How The 10 Best Children’s Hospitals Celebrated

All I can say: Hospitals really know how to party. Once Parents announced the 10 Best Children’s Hospitals in the country on Monday, these facilities started celebrating and spreading the word about their honor. Players from the Philadelphia Flyers tweeted congrats to The Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP) about its number-one ranking. CHOP also touted its first-place finish on billboards near Philly. (If you’ve ever survived Philly traffic, you know many people will see these!)

Over in Aurora, Colorado, our number-5 hospital hosted  a “Watch Party” of our segment on The Today Show. Staff at Children’s Hospital Colorado cheered wildly when their hospital was mentioned on the show. And, in the ultimate good sportsmanship, Children’s tweeted congrats to its fellow hospitals on the list.

At the University of Michigan’s C.S. Mott Children’s Hospital, a mascot handed out beach balls with the Parents logo to patients. The hospital also changed its Facebook timeline picture to this adorable image.


The most rockin’ bash took place in Milwaukee, where staff at Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin, made this rap video about their number-4 status (and number-1 honor in preemie care). Imagine how fun it is for kids to have this crew taking care of them!

If you haven’t had a chance yet, tweet or post your congrats to one of overall winners or specialty picks!  If you’re tweeting, use the hash tag #BestHospitals so we can all see the good wishes. Now let’s keep this party going!
