Building the Future of Cancer Care

Wake Forest Baptist has created the largest cancer center of its kind in the region—to continue providing our patients and their families with the remarkable care and support they deserve, and producing the groundbreaking research that leads to new treatments and therapies.

The six-story addition to our Comprehensive Cancer Center, completed in late 2013, consolidates both inpatient and outpatient services into a single location.

It provides:Cancer Center expansion-courtyard

  • 530,600 total square feet
  • Private rooms throughout
  • Enhancements designed to use natural light and accommodate families
