A message from Dr. Mark Souweidane and Dr. Jeffrey Greenfield.
On behalf of our combined pediatric neurosurgery service, it is with great pride that we pass along our 2022-23 US News & World Report’s ranking for “Best Children’s Hospitals.” New York-Presbyterian Hospital has been ranked as a top children’s hospital for 16 years in a row, and we could not be more proud to be recognized as #1 in New York. NewYork-Presbyterian provides pediatric care in every area of medicine at two major sites: NewYork-Presbyterian Morgan Stanley Children’s Hospital and NewYork-Presbyterian Komansky Children’s Hospital. It is also the nation’s only hospital affiliated with two world-class medical schools, Columbia University Vagelos College of Physicians and Surgeons and Weill Cornell Medicine.
Importantly, in the category of Neurology & Neurosurgery, our service is ranked as one of the top programs in the United States! This year we achieved a well-earned jump, rising 5 spots from last year’s ranking, now putting us in the top 15 children’s neurological services in the nation. This is a testament to the work of all members of our pediatric neurosurgical team, all of whom work so hard. It shows how each of them, individually and as a team, matters in creating a highly sought-after service for children regionally and throughout the country.
Given the disproportionate impact the COVID pandemic has had on our community here in New York, this national recognition speaks even more loudly about our team’s dedication, pride, and work ethic.
With pride and gratitude to our colleagues,
Dr. Mark Souweidane and Dr. Jeffrey Greenfield
