— A historic Raleigh hospital is about to open its doors again.

St. Agnes Hospital served the city's black residents for decades from its location near the St. Augustine's College campus.

The hospital, which also served as a training ground for hundreds of nurses and operated a medical school for a quarter of a century, closed in 1961, when Wake Med opened.

Now, developer Billie Redmond is partnering with Rex Healthcare to build a primary and urgent care center on the St. Agnes site.
