The University of Michigan’s C.S. Mott Children’s Hospital is among the best children’s hospitals in the country in pediatric specialties and is the only hospital in Michigan ranked in all 10 specialties evaluated, according to the U.S. News & World Report’s 2013-14 Best Children’s Hospitals rankings. C.S. Mott is nationally ranked in all 10 of the evaluated categories including 6th in the country in cardiology and heart surgery, 20th in urology, 20th in nephrology, 21st in diabetes and endocrinology and among the country’s best in cancer, gastroenterology, neurology and neurosurgery, neonatology, pulmonology and orthopedics. C.S. Mott has been named among the nation’s best in these rankings since they were introduced in 2007.

The new rankings recognize the top 50 children’s hospitals in each of those 10 pediatric specialties. “We are extremely proud that we continue to get high rankings from U.S. News & World Report for the tremendous care we provide to our patients and families at C.S. Mott Children’s Hospital,” says Dr. Ora H. Pescovitz, executive vice president for Medical Affairs at the University of Michigan and CEO of the U-M Health System. “We strive for an ideal patient care experience, so it’s wonder-
ful to receive recognition for our efforts and to be ranked year after year among the nation’s best in all the specialties.” U.S. News introduced the Best Children’s Hospitals rankings in 2007 to help families of sick children find the best medical care available. The rankings offer quality-related information at the individual hospital level. “We have worked very hard at improving quality of care, safety and patient satisfaction at C.S. Mott Children’s Hospital, so it is very meaningful to be honored once again as a comprehensive children’s hospital in all of the specialty pediatric disciplines,” says Dr. Valerie Castle, Ravitz professor and chair of the Department of Pediatrics and Communicable
Diseases and a pediatric oncologist. Dr. Chris Dickinson, interim executive director of C.S. Mott Children’s Hospital, said he’s glad that U.S. News and World Report has recognized the tremendous care provided for the children at C.S. Mott Children’s Hospital. “This ranking, along with the recent Parents Magazine ranking that placed C.S. Mott Children’s Hospital eighth in the nation, demonstrate that we are on the right track, providing top-notch care for often the sickest children with the most complicated diseases from Michigan and around the world,” says Dickinson, who also is a professor of pediatric gastroenterology.

Leadership program entering 30th year
A program aimed at better connecting people with their community is marking a milestone year and currently accepting applications. Leadership A2Y, the Ann Arbor/Ypsilanti Regional Chamber’s leadership program will celebrate its 30th anniversary this fall. The leadership programs from both the former Ann Arbor and Ypsilanti Chambers of Commerce combined in 2010 to create Leadership A2Y — a regional program whose mission is to provide a foundation for the development of a sustainable and vital region based upon an informed and committed business community. The program has established itself as one of the most effective methods for learning about the Ann Arbor/Ypsilanti area and meeting its core leaders. The nine-month curriculum provides participants with an appreciation for the complex issues facing our community. Topics include economic development, community services, education, local government, health care, justice and quality of life. Leadership also provides individuals with an opportunity to explore and enhance their own leadership skills and develop a broad network of relationships that carry on long after the program ends. Combining improved leadership skills with new associations allows individuals to better represent their businesses, responsibly serve a deserving non-profit organization and be an energetic steward of the community.
