Statistics and Outcomes

Seattle Children’s Hospital’s Statistics and Outcomes

Seattle Children’s provides statistics such as volumes (the number of surgeries performed or patients seen) and outcomes (results of treatment given to patients) to help you make better decisions about your child’s care.

We also gather data on how well the treatments we provide work so we can identify ways to improve. We share our data with organizations that manage national databases so that our results can be compared to other hospitals’ results.

We are proud to have outcomes that are consistently among the best in the nation. In 2019 – for the 27th year in a row – U.S. News & World Report ranked Seattle Children’s among the nation's top children's hospitals.
