Top-Ranked Pediatric Hospitals for Pulmonology

These are the 50 top-ranked centers for children with serious respiratory problems. Successful management of asthma, cystic fibrosis and muscular dystrophy were among the kinds of data, collected from a detailed U.S. News survey of children's hospitals, that produced 83.3 percent of each hospital's score. The other 16.7 percent reflects how many of 450 pediatric pulmonologists responding to surveys in 2012, 2013 and 2014 recommended the hospital.
