Awards and Recognition
In 2012, U.S. News & World Report ranked Seattle Children’s Hospital among the nation’s top children’s hospitals for the 20th consecutive year. Children’s ranked 6th in this year’s honor roll – meaning it’s the 6th highest ranked children’s hospital in the nation – the hospital’s highest ranking yet. Last year Children’s ranked 7th.
Children’s was also 3rd in the country for its nephrology program, 5th for urology, 7th for cancer and 8th for neurology/neurosurgery. Other Children’s programs receiving top recognition by U.S. News included cardiology/heart surgery, pulmonary, orthopedics, neonatology, gastroenterology and diabetes/endocrinology.
In 2008, the American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC) awarded Magnet status to Seattle Children’s Hospital in recognition for its nursing excellence. Less than 4% of hospitals in the United States have qualified for Magnet status and Seattle Children’s Hospital is the first pediatric hospital in the Pacific Northwest to achieve this distinction.
In 2013, Seattle Children’s was named to Becker’s Hospital Review's list of 100 Great Places to Work in Healthcare. 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!
