FirstHealth Moore Regional Hospital in Pinehurst has been named one of America’s 100 Great Community Hospitals, according to a study released recently 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,” said First Health CEO David J. Kilarski. “Our goal as an organization is to provide the safest, highest quality care to our patients and their loved ones. Each and every 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.”
To compile the list, the Becker’s Hospital Review editorial team analyzed information, recognition and rankings from a variety of industry sources, including iVantage Health Analytics, Thomson Reuters, HealthGrades and the American Nurses Credentialing Center. The hospitals on the list include fewer than 550 patient beds and have minimal teaching programs.
“Community hospitals are a critical component to the American healthcare continuum,” said a Becker’s statement announcing the award. “These hospitals are often the anchors of health and employment within their communities, providing patients with top-quality care close to home. The hospitals on this list have demonstrated commitments to the health of their local population through clinical excellence, community involvement and various other efforts.”
