PINEHURST – FirstHealth Moore Regional Hospital has been named one of America’s 100 Great Community Hospitals, according to a study released in June by Becker’s Hospital Review.
“We are very pleased to be recognized by Becker’s for providing quality care to our patients and serving our community in many ways,” says David J. Kilarski, chief executive officer for FirstHealth of the Carolinas. “Our goal as an organization is to provide exceptional and safe quality care to our patients and their loved ones. Each and every physician, employee and volunteer at FirstHealth works very hard to produce the highest levels of patient satisfaction and top-quality care. It’s gratifying that Becker’s has confirmed the success of our efforts.”
Hospitals on the Becker’s list are spread across the country, some not far from major metro areas and some in rural communities. Regardless of location or whether they are affiliated with a major system, all are vital parts of their respective communities.
Becker’s has published a version of this list annually since 2011. This is the fifth year the list has included 100 hospitals, and this is the second year Moore Regional has been included on the list. For the purposes of this list, Becker’s defines a ‘community hospital’ as one with fewer than 550 beds that have minimal teaching programs.
The Becker’s editorial team selected hospitals for inclusion based on rankings and awards from organizations including iVantage Health Analytics, Truven Health Analytics, Healthgrades, CareChex, the American Nurses Credentialing Center and the Leapfrog Group. Included organizations have earned recognition from one or more of these organizations.
The monthly Becker’s Hospital Review offers up-to-date business and legal news and analysis relating to hospitals and health systems. Content is geared toward high-level hospital leaders and includes valuable content, including hospital and health system news, best practices and legal guidance specifically for these decision-makers. Each issue of Becker’s Hospital Review reaches more than 18,000 people, primarily acute-care hospital CEOs, CFOs and CIOs.
