PINEHURST – FirstHealth Moore Regional Hospital has been named one of America's 100 Great Community Hospitals, according to a study released in July by Becker's Hospital Review.
“We are extremely honored to once again be recognized by Becker's as a Top 100 Great Community Hospital,” says David J. Kilarski, chief executive officer for FirstHealth of the Carolinas. “This kind of recognition is a testament to the quality of the staff, nurses, physicians and volunteers that work in our organization, and demonstrates our ability to deliver safe, high-quality care for the communities we serve.”
As Moore Regional campuses, Moore Regional Hospital - Richmond and Moore Regional Hospital – Hoke are also included in the designation.
The hospitals included on the list have been recognized nationally for excellence in clinical care, patient outcomes, and staff and physician satisfaction. These institutions are industry leaders that have achieved advanced accreditation and certification in several specialties. The list also includes industry innovators that have sparked trends in healthcare technology, hospital management and patient satisfaction.
Becker's has published a version of this list annually since 2011. This is the fourth 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 U.S. News & World Report’s 2017-2018 rankings, CMS star ratings, Truven Health Analytics, CareChex and the Leapfrog Group. Included organizations have earned recognition from one or more of these organizations.
Becker's Hospital Review is a monthly publication offering up-to-date business and legal news and analysis relating to hospitals and health systems. Content is geared toward high-level hospital leaders, and we work to provide valuable content, including hospital and health system news, best practices and legal guidance specifically for these decision-makers.
