Posted in :: 2020 Volume 4 :: Thursday, June 18th, 2020

U.S. News & World Report, published the 2020-2021 Best Children’s Hospitals rankings and FACT accreditation was again used as a ranking criterion for the cancer specialty. For the Best Children’s Hospitals list, one point was given for the Cancer specialty if a hospital is autologous only FACT-accredited and two points were given for allogeneic and autologous accreditation.

To accompany the rankings, U.S. News launched the U.S. News Hospital Heroes project, a series of profiles spotlighting the extraordinary efforts being mounted by health professionals in the trenches of fighting the historic coronavirus pandemic. U.S. News will share their experiences, hopes and fears from all corners of the hospital and broader public health landscape, as the country reopens and navigates the road ahead.
