PHOENIX (CBS5) -

Phoenix Children's Hospital was the only Arizona hospital recognized as one of the top children's hospitals in the nation by the latest U.S. News and World Report for 2013-2014.

The report recognizes the top 50 U.S. hospitals in 10 different areas of medical proficiency.

Phoenix Children's Hospital was recognized for its subspecialties in five different areas: cardiology and heart surgery, neurology and neurosurgery, neonatology, nephrology and urology.

"Phoenix Children's Hospital deserves high praise," said Health Rankings Editor Avery Comarow. "Ranking shows the dedication and expertise that Phoenix Children's brings to the care of children who need those qualities the most."

Three-quarters of each hospital's score was determined through an analysis of patient outcomes and data on the structural resources each hospital has for pediatric care.

The hospital's reputation among doctors was the final factor in the reports rankings.
