Duke Raleigh Hospital’s Wilbert Moore, a surgical attendant, is among the winners of Duke’s Presidential Awards.

The Presidential Awards recognize individuals and teams who made distinctive contributions to Duke University and the Health System and have demonstrated its institutional values of respect, trust, inclusion, diversity and excellence during the 2018-19 academic year. The awards are the highest honor given by Duke to staff and faculty members.

Moore will be honored for the vital role he plays in the surgical operations at Duke Raleigh Hospital, protecting patients, nurses and physicians by caring for the surgical facilities and equipment. By serving as a valuable resource for new employees and an adept trouble-shooter, Moore is a key piece of the Duke Raleigh team.

“He serves as an expert in the operating room on all equipment, processes, and is the general ‘go to’ person for any question to arise on positioning of patients, equipment availability in the operating room, and who to go to for needs and resources throughout the hospital,” wrote Denise Lush, operating room nurse manager, in his nomination.

The winners will be honored at an awards ceremony at 4 p.m., February 25, in Page Auditorium which is open to all. A reception will follow in Penn Pavilion. While the event won’t be ticketed, guests are encouraged to register here. Parking is available at the Bryan Center Parking Garage and the Chemistry Lot.


  1. Congratulations, Wilbert!
