HARTFORD, Conn. — Connecticut Children's has been ranked as the top neonatal care program in the state and one of the top 40 in the country in a nationwide survey.
The ranking is according to the U.S. News & World Report’s Best Children’s Hospital rankings which were released Tuesday. Over 1,500 programs nationwide were ranked in the survey.
Connecticut Children’s has two neonatal intensive care units located in Hartford and Farmington. The health system also provides newborn delivery services at 13 hospitals, across two states, including nine total NICUs.
“This is important for all families because Connecticut Children’s offers a truly comprehensive, regionalized, clinically integrated network for newborn care across the region. It means all babies who are with us for care will have all of their healthcare needs cared for by the best pediatric experts from birth to young adulthood," said Dr. Jim Moore, President, Connecticut Children’s Specialty Group.
In 2021, Connecticut Children’s cared for more than half of all NICU infants in the state, the hospital said.
In addition to the neonatology ranking, the hospital was also ranked in the Top 50 programs nationally by U.S. News & World Report in gastroenterology and GI surgery, as well as in urology.
