Two Buffalo hospitals made a national ranking for specialty care in the latest list of best hospitals published by U.S. News & World Report magazine.
Women & Children’s Hospital, part of Kaleida Health, ranked 49th among children’s hospitals for pediatric neurology and neurosurgery. Roswell Park Cancer Institute ranked 41st out of 902 hospitals rated for cancer care.
The magazine uses a handful of measures, such as death rates, as well as a survey of physicians about hospital reputation to devise the rankings. However, the magazine cautions that the highest-ranked hospitals in a specialty may not be the best choice and advises patients to use the ranking only as a starting point to make health care choices.
