Cold and Flu Season Can Be a Monster

Flu & Cold Season Can Be A Monster

Help us protect our patients, families and staff from RSV and the flu by following these visitation restrictions currently in effect.

  • No visitors under the age of 12 are allowed in patient care areas.
  • Please do not visit patients if you are experiencing fever, vomiting, diarrhea or cold or flu-like symptoms.

Pregnancy & Childbirth

The newest addition to the WakeMed family is WakeMed North Family Health & Women’s Hospital. Our mission is to deliver happy, healthy babies while caring for birthing mothers throughout the entire delivery process.  We have also added the around-the-clock services of board-certified hospital-based OB-GYNs to your team. A valuable extension of your own obstetrician, hospital-based OB-GYNs provide an added level of safety because they see only patients who are in the hospital and are focused on you throughout your entire experience, from labor through post-partum care.

The core of our new hospital is obstetrics (OB) services. We will offer a full range of obstetrics services, from general obstetrics to the most sophisticated specialty care. Our couplet care nursing model allows you and your new baby to remain together while you are here. But we take it one step further – your spouse and children may stay with you throughout this miraculous event in your spacious post-partum suite. Because your family can be united throughout this time, everyone can be involved from the start, which is added peace of mind for you. This is what we call family-centered care.
