THE ORIGINAL RELOCATION GUIDE — FAYETTEVILLE | FORT BRAGG | SANDHILLS REGION VOLUME 7 — ISSUE 2 68 HEALTH & WELLNESS Fayetteville/Fort Bragg/ Sandhills – hear those geographic regions men- tioned, and if you know anything about the southern United States, the military jumps to mind. After all, Fort Bragg is the largest U.S. military installation in terms of population with over 50,000 active troops. But residents in this part of the state, whether involved with the military or not, are blessed with a quality lifestyle at almost every level – employment, education, and especially with medi- cal care. In the city of Fayetteville alone there are over 800 licensed physicians. Families have easy access to quality hospitals, clinics and other healthcare providers. There are 19 acute care hospitals and as well as one hospital totally dedi- cated to veterans' needs within a 60 mile radius. One of those health systems serving the Sandhills Region is FirstHealth, a premier medi- cal system in the Southeast. Comprised of five hospitals, primary and convenient care clinics, dental centers, home health, hospice & palliative care, health & fitness centers, and a robust philanthropic foundation, FirstHealth is a growing health care system and medical community with accolades galore. In 2017 alone FirstHealth Moore Regional was named one of nation's 100 Top Hospitals in an industry study conducted by Truven Health Analytics, a national health care informa- tion company. FirstHealth Hospice & Palliative Care was named a 2017 Hospice Honors Elite Recipient by Deyta Analytics, a division of HEALTHCAREfirst. Hospice Honors is a prestigious program that recognizes hospices providing the highest level of quality as measured from the caregiver's point of view. FirstHealth Moore Regional Hospital, including its Richmond and Hoke campuses, has once again been rec- ognized as one of the state's best hospitals and as the top hospital in patient satisfaction by Business North Caro- lina Magazine. Moore Regional ranked No. 5 in the "best hospital" ranking and No. 2 in the "patient picks" list. FirstHealth Moore Regional Hospital also earned the 2017 Women's Choice Award for America's Best Hospitals for Bariatric Surgery, Americas Best Hospitals for Obstetrics, Americas Best Hospitals for Heart Care, America's Best HEALTH & WELLNESS BY STUART JAMES Hospitals for Cancer Care, America's Best Stroke Centers, and America's Best Hospitals for Orthopedics.
