The Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP) was ranked ranked among the country’s finest in the 2016-17 U.S. News & World Report's Honor Roll of Best Children’s Hospitals once again. Eight of CHOP’s clinical programs ranked within the top three nationally in each of the ten specialty areas evaluated in the U.S. News survey.

The level of clinical excellence among the hospitals evaluated makes our inclusion gratifying and I am proud of our dedicated and talented physicians, nurses and clinical support staff for their efforts on behalf of our patients.
