U.S. News & World Report

Johns Hopkins All Children’s Hospital ranks as the top pediatric hospital on Florida’s west coast, ranking among the nation’s best in five specialties.

#31 Neonatology
#32 Orthopedics
#37 Neurology and Neurosurgery
#44 Cardiology and Heart Surgery
#50 Nephrology

Both Neonatology and Nephrology achieved the highest rankings in Florida in their category. Each year, U.S. News & World Report conducts a survey of pediatric specialists and collects clinical data related to patient outcomes, such as mortality and infection rates, clinical resources and compliance with best practices. The information gathered helps families with children who have life-threatening illnesses find the best medical care available. The report serves as the only comprehensive source of quality-related information on U.S. pediatric hospitals.

We are truly grateful to all physicians and clinical teams for their extraordinary commitment to patients and families. Visit HopkinsAllChildrens.org to learn more about the specialties that ranked.

Multidisciplinary Clinic Spotlight
Chronic Pain Clinic

The pain management team provides chronic pain management services to infants, children and adolescents. Our chronic pain service team works with the health care teams, patients and families to provide an individualized pain management plan. We manage chronic pain with non-narcotic pain medication and regional pain blocks. Regional pain blocks are administering local anesthetic around the nerve to numb the pain in that area of the body. Our team tries to avoid narcotics given the high chance of opioid misuse and addiction. Our goal is to treat the patient's pain and help them continue to participate in activities of daily living, such as watching TV, eating, texting and interacting with family and friends.

Conditions we treat:

• Amplified pain syndrome
• Lower back pain
• Chronic pain related to sickle cell disease
• Functional abdominal pain and headaches

The Chronic Pain Clinic is offered at our outpatient care center:
St. Petersburg, Main Campus

For information or to refer a patient, visit HopkinsAllChildrens.org or call (727) 767-PAIN (7246).
