PHOENIX (CBS5) -

Phoenix Children's Hospital has once again been named in U.S. News & World Report's 'best children's hospitals' rankings.

This marks the fourth year that the Valley medical center for children has been the only Arizona hospital to make the list. The list highlighted Phoenix Children's Hospital in the following categories:

  • Cancer
  • Cardiology and Heart Surgery
  • Neurology and Neurosurgery
  • Orthopedics

"It's very gratifying to be listed among the best children's hospitals across the country," said Robert L. Meyer, President and CEO of Phoenix Children's. "I offer sincere congratulations to the entire staff and physicians at the Hospital for their role in achieving this milestone. We're honored U.S. News & World Report has recognized our outstanding team again this year."

U.S. News introduced the Best Children's Hospitals rankings in 2007 to help families of sick children find the best medical care available. The rankings open the door to an array of detailed information about each hospital's performance.

"Every Best Children's Hospital deserves high praise," said U.S. News Health Rankings Editor Avery Comarow. "We know how important it is to parents to have confidence in pediatric centers that show dedication and expertise in caring for a child facing a life-threatening, rare or demanding illness."

The Best Children's Hospitals rankings highlight U.S. News's top 50 U.S. pediatric facilities in cancer, cardiology and heart surgery, diabetes and endocrinology, gastroenterology and GI surgery, neonatology, nephrology, neurology and neurosurgery, orthopedics, pulmonology and urology. Eighty-nine hospitals ranked in at least one specialty, based on a combination of clinical data and reputation among pediatric specialists.
