We are excited to share that Carteret Health Care’s commitment to quality is once again recognized in the US News & World Report.

It is noteworthy that Carteret Health Care is listed among a limited number of hospitals throughout the nation. A strong visual indication of Carteret’s outstanding accomplishments can be seen in the list of North Carolina hospitals recognized. Here you will see that Carteret Health Care received the most awards of any North Carolina Hospital. 

Specifically, our hospital is recognized in the US News & World Report for six achievements with heart failure management and stroke care receiving two awards each:
