ApolloMD Partner CaroMont Regional Medical Center Named Top Community Hospital
June 9, 2014 – ApolloMD is excited to congratulate new partner hospital CaroMont Regional Medical Center in Gastonia, North Carolina for its recognition by Becker’s Hospital Review as one of the nation’s Top 100 Community Hospitals. A 435-bed center, the facility is the flagship location of CaroMont Health System and has been recognized for both its high quality care and excellent practice setting.
The hospitals were selected based on rankings and awards from groups including iVantage Health Analytics, Truven Health Analytics, CareChex, and the American Hospital Association. Each hospital recognized has fewer than 550 beds and is dedicated to providing top quality care and optimizing patient experiences within the community.
ApolloMD will begin providing emergency physician services at CaroMont on July 1, 2014. The emergency department consists of approximately 50 treatment rooms, including an Express Care area, 4 critical care rooms, and a separate psychiatric suite. The hospital takes an innovative approach to patient care, with robust technology support including bedside ED ultrasonography, and CaroMont’s designation as a national Nurse Magnet Hospital attracts the best and brightest nurses.
“We are excited for the opportunity to partner with CaroMont. We look forward to providing exceptional care to Gaston County and are honored to have the chance to serve this wonderful community,” said Yogin Patel, MD. A practicing emergency physician, Dr. Patel is ApolloMD’s Regional President overseeing clinical operations in the Carolinas.
