Rankings of nearly 200 of the nation’s children’s hospitals identify the top 50 in each of 10 specialties. The Mayo Clinic Children’s Center was one of only 19 children’s hospitals across the country to rank in all 10 pediatric specialties in 2015-2016.

Mayo Clinic and its Children’s Center is the medical center most recognized as a top choice for patients and families by U.S. News & World Report and many other ranking organizations.

“This is a very exciting time for the Mayo Clinic Children’s Center”, says hospital director Randall Flick, M.D. “With our most recent launch of the proton beam therapy for childhood cancer and stem cell treatment for children with heart disease, we look forward to what we are capable of accomplishing for many more years to come.”
