U.S. News & World Report’s 2018 children’s hospital rankings are out and the Medical University of South Carolina (MUSC) in Charleston mad the list.
The Post and Courier newspaper reports the magazine assessed the Top 50 centers in 10 pediatric specialties and six of MUSC’s made the list. North Carolina-based RTI International did the research.
MUSC’s highest ranking came in at 11th for pediatric cardiology and heart surgery. It also ranked 25th in cancer treatment and 29th in nephrology.
The hospital plans to open a new $389 million children’s hospital by the end of 2019.
Boston Children’s Hospital was ranked by the magazine as the best children’s hospital in the nation in all of its specialties.
