Top-Ranked Pediatric Hospitals for Urology

These are the 50 top-ranked centers for children with serious urological conditions. Bloodstream infections from urinary catheters, nurse staffing and patient volume 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 urologists responding to surveys in 2012, 2013 and 2014 recommended the hospital for serious cases.
