About Frye Regional Medical Center
For nearly a century, Frye Regional Medical Center has provided sophisticated medical services to the residents of Hickory and central western North Carolina. From its modest origins, Frye has evolved into a major medical facility offering specialized care for complex needs. From the latest in minimally invasive heart surgery to laser-guided cancer treatment, Frye provides advanced diagnostics, medicine and surgery through a convenient network of hospital campuses and outpatient locations.
From the start, Frye operated with one simple goal: to offer the best possible healthcare to people in our region. This guiding principle, instilled by the hospital’s namesake Dr. Glen R. Frye and his physician peers, is seen today as an unwavering drive for excellence among the medical staff, nurses, technicians and others who comprise the Frye family. They believe passionately in Frye’s commitment to care for the community and to do so by operating at the most exacting standards possible.
Perhaps this is why Frye has earned so many distinctions: Distinguished Hospital Award from J.D. Power and Associates (three years in a row), Hospital of Choice Award by the American Alliance of Healthcare Providers, Best Hospital in Overall Quality and Image by National Research Corporation, and Best in Charlotte Region for Overall Cardiac Care by HealthGrades. However, the award we are most proud of is the Five Star Satisfaction rating given us by our patients!
Frye’s main campus in downtown Hickory includes a comprehensive heart center, accredited cancer center and bariatric surgery program, orthopedics, inpatient and outpatient rehabilitation, restorative care unit, neurosciences, a women’s center with level III nursery, a neonatal transport team, and pediatrics. The nearby South Campus houses Frye’s psychiatric care program.

· FryeCare Outpatient Imaging Center with diagnostic imaging, cardiac rehabilitation, and sports and industrial rehabilitation
