Rex cancer center approved
North Carolina State regulators have approved Rex Healthcare's plan to build a $60.1 million cancer center at its main campus in Raleigh.
The five-story addition is part of a bigger expansion planned at Rex. It's also the latest in a series of major medical projects under way or proposed across the Triangle.
The N.C. Cancer Hospital at Rex will coordinate patient care with the $207 million N.C. Cancer Hospital in Chapel Hill, which the UNC Health Care System opened last fall. UNC bought Rex 10 years ago.
Rex, which is Wake County's second-largest hospital after WakeMed, is expanding its cancer services to handle increasing demand from this region's growing population.
