About High Point Medical Center
High Point Medical Center, one of the region's premier health care providers, traces its roots all the way back to 1904 with the opening of a hospital in High Point to treat typhoid fever. In the century since our opening we have continued to dedicate ourselves to the health care of our community by expanding our hospital services and building a growing network of physician offices.
Joining Atrium Health Wake Forest Baptist's System
High Point Regional Health officially became part of the Wake Forest Baptist Health family on Saturday, September 1, 2018, and had a new name, Wake Forest Baptist Health - High Point Medical Center. On August 18, 2021, Wake Forest Baptist and Atrium Health unveiled their strategic combination's new brand - Atrium Health Wake Forest Baptist - that reflects and acknowledges both the importance of each regional organization's current brand as well as Wake Forest Baptist’s and Atrium Health’s joined commitment to be the pre-eminent health care provider and learning health system in North Carolina.
Today, High Point Medical Center serves a region encompassing 600,000+ people. That’s a far cry from the town of 6,500 that so desperately needed a hospital in 1904. While our region has certainly grown and our techniques of caring for the sick only vaguely resemble the methods of care available to our forefathers, one thing remains the same: our commitment to care for patients one at a time.
In today’s high-tech, fast-paced health care environment, High Point Medical Center sets itself apart by putting patients first. Our patients’ needs, wants, comfort and satisfaction drive every decision we make and each action we take. As a leader in understanding the needs of our region and in providing exceptional health services to citizens today and for many generations to come, we embark on our second century of care.
