Children's Hospital of Il receives recognition for pediatric urology program

U.S. News and World Report ranks the Children’s Hospital of Illinois Pediatric Urology 41st in the nation for its nursing, clinical, patient and family services. 

The report evaluates hospitals in six different areas. The ranking gives the Children’s Hospital Pediatric Urology program high marks in the areas of infection-prevention, and minimizing surgical complications. 

This is the seventh year of U.S. News & World Report Best Children’s Hospital rankings. The idea behind the rankings is to give families of sick children information on best medical practices.
