About UNC REX Healthcare
About the site:
The new Heart & Vascular Hospital opened in March 2017. This eight-story, 306,000 square foot building will bring together UNC REX Healthcare’s Heart and Vascular services in one location.
Every aspect of the facility was designed with the comfort of patients and their families in mind. The design is based on research, best practices and input from UNC REX Healthcare patients, physicians, clinicians and caregivers.
In addition, the hospital has the latest technology for patient care and procedures, as well as a state-of-the-art learning institute. Dedicated education space will make it easier for UNC REX Healthcare physicians to continue providing education to other physicians throughout the world, add educational programs for patients and the community, and increase in-house training and education for staff.
