Top Marks for Hospital – Again

If you have any strains or sprains after playing a round of golf or two, rest assured that you’ll receive the very best healthcare at FirstHealth Moore Regional Hospital. It, along with FirstHealth’s Richmond and Hoke campuses, has once again been named one of the state’s top hospitals and as the best in North Carolina in patient satisfaction by Business North Carolina magazine in the March 2021 issue.

FirstHealth of the Carolinas has 5,000 employees and treats patients from 15 surrounding counties.  Most recently, it approved interior plans for a $68 million, 120,000 square-foot Comprehensive Cancer Center in Pinehurst across from Reid Heart Center.  Construction should be complete in late 2022.

Moore Regional ranked No. 4 in the best hospitals ranking, tying with Mission Hospital, and No. 1 in the “patient picks” list, which ranks hospitals based on the percentage of patients who would recommend the hospital to others.

“We are incredibly honored to be recognized by Business North Carolina as one of the state’s best hospitals,” Mickey Foster, CEO of FirstHealth of the Carolinas, said.

“Topping the patient picks list is especially meaningful because it reflects our day-in, day-out commitment to delivering high-quality care. Every member of the FirstHealth family is committed to our core purpose, to care for people, and we are thankful to the community for its faith in us.”

The best hospital rankings are calculated using more than 25 metrics, including information provided by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services, patient satisfaction surveys, infection rates, readmission and death rates for common procedures. Other criteria include safety reports from The Leapfrog Group, distinction awards from Blue Cross Blue Shield and national ratings from U.S. News & World Report.

Moore Regional’s No. 1 “patient picks” ranking is based on patients who would recommend this hospital to others.  The data is gathered from the Hospital Consumer Assessment of Healthcare Providers and Systems survey that is completed by adult patients after discharge.

The Business North Carolina story also noted Moore Regional Hospital’s recognition by Blue Cross Blue Shield of North Carolina as “Proven Winners” for cardiac care, spine surgery, maternity care and bariatric surgery – noted as a comprehensive bariatric center.
