Medical Campuses

UNC Health Foundation – not The UNC Health Foundation

For designed materials keep UNC Health Foundation on one line

UNC Health

The brand and logo changed in 2020; was previously UNC Healthcare

UNC School of Medicine

Avoid saying the UNC School of Medicine, unless using “the” is required in context, ie, “So much has changed at the School of Medicine …”

UNC Health Rex | UNC Rex Hospital | NC Rex Heart and Vascular Hospital

Use UNC Health Rex for first mention, then switch to UNC Rex. Rex is always lowercase – you’ll see plenty of REX references but these are either older or wrong.

UNC Children’s | N.C. Children’s Hospital

In text refer to “UNC Children’s” even though the logo says UNC Health Children’s

UNC Lineberger Comprehensive Cancer Center | N.C. Basnight Cancer Hospital

Use full title first; after first full reference OK to say “UNC Lineberger”

Until 9/22 it was N.C. Cancer Hospital
