Health Care You Can Count On
Johnston Health is Johnston County’s health care system. Established in 1951, the flagship hospital in Smithfield has 149 acute care beds and shares a campus with the SECU Hospice House and the Johnston Medical Mall, which is anchored by HealthQuest Fitness and Wellness Center. Johnston Health Clayton, which opened in 2009 as an outpatient center, became a full-service hospital after adding a three-story, 50-bed addition in January 2015.
Through a recent affiliation, Johnston Health is now part of UNC Health Care. With this partnership, we are supporting our mission to improve the health of the people in our communities by bringing more services and specialties to patients in Johnston County.
