New York Presbyterian is the top children’s hospital in the state and the 8th best in
the nation, according to a new U.S. News and World Report ranking. The hospital also received the highest
possible scores in the categories of brain surgery mortality, technology and
tetralogy of fallot mortality ($10 bucks to whomever can tell me what that
means without clicking here). According
to the magazine, this year’s rankings
are more accurate because they no longer rely exclusively on reputation, but
include mortality data for several challenging procedures. Including real data in your rankings?
Hmm… Now that’s an idea. You can see the full rankings here.
