Johns Hopkins All Children’s Hospital Ranked #1 in Florida by U.S. News and World Report


St. Petersburg, Fla. – June 15, 2021 – Johns Hopkins All Children’s Hospital tied at the No. 1 spot for best children’s hospital in Florida on U.S. News & World Report’s Best Children’s Hospital’s list. The hospital ranked in eight specialty areas for the second year in a row. U.S. News & World Report also announced new regional rankings, where Johns Hopkins All Children’s tied for fifth place in the Southeast region. As in previous years, Johns Hopkins All Children’s is the only pediatric hospital on Florida’s West Coast to make the list. The 2021-2022 list ranked Johns Hopkins All Children’s among the top 50 in the following specialty areas:

  • Neurology and Neurosurgery #25 (tie)
  • Diabetes and Endocrinology #30 (tie)
  • Nephrology #39
  • Cancer #43
  • Neonatology #45
  • Orthopedics #45 (tie)
  • Urology #45
  • Pulmonology #46 (tie)

Pediatric hospitals participating in the annual rankings are measured by various factors such as patient outcomes, including mortality and infection rates, as well as available clinical resources and compliance with best practices. To calculate these rankings, U.S. News gathered relevant data from children’s hospitals in early 2020 and from pediatric physicians and other health care organizations in 2021. Due to the pandemic, data collection from children’s hospitals was not repeated in 2021.

“With the world focused on health, medicine and science, we are honored to be recognized for the broad range of expert care we offer to this community and its children and families,” says Thomas Kmetz, president of Johns Hopkins All Children’s Hospital. “It is humbling to think that an organization formed to fight a national polio crisis more than 90 years ago now stands amid a pandemic at the forefront of care for kids in Florida and beyond.”

More than 110 pediatric hospitals across the country participated the 2021-2022 survey, including Johns Hopkins Children’s Center in Baltimore, which ranked nationally in 10 specialty areas. Specialists at All Children’s continue to collaborate with colleagues in Baltimore on a variety of treatment and research initiatives.
