Heart Center Inn at WakeMed

It's All Under One Roof 

Care, Comfort, Compassion - All attributes one wants when undergoing a cardiac procedure.

The same could be said for those close to the patient such as family and friends. That's why the Heart Center Inn at the WakeMed Heart Center was created: to provide care, comfort and compassion to those seeking the Heart Center's services.

The Heart Center Inn is a 38-room facility located on the WakeMed Heart Center's top floor. It operates just like a hotel and is competitively priced while offering the utmost in convenience, special resources and services.

The Heart Center's patients like staying at the Inn for the convenience factor. Patients traveling to the Heart Center, and even those in our own backyard, like to stay the night before a morning procedure. Or if the patient is discharged from the hospital in the evening and prefers not to travel a long distance home, the Inn offers a comfortable option. Patients staying in a Heart Center Inn room pre- or post-procedure can do so at a discounted rate.

For family members of cardiac patients who require staying in the hospital overnight or for several days following a procedure, the Inn's close location to the patient rooms provides ease and comfortable rest during an anxious time. Inn guests are just an elevator ride away from their loved ones recovering in the hospital.
