 in the country. The rest of Wake Forest University would follow the medical school to Winston-Salem in 1956.

A few years earlier, in 1923, the Southern Baptist denomination had established a charity hospital in Winston-Salem, the North Carolina Baptist Hospital. The city was chosen because the Chamber of Commerce pledged to meet the requirements of providing a suitable building site (“wilds of Ardmore”) and $100,000 toward the construction of the facilities. The School of Medicine was founded in association with the hospital, and today both are operated under the umbrella organization Wake Forest Baptist Health.

Modern Era and Expansion

In 1997, the school was renamed the Wake Forest University School of Medicine, while the medical school campus became the Bowman Gray Campus. In 2011, the name would be changed slightly again to the Wake Forest School of Medicine as a part of an organization-wide rebranding effort.

A flurry of building projects costing a total of over $700 billion greatly expanded the School of Medicine and medical center campus in the 1990s and 2000s. These projects include Ardmore Tower, J. Paul Sticht Center on Aging and Rehabilitation, CompRehab Plaza, Brenner Children's Hospital
