Duke Raleigh Hospital’s own Jevon Peterson was among those honored in a virtual ceremony as a 2021 Triangle Business Journal Healthcare Hero in April.

It’s the 20th year of the publication’s Health Care Heroes Awards program, honoring “Triangle individuals and organizations for putting innovation and compassion to work to improve the human condition,” according to the Triangle Business Journal. The awards honor those in a range of health care fields, including COVID-19 frontline workers, as well as nurses, volunteers, clinicians and researchers.

As Assistant Vice President of Hospital Operations, Peterson has been an integral part of how Duke Raleigh Hospital has been able to provide care during the COVID-19 pandemic. It is through his work and leadership that we have been able to continue to safely deliver care as we adjusted operations to treat COVID-19 patients and assistant those in our community in need of life-saving medical treatments, procedures, and surgeries.

Throughout the pandemic, it has been his ability to not only prepare and adapt the existing hospital campus to a pandemic, but to continue to help us expand our services as our community grows and its healthcare needs evolve through several projects that include the South Pavilion.

Peterson told Triangle Business Journal that he chose a career in healthcare because “the highly regulated and specialized health care industry requires precise planning and coordination, particularly when working in an active health care environment. Consideration for all the risks is certainly a test, but the end results are well worth the challenges. Being a part of a bigger mission, for which the results will change the outcomes of people’s lives, is extremely rewarding.”
