U.S. News & World Report has ranked Joseph M. Sanzari Children’s Hospital at Hackensack Meridian Health Hackensack University Medical Center in pediatric neurology andneurosurgery specialties in the new 2017-18 Best Children’s Hospitals rankings published online today.

Joseph M. Sanzari Children’s Hospital ranked 45 in Pediatric neurology andneurosurgery.

U.S. News introduced the Best Children’s Hospitals rankings in 2007 to help families of children with rare or life-threatening illnesses find the best medical care available. They are the only comprehensive source of quality-related information on U.S. pediatric centers.

The 11th annual rankings recognize the top 50 pediatric facilities across the U.S. in 10 pediatric specialties, including cancer, cardiology and heart surgery, diabetes and endocrinology, gastroenterology and gastrointestinal surgery, neonatology, nephrology, neurology and neurosurgery, orthopedics, pulmonology and urology.

“I am proud of our team members for achieving this significant recognition,” said Ihor Sawczuk, M.D., president of Hackensack University Medical Center. “This national ranking is a reflection of their commitment to providing the highest quality care to our youngest patients.”

“I want to commend our pediatric neurology and neurosurgery team members for their exceptional skill and dedication,” said Stephen Percy, Jr., M.D., MBA, FAAP, interim chair of the Department of Pediatrics at Hackensack University Medical Center. “This recognition is a direct result of their outstanding, comprehensive and collaborative care of our patients and their families.”

“The pediatric centers we rank in Best Children’s Hospitals deliver exceptionally high-quality care and deserve to be recognized for their commitment,” said U.S. News Health Rankings Editor Avery Comarow. “Children with life-threatening illnesses or rare conditions need the state-of-the-art services and expertise these hospitals provide every day.”

The U.S. News Best Children’s Hospitals rankings rely on clinical data and on an annual survey of pediatric specialists. The rankings methodology considers clinical outcomes, such as mortality and infection rates, efficiency and coordination of care delivery and compliance with "best practices.”

Survival rates, adequacy of nurse staffing, procedure and patient volume, availability of programs for particular illnesses and conditions and much more can be viewed on
