According to the recently released report by U.S. News & World Report (USNWR), ImproveCareNow (ICN) care centers are among the best children’s hospitals, ranking at the top of the Honor Roll and in the Gastroenterology & GI Surgery specialty. USNWR rankings are based on a reputational survey sent to pediatric specialists and a data survey that is sent to a handpicked set of hospitals.

“We want to congratulate all the ICN centers that were recently included as part of U.S. News & World Report’s annual Best Children’s Hospitals list. We are excited to share that all top ten Honor Roll and 42 of the top 50 children’s hospitals ranked in Gastroenterology & GI Surgery are currently part of the ICN Learning Health Network. ICN is committed to improving quality and outcomes in pediatric IBD care and this important work is acknowledged by U.S. News & World Report.”
