GU Pediatric Urology Care Recognized Among Top 10 in U.S. News & World Report Rankings

Congratulations to our pediatric urologists honored among the professionals honored in U.S. News & World Report’s 2019-2020 Best Children’s Hospitals rankings. This annual recognition signifies excellence among the country’s pediatric healthcare landscape.

Our wholly-owned subsidiary, Georgia Pediatric Urology, collaborates with and provides pediatric urological services at Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta, which occupies a top-10 spot in the magazine’s Best Hospitals for Pediatric Urology category.

“The U.S. News & World Report designation is important because it tells the public we are a pediatric urology center dedicated to quality outcomes,” says Dr. Hal Scherz, a pediatric urologist and managing partner of Georgia Urology. “It gives the public a sense of reassurance that the care their children will receive from Georgia Urology is going to be as good as it can be anywhere in the country.”

Of our 45 specialty-trained physicians, the seven making up Georgia Pediatric Urology are fellowship-trained pediatric urologists with expertise in the diagnosis and treatment of urological problems affecting boys and girls, from newborns to late teens. These conditions include congenital abnormalities, genitalia, pediatric urologic cancers, kidney and bladder issues, and more. Our HAWK (Help Awaiting Wet Kids) Center provides specialized care for children with wetting issues and other forms of abnormal urination.

Georgia Pediatric Urology differs in that we are a private practice, pediatric urology group. This allows us to serve through various avenues. In addition to our involvement in the children’s hospital world, we train Emory University residents and offer one of the longest-running pediatric urology fellowships in the country.

“We’ve worked very hard to put together the pieces necessary to establish a top-tier pediatric urology group,” Dr. Scherz explains. “The U.S. News & World Report designation validates all of the hard work and dedication everyone in our group has contributed. And we’re not done yet. We’re always growing, improving, expanding, and making the programs better for children who have pediatric urological problems.”
