Building the Future of Cancer Care

Wake Forest Baptist is creating 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.

When the six-story addition to our Comprehensive Cancer Center is completed in late 2013, it will bring both inpatient and outpatient services into a single location.

It will provide:Cancer Center expansion-courtyard

  • 148 inpatient beds

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