An annual report by U.S. News & World Report ranks the nation's top 50 children's medical centers by 10 pediatric categories including cancer, neurology, diabetes and endocrinology.

The report, released Tuesday, places Boston Children's Hospital at the top of its honor roll for 2017-18, with Children's Hospital of Philadelphia and Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center rounding out the top three.

The nephrology program, the gastroenterology program, the Aflac Cancer Center, the orthopaedics program, neonatology and the Sibley Heart Center all ranked in the top 20 for their individual specialties.

UI officials call the U.S. News rankings the "only comprehensive source of quality-related information on U.S. pediatric centers".

"We are honored to know what U.S. News & World Report recognizes our commitment to integrate unsurpassed clinical care and innovative research to find cures and save children with cancer", said Dr. James R. Downing, St Jude president and chief executive officer, according to PR Newswire.

This year's rankings will be published in the U.S. News & World Report's "Best Hospitals 2018" guidebook and available on newsstands September 12.

The rankings also considered responses to a survey of more than 3,000 pediatric specialists, who were asked to name up to 10 hospitals they consider best in their specialty for children with serious or hard medical problems, U.S. News said.

Affiliated with Columbia and Cornell universities, the hospital has consistently landed in the top rankings since the survey was launched 11 years ago.

"Clearly, the biggest validation they receive comes from those they serve, but these annual rankings certainly confirm that collectively we are leading health innovation for all the lives we touch at our Children's Hospital".

They are based on multiple factors, including patient safety, patient outcomes, resources for patient care, how health care is delivered, programs to prevent infections, and a national survey of pediatric specialists. Children's ranked in each of the 10 specialty areas.
