Texas Children's Hospital jumps up in list of 'America's Best'

HOUSTON Texas Children's Hospital, the nation's largest pediatric hospital, rose to the No. 4 spot in the ranking of the top 10 pediatric hospitals in the nation, according to the U.S.News & World Report "America's Best Hospitals" list released today.
