CMN hospitals among Americas Best--USNandWR
RESEARCH TRIANGLE PARK, N.C. (6/12/08)--Last week's issue of U.S. News & World Reports recognized the Credit Unions for Kids program for its contributions to the Children's Miracle Network (CMN) in its "America's Best Children's Hospitals" edition. CMN partnered with the publication to highlight the teamwork of hospitals, sponsors and media partners working to provide the finest in pediatric health care, according to Joe Dearborn, managing director of Credit Unions for Kids. "America's Best Children's Hospitals" ranks the top 30 hospitals in seven areas: general pediatrics, cancer, digestive orders, heart and heart surgery, neonatal care, neurology and neurosurgery, and respiratory disorders. "We are extremely proud that the top 10 children's hospitals, as selected by U.S. News & World Report, are Children's Miracle Network hospitals," said Jim Hall, CMN president/CEO. "It is support from programs like Credit Unions for Kids that enable these hospitals to provide such world-class, specialized care," Hall noted. Of 143 hospitals considered eligible for the rankings, 113 responded. The research, conducted by RTI International, combines data from a survey of physicians, a direct survey of pediatrics hospitals (including freestanding children's hospitals and children's "hospitals within a hospital"), and other resources. Each hospital's score is based on key components such as outcomes (including mortality rate and readmission rate), reputation, and care-related considerations such as specialized patient services, nursing care and advanced technology. These represent three key aspects of quality hospital care: structure, process and outcomes. For the rankings, use the "America's Best Children's Hospitals" resource link.
