UNC Health’s plans to build a hospital in Research Triangle Park have been approved by state regulators.
The 40-bed hospital will be built across N.C. 54 from The Frontier, in the heart of the park. The hospital will have two operating rooms, a 24-hour emergency department and an obstetrical unit for delivering babies that includes two dedicated C-section operating rooms.
UNC says about 300 people will work at the $252 million hospital, which it hopes to open in 2026.
The hospital will be in the Durham portion of RTP, and UNC told state regulators that it expects a large majority of patients will come from Durham County. Many of those patients will work nearby, said spokesman Alan Wolf.
