U.S. News & World Report's Best Children's Hospital list for 2023-2024, released 21 June, said 11 children's hospitals are at the top of their game when it comes to 10 pediatric specialties. This year, 11 children's hospitals are included on this list due to a tie in the diabetes and endocrinology category.
U.S. News gathered subjective data from more than 15,000 pediatric specialists and clinical data from close to 200 children's hospitals to develop its Best Children's Hospitals 2023-2024 listings.

The hospital has the only level 4 neonatal intensive care unit, which offers care to infants at all level 3 NICUs in the area. The hospital discovered a "super antibody" it believes will inform new vaccines and offered a specialized approach to reduce stays in the NICU for opioid-exposed newborns.
Steve Davis, MD, president and CEO: "This distinction only confirms what we have always known — that we have outstanding, talented team members who are unmatched in their dedication to ensuring that all children have access to exceptional care."
