For more than 35 years, Duke Regional Hospital has been committed to caring for residents of Durham and the surrounding communities. Our employees devote time, money, and lots of energy to causes throughout this community -- because this is where we live, too.
We’re your friends and your neighbors, and our commitment to caring extends far beyond the hospital walls by giving back and through sponsorships. We also have an active volunteer program.
Community Needs Assessment
Duke Regional Hospital, along with Duke University Hospital and Duke Raleigh Hospital, is committed to caring for our community. Read about our community involvement in 2012 and goals for 2013 in our Health Needs Assessment.
Duke Regional Hospital is proud to be a part of our community. We give back by partnering with a number of charitable organizations. Here are a few of the organizations we have supported recently.
American Heart Association: During the fall of 2013, our employees raised $6,052 for the American Heart Association's Triangle Heart Walk to prevent and treat heart disease.
Crayons2Calculators: Duke Regional Hospital participates in the Fill the Bus campaign twice a year collecting school supplies for Crayons2Calculators (C2C). C2C provides free school supplies to classroom teachers in the Durham Public School system. Duke Regional employees filled 22 bins of supplies in August 2014. The hospital had previously collected 13 fully packed bins of supplies in December 2013.
Doing Good in the Neighborhood: Duke Regional Hospital, along with Duke University and Duke University Health System employees, once again participated in the Doing Good in the Neighborhood campaign to raise funds for various programs in Durham and the region. Duke Regional employees donated $22,551 in 2013.
Project SEARCH: Since 2011, Duke Regional Hospital has been proud to serve as a host location for Project SEARCH. This program prepares students with developmental and intellectual disabilities for the workforce through on-the-job training and specialized education. At Duke Regional, students divide their time between classroom instruction and hands-on training in hospital departments.
Project SEARCH is a collaborative partnership with Alliance Behavioral Healthcare, OE Enterprises Inc., NC Vocational Rehabilitation, Durham Public Schools, Project SEARCH (National) and Duke Regional Hospital.
Salvation Army: In December 2013, Duke Regional Hospital employees once again adopted 175 angels from the Salvation Army Angel Tree Program. Boys and girls in the community received their wish gifts thanks to the generous donations.
