— A health care information technology company has named Rex Healthcare to its annual list of the nation’s 100 Top Hospitals.

Rex is the only North Carolina hospital on Thomson Healthcare's list, which recognizes hospitals that have achieved excellence in clinical outcomes, patient safety, financial performance and efficiency. This list was published Monday in Modern Healthcare magazine.

More than 3,000 hospitals with at least 25 beds were rated against each other in eight categories – risk-adjusted mortality, risk-adjusted complications, patient safety composite, average core measures scores, severity-adjusted average length of stay, expense per adjusted discharge, profit from operations and cash-to-debt ratio – to compile the list.

In making the list, Rex ranked in the top 10 percent among hospitals of equal size in the various categories.

“Selection to this prestigious list confirms what we already knew: We work with great people who provide excellent care to Triangle residents," Rex President David Strong said in a statement.
