Children's Hospital gets Level 1 status
The American College of Surgeons has recognized Arkansas Children's Hospital as a Level 1 children's surgical center -- one of 17 such hospitals in the United States.
The recognition is valid for three years and notes surgical centers with quality-improvement programs that have bettered outcomes and cut costs.
The hospital applied for the status and was assessed on measures such as staffing, training, infrastructure, processes and clinical data.
