Duke Raleigh Hospital Community Engagement

Duke Raleigh Hospital is proud to be a part of the community. We are committed to collaborating with the community to invest our time, talents and energy in improving the health of the community we serve.

Our True North Statement: Emerging Healthier…Together

Duke Raleigh Hospital will convene and innovate alongside community visionaries with the shared determination of ensuring every area resident has the opportunity to realize their full health potential by identifying, addressing and eliminating the harms that impact this realization.

Framework for Community Advancement

  • Invest: We will invest in our communities financially and with our time and talents, through sponsorships, donations and initiatives that align with our True North.
  • Support: We will support community events and initiatives, and we will serve on community boards to become more aware of community needs, forge and deepen relationships with community members, and build trust.
  • Educate: We will advance the message of population health through multiple modalities, including community health forums, partnerships, community faith councils, preceptorships and internships with local colleges and universities.
  • Employ: We will employ local residents and create trajectories for healthcare careers at Duke Raleigh Hospital through community partnerships with local schools, economic vitality and workforce organizations.
  • Uplift: We will uplift what is right, true and just by promoting health equity and working to eliminate barriers to accessing health care and living healthy lives. We will deliver care that is equitable and compassionate and values the diversity of the communities we serve, and we will ask the same of our partners.
