Healthcare

Patient centered care: Local commitment. Nationally renown.

In a well centered community, well being is a priority, and in Sanford-Lee well being means being well, feeling well and feeling good about the healthcare services and support available.

A look at the map shows that Sanford-Lee’s centered location puts a constellation of world-class facilities and services within an easy hour’s drive, including Duke University Hospital and University of North Carolina Hospitals; regional leaders such as Charlotte’s Rex Hospital and Carolinas Medical Center are close by as well.

However, Sanford-Lee residents also enjoy added well being knowing they don’t have to leave the county for notable excellence in medical care at Central Carolina Hospital (CCH).

Getting well sooner with fewer complications: Need surgery? It’s good to know that when Consumer Reports recently examined the problem of preventing surgical-site infections, central-line infections, and infections stemming from urinary catheters, only 37 hospitals in the entire nation got the highest rating, and CCH was one of them.

It’s also good to know that CCH has achieved above the state and national average for improvement rates in heart attack, heart failure, pneumonia and surgical care, based on core data on the CMS Hospital Compare website. CCH has also earned accreditation from the Joint Commission in multiple areas.

A 116-bed facility, CCH employs a medical staff of over 100 to provide services in 24 different specialty areas. From inpatient dialysis to outpatient surgery, from cardiac catheterization to robotic knee surgery, from MRIs to ultra-modern maternity care as part of the hospital’s women’s health network, CCH combines local care and commitment with evidence-based quality.

Leading research opportunity: In fact, at CCH’s recently opened Central Carolina Wound Care & Hyperbarics, part of the Healogics® network, patients are offered the opportunity to participate in clinical trials bringing to the bedside the latest in proven methods and technologies to promote wound healing for diabetics and other high-risk patients.

And for CCH patients, quality of care also means convenience of care, not just in location but in services like the innovative ER Express and in an Electronic Medical Record system that allows patients digital access to their charts and medical histories.

Sanford-Lee’s affordable, low-stress environment offers an wealth of recreational assets that make it easy to stay fit, plus easy access to an abundance of resources and services to maintain good health and even improve it.

That’s the true well being of a well centered community.
