CHOC Children’s has been recognized by U.S. News & World Report as one of only 50 pediatric facilities in the nation to earn best children’s hospital. CHOC specialties honored in the 2019-20 Best Children’s Hospitals rankings include:

  • Diabetes/endocrinology
  • Cancer (earning a “Top 20” ranking)
  • Neonatology
  • Neurology/Neurosurgery
  • Pulmonology
  • Urology

“The national recognition for CHOC’s cancer program is well-deserved. There’s nowhere else I’d rather have gone through treatment than CHOC,” says 17-year-old Sydney Sigafus, CHOC patient and cancer survivor. “Everyone who works at CHOC cares about you as a person, not just a patient. I was included in every decision and conversation about my care.”

In addition, CHOC Children’s is being recognized for exceptional performance in driving employee engagement and is a recipient of Survey Solutions 2018 Workplace of the Year Award. CHOC joins a list of only 45 healthcare organizations that have achieved the highest levels of employee engagement coupled with below-average levels of employee disengagement within the Survey Solutions national database.

“An engaged workforce is essential to the delivery of safe, high-quality, patient-centered care,” said Joe Cabral, chief human resources officer and president, Workforce Solutions, Press Ganey, an industry leader in measuring, understanding and improving caregiver engagement. “This year’s award winners have inspired and aligned employees across the enterprise around a shared mission to transform care. We are proud to partner with these leaders and celebrate their achievements.”

“We understand how scary it can be for parents whose children are dealing with life-threatening illnesses or injuries. That’s why we are committed to the highest standards of care, safety and service,” says James Cappon, MD, CHOC’s chief quality officer in the best children’s hospital announcement. “While we are proud of our accolades, including being named a best children’s hospital, we remain focused on preserving the magic of childhood for all kids, whether they are seriously ill or healthy, or somewhere in between.”
