WakeMed Announces Plans To Build Hospital In Garner

GARNER – WakeMed filed a certificate of need Monday (today) with the state to build a 45-bed acute care hospital with 24 emergency department bays in Garner.

The 170,000-square-foot hospital, if approved, would be located on 27 acres around White Oak Road and Timber Drive East. Groundbreaking would be in fall 2024 with completion in fiscal year 2027. [See fact sheet on Garner hospital plans.]

WakeMed has three healthplexes—one in Garner on U.S. 70, one in Brier Creek and one in Apex—that all include full-service emergency departments (EDs). The Garner Healthplex ED is responsible for 44 percent of the overall healthplex ED patient volume.

Pending state approval, the Garner Healthplex ED, which currently has 12 beds, would move to the new hospital and would have 24 beds.

The current Garner Healthplex would convert to a medical park, which would include medical practices and ambulatory services such as imaging and lab.

  1. Covid money must be paying off! Now if UHC and wakemed would reach an agreement for services it would be nice so I can use wakemed again if needed.
