Connecticut Children’s Medical Center Voted Best Children’s Hospital Second Year in a Row

Connecticut Children’s Medical Center has been named a Best Children’s Hospital and Best Children’s Hospital for Emergency Care by the Women’s Choice Award®, America’s trusted referral source for the best in healthcare.

The Women’s Choice Award provides women an opportunity to advocate on behalf of brands, services and hospitals they trust– and that includes Connecticut Children’s Medical Center. Moms across the country are recommending Connecticut Children’s for its pediatric expertise, dedicated and skilled staff and high level customer service both hospital wide and within the emergency department.

“Our Best Children’s Hospitals award helps raise awareness of the top quality care offered for children—not only the critically ill—with specialists, services and technologies for their unique needs,” said Delia Passi, founder and CEO of the Women’s Choice Award, and former publisher of Working Woman and Working Mother magazines. 

“We found in our studies that 75% percent of women associate children’s hospitals with care for seriously ill children and nearly 50% of women are unfamiliar with the offerings of a children’s hospital,” said Passi.  “Our goal at the Women’s Choice Award is to help moms—and parents—make educated, confident decisions about where to take their children for a wide range of healthcare services.”

The list of 67 award winners, including Connecticut Children’s, represents hospitals that have met the highest standards for childcare.

“As Connecticut’s only independent children’s hospital, we remain focused on providing care for all children, both across the state and throughout the region. This award speaks not only to our dedication and pediatric expertise, but also the overall care experience for our patients and families at a time when they need it most” said Jim Shmerling, President and CEO of Connecticut Children’s Medical Center.
