Your Stay at WakeMed
CarePages: An easy way to stay connected
Staying connected to family and friends is an important part of the hospital experience for patients. Phone calls, cards, gifts and flowers can brighten any patient's day, but simply knowing that loved ones care makes a big difference in the recovery process. CarePages are private, personalized Web pages created by patients or their family members.
