WakeMed to welcome first patients at women's hospital

RALEIGH (WTVD) -- Wake County's first women's only hospital welcomes its first patients on Monday.

The 61-bed hospital is part of an expansion at WakeMed North, in north Raleigh.

One major difference patients will notice is there's more of a hotel vibe.

There will be lots of light, in-room massages, manicures, pedicures, and dry-cleaning services.

WakeMed will also be using the "laborist model," which ensures a group of OB/GYNs are there at all times.
