PINEHURST – A study by Cleverley + Associates, a leading health care financial consulting firm, has ranked FirstHealth Moore Regional Hospital among the top 100 hospitals in the United States for the third consecutive year.
The ranking in Cleverley's State of the Hospital Industry – 2014 Edition is based on a proprietary index known as the Community Value Index. The index measures the value that a hospital provides to its community by looking at financial strength and reinvestment, cost of care, pricing and quality.
FirstHealth was one of three hospitals in North Carolina that made the Cleverley Top 100.
“To be recognized once again as a top hospital in the country is an outstanding accomplishment as well as an honor,” says David J. Kilarski, chief executive officer of FirstHealth of the Carolinas. “This is great news for both our hospital and the communities we serve. We continue to manage our financial resources effectively, ensuring that we can provide the best high-quality care.”
“The Top 100 rating demonstrates that Moore Regional is both efficient and cost effective in its delivery of health care to the communities we serve,” says Lynn DeJaco, chief financial officer of FirstHealth of the Carolinas.
