It's getting close to that time of year. U.S. News has settled on the dates when we will notify hospitals that have earned national, regional or state ranking for 2013-14. We will inform ranked hospitals by embargoed email.
Notification will follow this schedule:
Best Children's Hospitals, May 28
Best Hospitals, July 2
The 2013-14 rankings will be published online according to this schedule:
Best Children's Hospitals, June 11
Best Hospitals, July 16
A print version is scheduled for publication in late August.
To give hospitals time to study the factors that were considered and understand the modest methodology changes we're making this year, the Best Children's Hospitals notification emails also will include a link to a downloadable PDF of the updated 2013-14 pediatric methodology report, and the Best Hospitals email will have a corresponding link to the adult methodology report.
