As one of the fastest growing regions in the United States, the “Triangle” is proud to be home to some of the world’s top medical facilities.
Among these top facilities are:
Duke University Health System

Rex UNC Healthcare has received so much recognition, it would require the entire page to list them! Rex specializes in women’s health issues earning the Women’s Health Excellence Award which ranked it among the top 10% in the nation for Women’s Health.
In 2006, Rex Healthcare was chosen as a Consumer Choice Award winner. Each year, National Research Corporation honors those hospitals whose consumers select as them as having the best quality of care and image based on a national study of over 200,000 households. In 2010, Rex Hospital is one of only two hospitals in N.C. to receive the Distinguished Hospital Award

WakeMed Hospitals are known for their world class care and treatment of cardiac conditions. Wake County’s first open heart surgery was performed at WakeMed nearly 40 years ago. WakeMed’s heart program is the busiest in North Carolina, and continues treat more heart patients than any other hospital in the state.
