As a not-for-profit health system, Duke University Health System is committed to caring for our patients, nurturing the sick, and strengthening the well. We honor our tax-exempt status and our responsibility to the counties we serve through various programs, activities and partnerships that are aimed at improving the health of our communities.

The details of our community involvement can be found in the following reports, prepared by Duke University Hospital, Duke Regional Hospital and Duke Raleigh Hospital. These reports were created and are posted in accordance with the community health needs assessment requirements (CHNA) added by the Affordable Care Act and codified as part of the Internal Revenue Code requirements of section 501(r)(3).
