UNC REX Healthcare to Hold Community Forum for Holly Springs Community Hospital

Input from residents, employers and others needed as planning continues for 50-bed hospital

UNC REX Healthcare of Holly SpringsWHAT:

UNC REX Healthcare will hold a community forum on Weds., June 28, at the Holly Springs Town Hall to collect feedback on the new community hospital that’s planned for Holly Springs. Input from residents of southern Wake County is crucial as planning accelerates for the new 50-bed hospital that will be built on UNC REX’s Holly Springs campus at 781 Avent Ferry Road. The new hospital is expected to open in 2020.


UNC REX is evaluating the needs of the fast-growing Holly Springs and southern Wake County communities. As construction continues on a second medical office building at UNC REX’s Holly Springs campus, plans for the new hospital are being updated to take into account projected growth, changing demographics and additional services that need to be offered. Input from residents, employers, community leaders and others will help with the planning and design process.

“As we plan this important asset for the Holly Springs community, we want to hear from residents to determine the proper mix of services,” said Tom Williams, vice president of ambulatory care at UNC REX. “We look forward to expanding the medical care available in this fast-growing region.”


UNC REX executives and clinicians will join Holly Springs leaders to lead a discussion with the community. If residents are unable to attend the forum, they can provide feedback about the project online at or by emailing
