MIAMI, FL (July 2, 2004)….For the third year in a row, Miami Children’s Hospital (MCH) has been ranked among the nation’s top pediatric hospitals in U.S. News & World Report’s 15th annual report on “America’s Best Hospitals.”
“To be ranked by U.S.News & World Report for three consecutive years is a significant achievement,” said Thomas M.

Through their dedication, we continue to earn the recognition of our peers throughout the country.”
The special U.S.News & World Report magazine edition, which will become available on newsstands on July 5, lists top hospitals in 17 medical specialty categories, including cancer, heart and heart surgery, orthopaedics, gastroenterology and more. In pediatrics, 150 board-certified pediatricians throughout the nation were asked to select top pediatric hospitals anywhere in the country.
Miami Children’s Hospital was also locally recognized by South Florida Parenting Magazine and its readers.
