Our History

Wayne UNC Health Care: More Than a Century of Service in Wayne County, NC

At Wayne UNC Health Care, we are proud to champion a heritage of exceptional, community-focused medical care in Goldsboro, NC and across Wayne County. In fact, our passion and dedication to excellence in healthcare goes all the way back to the efforts of a Goldsboro pastor in the late 1800s.

Reverend Francis Wallace Farries, a Scotch Canadian, who was the pastor of Goldsboro’s First Presbyterian Church, was struck by the fact that there was no hospital in the town when he tried to help a man injured in an accident. With the support of his congregation and several prominent local citizens, he raised enough money and was approved by the city to open a hospital in 1896.

From that time on, Wayne UNC Health Care has been focused on the healthcare needs of the community. Through the years, we have provided crucial vaccines, employed renowned physicians, established an Emergency Hospital and blood bank, trained nurses and expanded our services to offer all that we do today.
