Best and Worst Cities for Pediatric Care

Vitals knows that care across our great country isn’t always equal. We wanted to find out, though, how that disparity plays out when it comes to one of our most precious populations – our children.

In our first ever America’s Top Cities for Access to Pediatric Care, Vitals analyzed the number of pediatricians available in each city on a per-capita basis for their under-18 population. Patient-reported metrics such as pediatrician ratings, ease in getting an appointment and wait times were also calculated into the final rankings.  Look at the graphic below to see which cities ranked on top.

You can also watch our Chief Marketing Officer Orlena Yeung discuss our survey’s findings with Dr. Manny Alvarez on FOX’s Health Talk.
