Duke Regional Hospital Behavioral Health Expansion and Emergency Department
Duke Health’s behavioral health services are being collocated into a state-of-the-art hospital that will provide a continuum of care to patients who may otherwise fall between the gap of inpatient and outpatient care.
As the home of the Duke University School of Medicine’s behavioral health residency program, supervisors can observe and/or record sessions for ongoing training and residents can move efficiently between programs. An Electroconvulsive Therapy (ECT) procedure suite, connected to Duke’s groundbreaking ECT research, offers inpatient and outpatient treatment in a safe, secure, and dignified environment. Activity spaces and treatment areas are accentuated while nurse care stations are minimized to reduce the feeling of being scrutinized.
