Health System Overview

Duke University Health System is a world-class hospital and health care network supported by outstanding and renowned clinical faculty, nurses and care teams. Duke's services span the full continuum of care, from primary care to medical and surgical specialties and subspecialties, all dedicated to putting our patients at the forefront of everything we do.

Inpatient Services

Our health system includes three hospitals - Duke University Hospital on our Duke University Medical Center campus, Duke Regional Hospital and Duke Raleigh Hospital.

Outpatient Services

In addition to its hospitals, Duke Health has an extensive, geographically dispersed network of outpatient facilities that include primary care offices, urgent care centers, multi-specialty clinics and outpatient surgery centers. This network enables the same world-renowned Duke Health care teams to provide consultative services, perform medical procedures or conduct diagnostic tests without an overnight hospital stay. Duke Primary Care is the largest primary care network in the greater Triangle area with family and internal medicine providers and pediatricians in more than 40 locations throughout the region. Duke Primary Care physicians have consulting associate faculty appointments with Duke in their respective academic departments. Duke Connected Care, a community-based, physician-led network, includes a group of doctors, hospitals and other healthcare providers who work together to deliver high-quality care to Medicare Fee-for-Service patients in Durham and its surrounding areas. 

The Private Diagnostic Clinic (PDC) is the faculty physician practice for Duke Health. It was one of the first and largest academic multi-specialty group practices in the United States. The PDC owns and operates more than 140 primary and specialty care clinics in 10 counties in central and eastern North Carolina. Through a diverse and integrated network of Duke providers, patients have convenient, accessible and high-quality primary and specialty care close to home.
