The two hospitals, which affiliated in January 2014, rank best in the Bay Area in cancer, diabetes and endocrinology, gastroenterology and GI surgery, neonatology, neurology and neurosurgery, and orthopedics, according to the magazine, which released the results of its report on June 27, 2017.
The 2017-18 results mark the 11th year of the pediatric rankings report, which serve as a guide of hospitals that excel in treating the sickest children.
“We are delighted that once again UCSF Benioff Children’s Hospitals are among those highly acclaimed hospitals listed by U.S. News,” said Mark Laret, president and chief executive officer of UCSF Health. “Validations such as these rankings are a testament to the tremendous caliber of the physicians, nurses, technicians and other health care providers and staff who are driven each day to provide the best care possible to the children and families they serve,” he said.
“I want to congratulate our physicians, the rest of our clinical team and staff for their commitment to expert and compassionate care of our patients,” said UCSF Benioff Children’s Hospitals President Michael Anderson, MD. “These rankings reflect the strength of our combined children’s hospitals in Oakland and San Francisco, and the world-class research that supports our programs and services.”
