UNC REX Healthcare Update

As a way to further cement its position as a key part of UNC Health Care, Rex Healthcare will formally change its name to UNC REX Healthcare. REX president Steve Burriss recently shared the news with all REX employees.

Burriss said the new name reflects REX’s history and heritage in Raleigh, and incorporates the health system name as a way to extend REX's reputation on a statewide and national level. Additionally, as REX providers continue to work more collaboratively with providers across the health care system, it must be clear to consumers and patients that REX Healthcare is part of the UNC Health Care system brand.

Burriss thanked the REX co-workers who have helped it grow from a community hospital serving Wake County to a tertiary-level regional referral center serving Wake and many surrounding counties.

The new logo will rollout gradually over the next year.
