CHOP Named Best Pediatric Hospital in America by Parents Magazine

This is a nice bit of good news for CHOP, after the last two weeks were dominated by talk of the grisly murder of one of its doctors: Parents Magazine has named the hospital the best in the country for pediatric care. It also earned top marks for its Cardiac Center, Cancer center, and for emergency medicine. (For the record, CHOP ranked first in 6 out of 10 US News + World Report pediatric rankings for 2012-2013.) The March issue in which the rankings appear will be available on newsstands and online February 12th. [Delco Times]
