ANN ARBOR, Mich. – University of Michigan Health C.S. Mott Children’s Hospital has been recognized as the top children’s hospital in Michigan and among the best in the nation by U.S. News & World Report.

Mott was the only hospital in the state to be ranked in all 10 pediatric specialty areas evaluated in the 2023-2024 Best Children’s Hospital rankings released today. The institution was recognized among the nation’s best in cardiology and heart surgery, cancer, gastroenterology and GI surgery, neurology and neurosurgery, diabetes and endocrinology, nephrology, orthopedics, neonatology, pulmonology and urology.

We are honored to again be awarded a ‘best’ children’s hospital designation, said Luanne Thomas Ewald, M.H.A., FACHE, chief operating officer at Mott and Von Voigtlander Women’s Hospital.

“This recognition is a reflection of the hard work and commitment of our doctors, nurses and staff who combine world-class medical expertise with compassion and innovation to provide exceptional treatment for every child and family we see.”

The U.S. News Best Children's Hospitals rankings rely on data and surveys of thousands of pediatric specialists. The rankings use objective measures such as patient outcomes, including mortality and infection rates, as well as health equity and available clinical resources and compliance with best practices, to evaluate 119 children’s hospitals in the country.

In every specialty evaluated, Mott ranked highest in the state and tied for third best children’s hospital in the Midwest region.

“This designation is one measure of success in our mission to advance pediatric research and medicine while providing exemplary specialty care for children with rare and life-threatening diseases,” said Kimberly Monroe, M.D., Mott interim chief clinical officer.

Mott has been ranked each of the 17 years U.S. News has evaluated children’s hospitals, which is intended to help parents of sick children and their doctors find the best place to treat their illness or condition.

“We are grateful for our extraordinary teams’ dedication to providing remarkable and personalized care for families who come to us for answers for their children’s complex medical needs,” said Kelly Baird- Cox, Mott chief nursing officer.
