Duke Raleigh Hospital Begins Construction Project Joining Buildings

Map with construction MOB7RoadRemoved-March2019-updated-horizontal-1500On May 20, 2019, Duke Raleigh Hospital is beginning a construction project that will connect two buildingsMOB 7 and the Main Hospitalallowing us to better care for patients, their loved ones, and our team.

During construction, there will be a number of changes in how to access the two buildings:

  • The road between MOB 7 and the hospital will close permanently on May 20, 2019. The entrance and drop-off and pick-up for Same Day Surgery will move to the front entrance of the hospital.
  • A newly hired transport team will be on hand to guide visitors to the proper location. Same Day Surgery patients will be escorted from the main hospital entrance to their surgery destination.
  • The entrances of MOB7 and Imaging will be in the midst of construction. A protected entrance for imaging will be constructed to ensure the safety and comfort of people coming into that area. While construction will be near the MOB 7 entrance, the doors will remain in use. Patients will use the above-mentioned shuttle service.

Our construction implementation team has been thoroughly preparing, making thoughtful decisions to help us continue offering high-quality patient care throughout this process. It’s our goal to keep disruptions to a minimum. In the Duke Raleigh way, we will continue to strive for excellence during this time.

Thank you for your patience. We are excited to grow our campus to improve the experience of all our visitors and staff.
