Video: Local Artist Presents New Radiation Oncology Mural

Watch the video above to hear local artist Georgia Tardy describe the inspiration behind the latest addition to Duke Raleigh Hospital’s Arts & Health program, a mural entitled “Despite It All, I Will Arise.” The outdoor painting featuring butterflies, lotus flowers, and a large yellow sun extends along the complete path of the patient entrance (rear Executive Drive entrance) to Duke Raleigh’s Radiation Oncology clinic at 3404 Wake Forest Road, where it can be viewed by patients, staff, and visitors as they come to and leave the clinic.

All of the pieces in the Duke Raleigh visual arts program are designed with the patient journey in mind. Learn more about the inspirational art pieces featured on the campus of Duke Raleigh Hospital.

Duke Raleigh Receives A Grade from The Leapfrog Group

Once again, Duke Raleigh Hospital, Duke University Hospital and Duke Regional Hospital earned top scores for hospital safety from The Leapfrog Group, an independent national nonprofit organization run by employers and other large purchasers of health benefits. 

The “A” scores for Leapfrog’s spring 2022 survey are part of the group’s Hospital Safety Grades, issued to hospitals every six months. Duke Health’s three hospitals were among nearly 30,000 hospitals surveyed across the country.

“The consecutive ‘A’ grades from L​​​​​​eapfrog demonstrate our teams’ commitment to patient safety and providing the highest level of care at all three of our hospitals,” said Craig Albanese, M.D., executive vice president and chief operating officer of Duke University Health System. “We are proud of our team and their resilience to uphold quality and safety standards and prevent avoidable harm, especially during a pandemic.”

Visitation Guidelines Updated

As #COVID19 cases in the community have declined, Duke Health has eased many of its hospital visitation guidelines based on recommendations from infectious disease experts and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

The new guidelines still require that all visitors to Duke hospitals be screened upon entering and that they wear masks throughout the facilities. Masks will be provided if needed.

Visitation hours for hospital patients are from 8 a.m.- 9 p.m. daily.
