  • 1 children's hospital in New York and ranked as one of the best hospitals in the nation,” said Michael Dowling, president and CEO of Northwell Health, which operates Cohen Children's.

Cohen Children’s Medical Center is the top-rated children’s hospital in New York State and has earned top national rankings for exceptional care in nine pediatric specialties, according to US News & World Report’s 2021-2022 Best Children’s Hospitals.

As the largest provider of pediatric health services in the state, Cohen Children’s has been ranked among the nation’s top children’s hospitals by US News for 15 consecutive years.

US News expanded its rankings this year to include state and regional children’s hospital ratings. Cohen Children’s received high marks there as well. In addition to earning the top spot in New York, it was ranked fifth in the mid-Atlantic region, which includes Delaware, the District of Columbia, Maryland, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, Virginia and West Virginia.

Cohen Children’s landed in the top 30 nationally in six disciplines: pediatric urology (ranking 18th), neurology/neurosurgery (21st), pulmonology/lung surgery (tied for 24th), orthopedics (26th), diabetes/endocrinology (27th) and cancer (tied for 30th). The children’s hospital also serves as New York’s largest Level 1 pediatric trauma center and a primary destination for emergency care.

“We are proud to be recognized as the No. 1 children’s hospital in New York and ranked as one of the best hospitals in the nation,” said Michael Dowling, president and CEO of Northwell Health, which operates Cohen Children’s. “This exceptional achievement reflects the unwavering dedication of the staff at Cohen Children’s Medical Center in providing world class care across a broad spectrum of clinical areas to our youngest and most precious patients.”

Coordinated, complex care is a hallmark of Cohen Children’s, which was put to the test during the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic. The children’s hospital was a leader in treating children with COVID-19 and helped identify and treat Kawasaki-like disease, the multisystem inflammatory syndrome of childhood (MIS-C), a late-stage response to COVID-19.

“For the past 15 years, our hospital has been ranked among our country’s top children’s  hospitals and all of us are very proud of this ongoing achievement,” said Charles Schleien, MD, MBA, senior vice president and chair of pediatric services at Northwell Health, and the Philip Lanzkowsky Chair and Professor of Pediatrics at the Zucker School of Medicine at Hofstra/Northwell.

He added, “The excellence of every member of our staff – from the surgeons and doctors, nurses and therapists, environmental and food service workers – was put to the test this year as they diligently worked, each in their own way, to care for our patients during the COVID-19 pandemic. In spite of their own personal or family issues, the Cohen Children’s staff cared for these very vulnerable patients in ways that can only be described as heroic. I am so proud of their achievements.”
