This includes the Main OR, Bedtower (5th floor home of orthopaedic residents, conferences, and inpatients), Children's Hospital, new Cancer Hospital, and Neurosciences Hospital. The Ambulatory Care Center with Ambulatory Surgical Center is two blocks south, Spine Center is 2 miles away, and the Carolina Pointe II outpatient clinic is about 4 miles away. See the map of our locations to get the lay of the land.
For over 40 years, our residents have enjoyed working at WakeMed. Located in Raleigh, North Carolina, (about a 20-30 minute drive for most residents from their homes in Chapel Hill or Durham), WakeMed is a 760-bed private, not-for-profit health care system. A Level 1 Trauma Center, WakeMed is the second busiest trauma center in the state of North Carolina. WakeMed also serves as a referral hospital servicing many of the surrounding counties. Our residents primarily work with the staff of WakeOrtho, as well as learning from other private practice orthopaedists (Dr. Sarah Dewitt; Raleigh Hand Clinic weekly hand conference).
