NEW YORK, Feb. 5 (UPI) --
The Children's Hospital of Philadelphia was ranked the top children's hospital in the United States, officials of Parents magazine said.



Hospitals were ranked by Parents editors with input from a team of medical advisers based on their responses to detailed questions in the following areas: survival rates for childhood cancer, pediatric heart disease, and other critical conditions; their experience in performing certain complex procedures; the depth of the research program; safeguards to prevent medical errors; staffing ratios and quality; community outreach; and services that address the emotional needs of families of outpatients and inpatients.



The remaining Top 10 pediatric hospitals included:



-- Boston Children's Hospital.



-- Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center.



-- Children's Hospital of Wisconsin, Milwaukee.



-- Children's Hospital Colorado, Aurora, Colo.



-- Children's Hospital of Pittsburgh of UP MC.

"Making an informed decision about your child's health care can be overwhelming, especially in the face of a serious illness," Dana Points, editor in chief of Parents, said in a statement. "We created this guide with the hope of making it easier to find a great hospital when you need one most."
