The NC Triangle is home to some of the best healthcare in the country. The Duke University Hospital System in Durham is consistently nationally ranked in more than 20 different areas of medicine, and it always makes the top 10-15 hospitals overall in the country by US News & World Report.

But Durham’s health care community doesn’t stop with the Duke University collection of hospitals (which includes Duke Children’s-- named the 5th best children's hospital in the country by Daily Parent -- and Duke Regional). There’s also a Veteran's Administration hospital, NC Eye Ear Nose & Throat Hospital and Triangle Orthopedics along with an extensive community of medical companies and private practice physicians (300 and counting …). This huge healthcare presence in the city led Durham to go by the moniker “City of Medicine” for years.

Raleigh and Cary also have great medical facilities in the WakeMed, Duke Raleigh Hospital, and Rex Hospital.  Between the three hospitals, two of which are affiliated with major universities (Rex is a UNC hospital and Duke Raleigh is part of the Duke University Medical Center), there is no specialty area that is not covered, and many of them are nationally ranked.  All three hospitals have smaller hospitals, rehabilitation centers, “healthplexes,” medical parks and emergency facilities and/or clinics all over the Triangle, too – so no town is overlooked, either!
