Last year, CaroMont was named among the Top 100 hospitals by IBM Watson Health for the fifth time. U.S. News & World Report ranks CaroMont as high-performing in treating heart failure and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. In BNC’s study, CaroMont earned high marks for low rates of common hospital-acquired infections.
Challenge: With population growth picking up in Gaston County, it could be a target market for Charlotte-based Atrium Health, which plans to invest $1 billion over seven years in expansions and improvements.

METHODOLOGY: Business North Carolina’s 2019 Best Hospitals list is calculated by the hospitals’ performance in 25 metrics, including information provided by the U.S. Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services. We examine patient-satisfaction surveys, rates of commonly acquired hospital infections, and readmission and death rates for common procedures. Also considered are safety report cards from The Leapfrog Group, a Washington, D.C.-based nonprofit, and ratings from insurer Blue Cross and Blue Shield and U.S. News & World Report. We rank the state’s adult, acute-care medical centers with at least 50 beds, excluding specialty and psychiatric hospitals.
