Wilkes Regional Medical Center is owned by the Town of North Wilkesboro, managed by Carolinas HealthCare System, and governed by the Hospital Operating Corporation, a conscientious team of community leaders who volunteer their time.  We are licensed for 130-beds, including a 10-bed skilled nursing unit.  Through our off-site facilities we have expanded our outpatient services to include a Dialysis Center, Home Care and Hospice, and a state of the art Rehabilitation Center.

A physician network, Wilkes Physician Network (WPN), has been established in coordination with Carolinas HealthCare System (CHS) and we continue to add primary care physicians and specialist to this network.  Offices with the Network are located in our prestigious Medical Park Campus within a quarter mile from the hospital that houses 40+ physicians and other medical staff services.

Location: Nestled in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains, Wilkes is an outdoors lover's paradise. It provides a small town atmosphere with wonderful amenities, and is located within easy reach of many prominent North Carolina cities. Located just 80 miles from Charlotte, 45 miles from Winston-Salem, 45 miles from Hickory, and 35 minutes from Boone, Wilkes County remains an ideal location for those looking to escape the fast paced world of city living, while remaining close enough to commute for a night out on the town.
