Seven miles from the Village of Whispering Pines, North Carolina is Moore Regional Hospital, a member of the First Health network. Moore Regional, a 385-bed, acute care, not-for-profit hospital that serves as the referral
ter for a 15-county region in the Carolinas, is a modern, full service facility that is rated in the top 100 cardiac care centers nation-wide. A recently completed oncology wing has opened and is affiliated with Duke University Hospital. Offices and clinics of a variety of board-certified medical specialists are part of the broad spectrum of medical care within the Moore Regional area that includes an active medical staff of nearly 230 physicians, a professional staff of more than 2,700 and a dedicated group of approximately 725 volunteers. The sophisticated medical capabilities available at Moore Regional are usually found only in much larger metropolitan areas, and is a major reason why this location is attractive to many retirees.
