Quality care means providing the best possible outcomes and partnering with you and your family to make your hospital experience exceptional. That's the big picture, and we always keep it in mind.

When it comes to specific conditions and treatments, quality and safety can be defined in many different ways. In this section, we go into greater detail about the data we collect in several important areas, such as asthma and diabetes care. Although these measures represent just a small cross-section of our quality and safety efforts, they provide a look at how we use data to assess and improve the care we provide.

We are grateful to have been ranked #1 on U.S. News & World Report's list of the best children's hospitals in the nation for the third year in a row, an honor we could not have achieved without the patients and families who inspire us to do our very best for them. Thanks to you, Boston Children's is a place where we can write the greatest children's stories ever told.”
