Excellent Care Yields Top Rankings for SLU Pediatric Programs

For pediatricians at Saint Louis University School of Medicine and SSM Health Cardinal Glennon Children’s Hospital, providing outstanding care fulfills their mission to improve children’s health. The annual U.S. News & World Report Best Children’s Hospital rankings reaffirmed our immense dedication to the community and its children.

Led by SLU faculty, SSM Health’s Pediatric Cardiology and Cardiothoracic Surgery (CT) and Neonatology programs ranked #1 in St. Louis and #1 in Missouri. Three additional programs also ranked in the top 50 nationally based on overall clinical outcomes, efficacy of care, patient safety, and staffing. 

Andrew J. White, M.D., the Robert W. Wilmott Endowed professor and chair of the pediatric department, credits the excellent rankings to the care they offer to patients and families that goes beyond the bedside. 

“This is a tremendous recognition,” White said. “For us, it’s not only about the skill and the quality of our doctors and nurses — it’s also about the processes and systems we have put in place that help us deliver outstanding care.” 

SLU’s tradition of providing compassionate care, excellent medical education, and service to our greater community stems from its focus on caring for the whole family, and training the next generation of physicians to sustain our mission into the future.
