PENN STATE CHILDREN’S HOSPITAL For the eighth consecutive year, Penn State Children’s Hospital has been ranked among the Best Children’s Hospitals in multiple specialties by U.S. News & World Report. The Children’s Hospital ranked in cancer, cardiology and heart surgery, and nephrology in the 2018-2019 rankings. “This well-deserved, continued recognition is an important reminder to families, referring physicians and the region as a whole that the highest level of pediatric specialty care is available right here in central Pennsylvania,” said Dr. Leslie Walker-Harding, chair of pediatrics at Penn State Children’s Hospital, which is Magnet accredited. Nurses … not just average nurses, but smart, compassionate, dedicated, collaborative, inspired Penn State Health nurses can take much credit for the high regard Penn State Health enjoys in the community and around the world. They, and the children they care for, are true heroes. https://childrens.pennstatehealth.org/
