Despite being home to several nationally recognized hospitals, the Triangle didn’t fare well in a new study of health care quality.
The Raleigh-Durham-Chapel Hill area was ranked 42nd for overall hospital care among the nation’s 50 largest areas by population, according to CareChex, a division of Comparion Medical Analytics, a health care information services company.
The company based its ranking on an analysis of hospitals’ process, outcomes and patient satisfaction but did not name specific hospitals and health-care providers.
Charlotte-Gastonia-Rock Hill was ranked No. 10.
