US News and World Report ranks UW Health Children's Hospital one of the best in the nation

At UW Health and American Family Children’s Hospital, your child will be cared for by a team of nationally recognized pediatric heart experts who deliver outstanding results. Both U.S. News & World Report and the Society of Thoracic Surgeons (STS) rank our hospital’s pediatric heart program among the nation’s best.


Most of our patients live normal lives, and those who need surgery typically stay in the hospital less for time than other children getting the same surgery, according to STS. Coming to UW Health means joining with many other families who are smiling – because their child’s heart was superbly treated; because we communicate closely with every family; and because we treat every child as if s/he was our own.
