University of Michigan Health C.S. Mott Children’s Hospital was named the top children’s hospital in the state by U.S. News & World Report.

Mott, part of Michigan Medicine, was recognized among the nation’s best in cardiology and heart surgery, cancer, nephrology, orthopedics, neurology and neurosurgery, gastroenterology and gastrointestinal surgery, pulmonology, urology and diabetes and endocrinology in the 2022-23 Best Children’s Hospitals rankings released June 14.

The hospital’s highest ranking was in pediatric cardiology and heart surgery, ranking tenth in the country. The Mott Congenital Heart Center, an international referral center for children with complex congenital heart problems, is one of the largest congenital heart programs in the U.S.  

“We’re proud to remain a leader in the state for pediatric care,” said Luanne Thomas Ewald, FACHE, M.H.A., chief operating officer at Mott and Von Voigtlander Women’s Hospital. “These achievements wouldn’t be possible without our entire team’s tireless commitment to high quality patient care, innovation and research.”

The annual U. S. News report features the top 50 pediatric health care facilities out of 119 children’s hospitals assessed in the country.

“Families travel from across the country and globe to receive complex, specialized care for their children who often face rare and life-threatening conditions,” said Nicole Sroufe, M.D., M.P.H., Mott chief clinical officer.

“We’re grateful for our exceptional teams of doctors, nurses and staff whose experience, compassion and dedication to growth allow us to best serve the children and families who entrust us with their care.”  

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.

“We’re pleased to again be recognized as a top-ranked hospital that excels in treating high-risk cases,” said Kelly Baird-Cox, D.N.P., R.N., Mott chief nursing officer.

“Our teams are honored to serve every family and child who comes through our doors.”
