FirstHealth named top place to work in health care

FirstHealth Moore Regional Hospital has been recognized as one of the best hospitals in North Carolina by U.S. News & World Report. 

In the publication’s annual Best Hospital’s recognition, Moore Regional is ranked 9th statewide and received “high performing” marks in several procedures and conditions. 

For more than 30 years, the rankings have helped guide patients to hospitals that deliver outstanding care across 25 specialties, procedures and conditions. 

The Best Hospitals methodologies are based largely or entirely on objective measures such as risk-adjusted survival and readmission rates, volume, patient experience, patient safety and quality of nursing, among other care-related indicators.

“We are thrilled to receive this recognition once again from U.S. News,” FirstHealth CEO Mickey Foster said. “This is a testament to the expertise and commitment of our physicians, nurses and staff who work each day to provide exceptional care to our patients. It’s especially meaningful to be highly ranked based on measures such as survival and readmission rates, patient experience, patient safety and quality of nursing.”

Moore Regional Hospital received high performing ratings for abdominal aortic aneurysm repair, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), colon cancer surgery, heart bypass surgery, heart failure, hip replacement, knee replacement and lung cancer surgery. 

As departments of the hospital, both Moore Regional’s Richmond and Hoke campuses are also included in the ranking. 

“Throughout the FirstHealth system and at all of our locations, we are committed to our core purpose – To Care for People,” Foster said. “We strive for high-quality care each day and remain committed to caring for the whole person as we work with them to improve their quality of life.”
