Facts About UNC Hospitals


UNC Hospitals opened in September 1952 under the name North Carolina Memorial Hospital. In May 1989, the N.C. General Assembly created the University of North Carolina Hospitals entity as a unifying organization to govern constituent hospitals and to project a modern and accurate identity for the hospitals of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.

UNC Hospitals includes North Carolina Cancer Hospital, North Carolina Children's Hospital, North Carolina Memorial Hospital, North Carolina Neurosciences Hospital, and North Carolina Women's Hospital. In 2002, the N.C. Children's and Women's Hospitals moved to new state-of-the-art facilities designed to offer high-quality health care in a comfortable, family-friendly environment. The N.C. Cancer Hospital opened in August 2009 and is the clinical home of the UNC Lineberger Comprehensive Cancer Center.

UNC Hospitals is a public, academic medical center operated by and for the people of North Carolina. The Hospitals' mission is to provide high quality patient care, to educate health care professionals, to advance research and to provide community service.

Each year UNC Hospitals cares for residents from all 100 counties in North Carolina and several surrounding states. About a third of UNC Hospitals' patients come from the Triangle  region of North Carolina.
