We are excited to share a new step in the relationship between UNC Rex and UNC Health, with the Rex Healthcare Foundation’s integration into the UNC Health Foundation.
UNC Rex Healthcare has served the people of Wake County and the surrounding area for more than 125 years, offering expert care and a commitment to meeting the community’s needs for generations. And for more than two decades, UNC Rex has proudly been part of UNC Health. This partnership has enhanced UNC Rex’s ability to provide patients with the best patient-centered care, as well as the collaborative expertise of some of the world’s top researchers and clinical trials.
We are excited to share a new step in the relationship between UNC Rex and UNC Health, with the Rex Healthcare Foundation’s integration into the UNC Health Foundation. Originally founded as the Medical Foundation of North Carolina, Inc., the UNC Health Foundation fosters philanthropic support of clinical care, research and education for areas across UNC Health – including UNC Lineberger Comprehensive Cancer Center, UNC Children’s and the UNC School of Medicine.
This partnership expands our reach into the community and strengthens our ability to provide for patients and their families where they need it most. Most importantly, all money raised for UNC Rex Healthcare will continue to support and expand the programs and services provided at UNC Rex.
