North Carolina Ranks Lower in New Health Care Scorecard

The Commonwealth Fund Commission’s Scorecard on Health System Performance ranks North Carolina 41st among the fifty states and the District of Columbia in delivery of health care.  The report released Thursday is a follow-up to a report issued in 2007, when North Carolina was ranked 30th.  The Scorecard rates states on access, quality, costs and health outcomes. The top five states are Vermont, Hawaii, Iowa, Minnesota and Maine; Mississippi ranked the worst.
