Additionally, Children's ranked among the nation's top 10 in pulmonology (5), neurology & neurosurgery (8) and neonatology (9). These are considered to "deliver exceptionally high-quality care across multiple specialties", according to the organization.

OSF Children's Hospital of Illinois Pediatric Urology, led by Dr. Churphena Reid and Dr. Benjamin Rhee, tied for 31st nationally, marking the third year in a row it has been ranked.
