Carolinas Medical Center (CMC) is the flagship hospital of Carolinas Healthcare System, which is distinguished throughout the Southeastern United States for its excellent patient care and medical expertise.
CMC operates at two locations: CMC and CMC-Mercy. These locations are 1.3 miles apart.
From modest beginnings in 1943, we have evolved into the largest hospital in the region and a world-class facility that offers a full range of services to the Charlotte community and beyond, with more than 1,100 physicians and providers specializing in all areas of medicine.
CMC serves as the region’s only Level 1 Trauma center and is an approved transplant center for heart, kidney, pancreas and liver. We also serve as one of North Carolina’s five Academic Medical Center Teaching Hospitals, providing residency training for more than 200 physicians in 15 specialties and serve as a satellite for the medical school at UNC-Chapel Hill.
Also situated at CMC is Levine Cancer Institute's academic and research headquarters, Carolinas Rehabilitation, and Levine Children's Hospital, consistently ranked among the top 50 children’s hospitals in the nation.
