The 874-bed hospital is the flagship of Carolinas HealthCare System, which encompasses nearly 7,500 beds in North and South Carolina.

The hospital has ties to more than 650 active clinical trials throughout the system, and it earned recognition from Healthgrades in 2014 for excellence in cardiac surgery. On the Carolinas Medical Center campus is The Levine Cancer Institute, which was formed in 2010 as part of a 10-year, $500 million transformation of the hospital's former Blumenthal Cancer Center.

The Transplant Center at Carolinas Medical Center is one of the busiest in the state, averaging more than 100 referrals each month. The center is also one of only a handful in the country with its own hospital-based organ procurement program, which can reduce waiting times for patients.
