For two decades, Truven’s study has evaluated hospitals on measures of overall organizational performance, including patient care, operational efficiency, financial stability and patient perception of care. The Truven Health 100 Top Hospitals is the most comprehensive and academically driven study of its kind.
Moore Regional Hospital, listed under the category of large community hospitals, is the only community hospital in North Carolina recognized by Truven. The 385-bed flagship hospital of FirstHealth of the Carolinas, Moore Regional received a similar designation in 1995, 2003 and 2004. Moore Regional was also recognized as a Top 50 Hospital for cardiovascular care by Truven just last month.
“I am extremely proud of the staff at Moore Regional Hospital,” said David J. Kilarski, CEO of FirstHealth of the Carolinas. “The board, management, employees and medical staff have worked very hard to adjust and change in a new era of health care delivery. They all should be commended for this honor. It is quite an achievement. Everyone associated with our hospital system has proven that transformation and innovation are part of their daily routine. And, most importantly, our patients and their families benefit from their dedication and perseverance.”
“This honor proves what we have known for quite a while,” said Kilarski, “that there is no need for patients in our region to look beyond Moore County for the highest quality health care in North Carolina.”
