Durham Regional ranked among the best hospitals in NC

Kerry Watson

I am pleased to announce U.S. News & World Report has recognized Durham Regional among the best hospitals in North Carolina’s Piedmont region. The survey by U.S. News & World Report takes into account patient survival rates, safety, reputation among physicians, nurse staffing, technology and other quality measures.

Durham Regional ranked fifth out of 145 hospitals in the state, and third out of 19 hospitals in the Raleigh-Durham metro area, which includes Cary, Chapel Hill, Durham and Raleigh. Our hospital was also named a high performer in the areas of cancer, diabetes and endocrinology, gastroenterology, geriatrics, nephrology, neurology and neurosurgery, orthopaedics, pulmonology and urology.

In addition, our two sister hospitals ranked among the top hospitals in our region. Duke University Hospital was ranked first in the state and the Triangle, and Duke Raleigh Hospital was ranked fifteenth in the state and fifth in the Triangle.

We appreciate your support as we care for our patients and improve the health of the community we serve.
