Atrium Health’s
Carolinas HealthCare System NorthEast


Beds: 457 | 2018 rank: 11 |
President: Phyllis Wingate

Carolinas HealthCare System, now Atrium Health, acquired the Cabarrus County hospital in 2007. The first phase of a $115.2 million modernization project, a new 165,000-square-foot heart and vascular tower, will open later this year. The tower will include a catheterization lab, cardiovascular intensive care unit, 60 replacement beds and new cardiac operating rooms.
Challenge: Rival Novant Health is expanding aggressively in the Charlotte region but has limited operations in Cabarrus County, one of the state’s fastest-growing areas.

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.
