Our Mission & Culture
At WakeMed, every decision we make is in the best interest of our patients and their families. To deliver this exceptional, patient-centered care, we rely on a talented, diverse and passionate team who shares our dedication to improving the health and well-being of our community.
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 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 you aren’t just an employee – you are a member of the WakeMed family.

We recognize that each person’s individual experiences make us stronger as a whole and we work hard to honor and celebrate those things that make us unique.
