The number three rating goes to Seattle Children’s. Prioritizing specialty care and patient safety make Seattle Children’s a rising star in the Pacific Northwest. The largest craniofacial center in the nation calls Seattle Children’s Hospital (SCH) home. This team of elite surgeons provides care for cleft palates and other rare facial disorders affecting children. Last December, the SCH craniofacial team received national recognition for fulfilling a young boy’s Christmas wish to smile by providing corrective surgery for a rare nerve disorder. SCH is the primary pediatric referral hospital for Washington, Alaska, Montana and Idaho, making it the largest care radius in the United States. The first children’s hospital west of the Mississippi, SCH continues to lead the charge in trimming excess and waste out of healthcare through “lean healthcare.”
