Monroe Carell Jr. Children's Hospital at Vanderbilt is again named among the top pediatric health care hospitals in U.S. News & World Report magazine's annual Best Children's Hospitals rankings.
The Children's Hospitals rankings for 2015-2016 recognize top performers among the nation's 184 designated pediatric hospitals. Children’s Hospital has been ranked every year by U.S. News since the inception of the publication’s pediatric rankings, now in its ninth year.
Vanderbilt University Medical Center, which includes Children's Hospital, is designated as a Magnet hospital by the American Nurses Credentialing Center. Magnet Recognition is a much sought-after distinction for health care institutions, which must satisfy a demanding set of criteria measuring the strength and quality of nursing. Magnet hospitals are known as places where nurses deliver excellent patient care and have a high level of job satisfaction. Magnet hospitals also foster open communication between nurses and members of the health care team and provide nurse involvement in decision-making about patient care.
