World Class Care in the Heart of Raleigh

Every aspect of the state-of-the art, eight-story North Carolina Heart & Vascular Hospital was designed with the care and comfort of our patients and their families in mind.  From the ground up, the hospital incorporates best practices in both treatment and prevention of heart and vascular disease.

The new hospital brings UNC REX’s heart and vascular services together into one location with advanced technology and the latest treatments offered by leading heart and vascular physicians for world class care. The 306,000 square foot facility includes eight Cath labs, two electrophysiology procedure rooms, two hybrid procedure rooms, and a Cardiac Rehab facility. 

We offer valet parking at our front entrance and a covered walkway from the parking deck. The overall hospital design incorporates large expansive windows and glass allowing in natural light to promote healing and wellness.  Additional amenities include a family courtyard, gift shop, café, conference center, a sacred space, resource library and outpatient pharmacy.  Opens in March 2017.
