UNC REX Healthcare is proud to be the first hospital in the Triangle to be awarded Magnet status in April of 2006. UNC REX was re-designated as a Magnet hospital for third consecutive time in 2015. This award puts UNC REX Nurses in an elite group of the top 2 percent of nurses in the nation. 

The Magnet Recognition program affords important national recognition to healthcare organizations that demonstrate sustained excellence in nursing care.
