A message of gratitude: Thank you for making Boston Children’s #1

The 2017-18 U.S. News & World Report “Best Children’s Hospitals” rankings were released this morning, and thanks to all of you, Boston Children’s Hospital has once again been named the #1 children’s hospital in the nation.

We know how much these results mean to you when deciding to partner with us in caring for your patients and families — particularly when they need to travel great distances. This ranking is a testament to your partnership and the trust that you and your families have placed in us. We will never stop striving to earn that trust, and we will always provide a welcoming, inclusive environment for all families, whether they’re coming from just down the street or from across our global community.

While we can’t capture all of the moments that went into this ranking, we’ve created this video to give you just a taste of what can happen when all of us — researchers, clinicians, administrators, support staff, innovators, patients and families — strive together to make the impossible possible.

For all you do, for your families and for the Community of Care that we have built together, thank you.


Warmest regards,

Sandra L. Fenwick
