You need to work through a lot of hoops just to get a moderately complicated rails application properly. The applications we are looking at deploying would be moderately active, 1,000 -2000 visits a day. Thanks for any comments in advance.

1000-2000 visits/day should be possible with just about any hosting
provider. The flexibility you need will be determined by what you mean
by a "moderately complicated" setup for Rails.
If you want to run your own VPS, go with Linode (and contact me for a
referral key :)). A number of customers have switched to them since
Slicehost was sold to Rackspace.
If you want a web host, I'd recommend WebFaction. I have a client site
with them and have been impressed by the balance of support and
flexibility they offer. See the Rails forum
(http://forum.webfaction.com/viewforum.php?id=33) for an idea of the way
things work there.
