Our Culture

It doesn’t take long to realize that WakeMed is a unique organization and home to a culture that is unlike any other.

It’s a place where we gladly go above and beyond to help our patients, their families and each other, reaching far beyond our walls to help make our community a healthier place to live, work and play.  It’s a place where we provide not only outstanding medical treatment, but the care and caring that leads to healing. It’s a place where people are proud to spend 40, 45 and even 50 years helping us work toward our mission.

It’s a place where every member of the team is a member of the WakeMed family.
