklaus Children’s Health System. “For the children and families we serve, it means that world-class care is available right here in our community, furthering our promise that Nicklaus Children’s is the hospital where your child matters most.”

Since 2008, numerous Nicklaus Children’s specialty programs have been annually ranked among the nation’s best by U.S. News.

Nearly 200 hospitals participate in the annual survey. The methodology is based on clinical outcomes such as patient survival, infection rates and complications; the level and quality of hospital resources directly related to patient care such as staffing, technology and special services; delivery of healthcare programs that prevent infections and adherence to best practices; and expert opinion among pediatric specialists and subspecialists. The survey is updated every year, designed to account for new treatments and evidence-based best practices, informed by leading experts in the field.
