Experience the Best of Both Worlds
It's easy for us to say you'll find the best of both worlds here, because you will. We have the resources and opportunities of a metropolitan health system, within the idyllic setting of an 'All American City.' We are close enough to the fast lane to stimulate your senses, yet far enough removed for you to enjoy the simple pleasures of life. And when you're ready to head out of town, you'll find the Atlantic Beaches only a little less than two hours away and you can get to the Blue Ridge Mountains in about three hours.

It's more than the good life. Wilson, is one of North Carolina's most beautiful cities. In fact, Wilson is known as "The City of Beautiful Trees'.

Halfway between New York and Florida, Wilson is a quick 30 minutes from Raleigh and the Raleigh-Durham International Airport. Maybe that's why over 77,000 people call Wilson County home.
