CHoR was recognized in four pediatric specialties — urology (#28), pulmonology (#30), nephrology (#42) and cancer (#50), and "ranked higher in urology and nephrology than last year and landed at #10 out of all children’s hospitals in the Mid-Atlantic region, which includes Delaware, Maryland, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, Virginia, Washington, D.C. and West Virginia."
