Surgery. Saving Lifetimes. — Children's 2010 Annual Report
25,853 surgeries. 59 surgeons. 50 anesthesiologists. 171 surgery nurses. 31 surgical technicians. These numbers only begin to tell the story of the thousands of children who had operations at our not-for-profit hospital in 2010. Many of the surgeries were life saving. All of them were life changing. The renowned surgeons and caring staff at Children’s are uniquely skilled and prepared with the most up-to-date techniques and tools to treat the issues facing children and their families — from cancer to liver transplants to repairing the tiny hearts of premature newborns. Children’s, ranked among the best pediatric hospitals in the country, is affiliated with UT Southwestern Medical Center, one of the nation’s best academic medical centers and one of the most prolific research institutions in the world. That means the experience among our surgeons is vast, and leads to success in the most complex cases. In this report, you’ll meet several patients who had surgery in 2010. Each has experienced a transformation.
Top 10 in the nation. The one for children here — Children's 2009 Annual Report
What makes a Top 10 hospital
On June 18, 2009, Children's Medical Center was told by the editors at U.S.News and World Report that the hospital had been named to the magazine's Best Children's Hospitals 2009 Honor Roll, distinguishing Children's as one of America's Top 10 pediatric centers.
Children's earned the spot not because of its brilliance in any one specialty or discipline, though they certainly exist. Instead, it was the hospital's consistent level of excellence across 10 different specialties that garnered the elite ranking.
