Nationwide Children's Hospital came in at number seven in this year's report.

The 2018-19 Honor Roll designation marks the fifth consecutive year NCH has received this recognition.

The annual rankings recognize the top 50 pediatric facilities across the U.S. in 10 pediatric specialties. Hospitals received points for being ranked in a specialty, and higher-ranking hospitals receive more points.
