Hospitals Phoenix - Phoenix Childrens Hospital
The Phoenix Children’s Hospital has provided health-care and wellness services for children and their families for nearly three decades. For its efforts, U.S. News and World Report ranked it as 1 of the 50 best hospitals in the nation for four pediatric specialties in 2012. Apart from the emergency services, surgeries, and general checkups, the hospital strives to educate individuals and families in Phoenix and throughout the entire state of Arizona through The Emily Center’s family-health library. Built inside the Phoenix Children’s Hospital, The Emily Center was established in 1990 by Emily Anderson’s parents. Emily battled a rare form of leukemia for four years and passed away shortly before her seventh birthday. Frustrated by a lack of easy-to-understand information on pediatric-health issues for both children and adults, the Anderson’s founded the center to provide accurate health information free of charge to both hospital patients and the public.
