Rex Wakefield Hospital

Rex Healthcare of Wakefield has been serving our community for nearly a decade with urgent and family care. And, we've served northern Wake County for two years with outpatient diagnostics, surgery and cancer care.

Now we want to grow with you. Rex has asked state officials to allow us to build a 40-bed hospital at our campus on Capital Boulevard and New Falls of Neuse. Hospital services will include:

  • 24/7 Emergency Department
  • Inpatient and observation beds
  • Intensive Care Unit
  • Birth Center
  • Inpatient and Outpatient Surgery
  • Cancer Center
  • Full Laboratory and Pharmacy
  • Radiology (including CT, Mobile MRI)
  • Heart & Vascular Diagnostics

Why build a hospital in Wakefield?

Rex Healthcare has a strong presence in Wakefield already, but we see a continuing need to expand health care services for our patients in northern Wake County, as well as patients from Franklin County.

Northern Wake County is one of the fastest growing areas of the Triangle. The area around Wakefield has a population of 170,000 - and it continues to grow.

In addition, many Franklin County residents, particularly those that live in southern Franklin County, come to Wake County for their health care. A Wakefield hospital would improve access for these patients, especially in key specialties such as obstetrics and gynecology

Rex already has a wide array of health care services in the area, including outpatient surgery, oncology, urgent care and imaging, as well as a medical office building, which is now fully leased to physicians caring for patients in the region.

Rex has already established a deep relationship with many communities near our Wakefield Campus. We actively support numerous organizations including the Wake Forest, Raleigh and Rolesville Chambers of Commerce, Rolesville Christmas Parade, Wake Forest Good Neighbor Day, Wake Forest Relay for Life Survivors Dinner, Wake Forest Christmas Parade, Get Fit Franklinton and the Wakefield Elementary School Fun Day. We also bring the Rex Hospital Open, a Nationwide PGA Tour event to TPC Wakefield Plantation, featuring some of the up and coming stars on the PGA Tour.

Rex Hospital was recently named as one of the top 50 hospitals in the nation based on patient safety, clinical outcomes and reputation by Becker's Hospital Review. Other hospitals on the list included Cleveland Clinic, Johns Hopkins Hospital, Mayo Clinic, Vanderbilt University Medical Center and Yale-New Haven Hospital. Residents of northern Wake County deserve that level of care, right here, close to home.
