Who We Serve

The UNC REX Skilled Nursing & Long-term Care Facilities are for patients whose condition requires around-the-clock oversight and treatment that can only be given by licensed nurses. Our team will provide rehabilitation and nursing care for patients who require short-term recovery following an acute illness or accident. We are also here for patients who may be bedfast, or who require treatment of chronic conditions as well as assistance with the activities of daily living for extended periods of time.

Our care is provided by an interdisciplinary team of licensed nurses, nursing assistants, rehabilitation therapists, dietitians, social services and activities therapists.

Our Facilities

Both the Apex and Raleigh centers have beautifully designed outdoor areas for residents, patients and visiting family members to enjoy. Our Apex center offers outdoor gardens and courtyards adjacent to each wing. Garden areas feature flowering shrubs, trees and perennials with walking paths that are smooth and wide to accommodate wheelchairs and walkers.
