In the Community

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.

Giving Back

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 AssociationDuring the fall of 2014, our employees raised $10,857 for the American Heart Association's Triangle Heart Walk to prevent and treat heart disease.

Crayons2Calculators: In August 2014, Duke Regional employees filled 22 bins of supplies for Crayons2Calculators (C2C). C2C provides free school supplies to classroom teachers in the Durham Public School system.

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 $20,906 in 2014.

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. Watch a video to learn more about Project SEARCH.

Salvation Army: In December 2014, Duke Regional Hospital employees once again adopted 100 angels from the Salvation Army Angel Tree Program. Boys and girls in the community received their wish gifts thanks to the generous donations.
