Both St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital and Le Bonheur Children’s Hospital have yet again made the U.S. News and World Report‘s list for Best Children’s Hospitals 2016-17.

 

This honor twice-over is just another exemplification of the values and spirit that Memphis represents.

In the tourism industry, we are apt to embrace the history that has shaped our city, from Civil Rights to music. But we also acknowledge and encourage the present: and that means the booming business and good works happening in Memphis everyday. Our network of hospitals are paramount examples of this.

These hospitals stand as pillars within the expansive medical community in Memphis, offering unparalleled medical service to children from across the world, right in the heart of our city.  They were ranked as such:

  • St. Jude – Nationally Ranked Hospital in 1 Children’s Specialty and overall as  #4 in Children’s Cancer Hospitals
  • Le Bonheur: Nationally Ranked Hospital in 7 Children’s Specialties (for the sixth year in a row

As a proud Memphian, an honor such as this given to not one but two of our major hospitals in the city is so humbling.

Let’s all take a step back today and thank all of the medical facilities in Memphis for all that they do for our community and people every day!
