N.C. Memorial Hospital

UNC Hospitals opened in September 1952 under the name N. C. 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 Children's Hospital, North Carolina Memorial Hospital, North Carolina Neurosciences Hospital, North Carolina Women's Hospital and the North Carolina Cancer Hospital.

In 2001, the 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.

In 2009, the N.C. Cancer Hospital opened 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 30 percent of UNC Hospitals' patients come from Orange and surrounding counties.
