Awards and Recognition

US News 2013 Ranked Specialties

Seattle Children’s is consistently ranked among the nation’s best children’s hospitals by U.S. News & World Report magazine.

In 2013, Seattle Children’s Hospital received a four-year re-designation as a Magnet hospital from the American Nurses Credentialing Center, sponsor of the Magnet Recognition Program. Magnet hospitals must apply for re-designation every four years and go through a rigorous on-site review to determine if they meet all criteria. Approximately 7% of hospitals nationally qualify for this prestigious award. Seattle Children’s Hospital continues to be the only children’s hospital in the Northwest to achieve Magnet recognition. 

Seattle Children’s was named to Becker’s Hospital Review's list of 100 Great Places to Work in Healthcare in 2013. The organizations were chosen for their robust benefits packages, positive work environments, excellent employee recognition programs and opportunities for professional development and continuing education. Congratulations and thank you to everyone who makes Children’s a great place to work!
