The Triangle area would be certainly blessed to have just one national ranked Center but to have three facilities with world renowned talent is impressive. A major contribution of course is the University system, in addition the job market in the RTP area for biotech and medical engineers makes the area’s talent pool deep in supporting these hospitals.  Coupled this with multiple national ranks as ‘The Best Place to Live’ also never hurts. With affordable housing and ample job opportunity it’s no wonder the Triangle area is growing. The area medical industry is expanding across the board and needs to recruit top talent at all levels to support them. Below is a list of specialties and procedures these facilities are currently excelling in.
