WFUBMC comprises the Wake Forest University School of Medicine and the North Carolina Baptist Hospital.
The North Carolina Baptist Hospital was established in 1923 as an 88 bed community hospital. Wake Forest University School of Medicine (WFUSM) (formerly the Bowman Gray School of Medicine (BGSM)) was founded in 1902 on the old Wake Forest University campus in Wake Forest.
In 1941, BGSM moved in Winston-Salem, North Carolina in 1941 to become affiliated with the North Carolina Baptist Hospital. In 1997 the hospital and medical school realigned to become the Wake Forest University Baptist Medical Center.
The combined entity is now composed of three main entities:
- Wake Forest University School of Medicine
- North Carolina Baptist Hospital, which physically includes the Brenner Children's Hospital and has off-site subsidiary hospitals.
- Wake Forest University Physicians, which includes the attending staff at the hospital.
