Pinehurst Medical Center has been named the best hospital in the United States for the number of surgical facilities it has, according to the 2017 medical device and equipment survey conducted by Caremark, a medical device research and advisory firm.
The hospital is ranked fifth in the country, with an annual revenue of $1.35 billion.
The survey also found that Pinehurst was ranked among the top 10 hospitals in the nation for surgical technology, which is the type of medical equipment used in most surgeries.
The medical device industry has been on a meteoric rise since the 1960s, with many of the new medical technologies now being used in surgical procedures.
Caremark has been providing medical device experts with data for the survey for nearly 20 years, and the results are used to compile a ranking of medical facilities and how they rank.
The 2016 survey was based on a survey of more than 2,000 medical device professionals from across the United State and Canada.
Caremarks CEO and co-founder Matt Wysocki said in a statement, “The medical device sector is in an all-time high of growth.
This is particularly true for the surgical market, where the growth is most pronounced.”
Pinehurst is located in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains in North Carolina, which offers a relatively low cost of living compared to the rest of the U.S. The average annual salary for a surgeon is $98,865.
For a specialist, the average salary is $102,099.
Caremarked says Pinehurst has the highest surgical tech salaries in the U to surgical scrub hats.
A surgical scrub hat is a surgical device that is designed to keep an infected patient clean for hours on end.
The hats are typically made of a high quality synthetic material and are manufactured in the Netherlands.
Pinehurst’s surgical scrub, which was awarded the top surgical tech award, is one of three items the medical device expert said they use in their surgical procedures, according the Caremark report.
Other items included: a pair of surgical scrub caps that are made to fit under the scalpel to prevent skin irritation and infection, and a surgical scrub mask that is made to cover the mouth and throat.
Care Marks survey found that a third of surgical surgeons and surgeons assistants use surgical scrub masks.
“The number of surgeries performed at Pinehurst consistently outperforms the average U.
