Mayo Clinic’s Children’s Center is ranked as a top-performing children’s hospital in Iowa, Minnesota, and the Dakotas, according to a new report by U.S. News and World.

Of 118 children’s hospitals in the U.S., Mayo Clinic ranked as a top-performing provider in seven of 10 pediatric specialties.

U.S. News and World Report ranked the children’s center highest in neonatology (#13).

"It is rewarding to see the efforts of our multidisciplinary team in Neonatology recognized in these rankings," Christopher Colby, division chairman for Neonatal Medicine, said in a press release. "We had excellent performance in the quality and process domains in the U.S. News survey. The growth and support of the Fetal Care Center, along with the Teleneonatology Program generated a higher volume of newborns with complex medical and surgical conditions."
