How does your endocrinologist stack up?
U.S. News News & World Report recently ranked children’s hospitals in a number of specialties including 30 Pediatric Hospitals for Diabetes & Endocrinology.
The specific criteria for the rankings wasn’t spelled out (as least that I readily saw). But it’s always interesting to if your own hospital is listed.
The hospital that we go to for care was among the top 30, but I won’t lie…I looked to see if there was a higher ranked hospital that is a shorter drive for us.
Our drive is about 200 miles each way to the endocrinologist; a trip that takes us about four hours including numerous pit stops for potty breaks, food, and playtime. It’s taxing. Not to mention it costs money for gas and sometimes a hotel and my daughter misses one to two days of school each time.
Did your child’s hospital make the grade? Do you think these rankings really mean anything?
