Treating Mind, Body and Spirit

The Whole-Person Health Campus will deliver the gold standard of highly coordinated care, care models and care environments that are holistic and contribute to the healing process. It will focus on the inseparable connection between our mental and physical health, our minds and our bodies.  

Gardens, green space and light will abound, signifying the importance of fresh air and nature in the healing process. No more will psychiatric care be relegated to a remote location or isolated from the comprehensive care continuum. The new facility’s modern, aesthetically pleasing design will reflect our efforts to eliminate the stigma surrounding mental health.  

By constructing an integrated campus, significant economies of scale will also be realized for delivering key support services. As the fastest growing area of Wake County, the campus is part of a larger 220-acre, mixed-use community being developed with a focus on health and wellness businesses and residences.
