AZ Business Magazine September/October 2013
30 years of admiration
September is always one of my favorite issues of Az Business magazine because this is the issue in which we honor those firms what make writing and reporting about the state’s business community so special: Arizona’s Most Admired Companies.
Among the 40 companies that are honored in this issue as being among the state’s best of the best is one company that impacts the lives of our most precious residents on a daily basis: Phoenix Children’s Hospital.
PCH opened within Good Samaritan Hospital 30 years ago this month. Following its $588 million expansion in 2008, PCH is one of the 10 largest children’s hospitals in the country.
But not only is it one of the biggest, it’s one of the best. U.S. New & World Report ranked PCH as one of the top children’s hospitals in the country in five categories: cardiology and heart surgery, neonatology, nephrology, neurology and neurosurgery, and urology.
“The ranking shows the dedication and expertise that Phoenix Children’s brings to the care of children who need those qualities the most,” said Avery Comarow, editor of U.S. News’ Health Rankings. “We think it is important to identify and call attention to pediatric centers like this one.”
So does the editorial team at Az Business. Congratulations, Phoenix Children’s Hospital, on being one of the Most Admired Companies in Arizona, on your 30th anniversary, and for protecting our most treasured assets.
