Tomorrow many of us will gather with family and friends to reflect on the year, give thanks and perhaps eat a bit too much turkey.
On behalf of the entire Duke Regional Hospital team, I would like to express gratitude to our patients, their loved ones and the community for trusting us with your health care. Patients are at the center of everything we do. They are why we are here.
A proud part of Duke Medicine, Duke Regional is committed to providing exceptional care with the personal touch and convenience only a community hospital can offer. Our mission is “to care for our patients, nurturing the sick and strengthening the well, and to improve the health of the communities we serve.”
I’m proud to work with an incredibly dedicated team of physicians, staff and volunteers who strive for excellence in all that they do. Thank you for allowing us to care for you.
Happy Thanksgiving from your friends at Duke Regional Hospital!
In 2012, the United States Department of Agriculture estimated that 5.14 billion pounds of turkey would be consumed in the U.S. That’s about 16.4 pounds per person. Our love of turkey is evident this time of year.
In keeping with the season and to help those who might be concerned about tackling a turkey this week, we wanted to share a link or two on turkey cooking tips and food safety.
And just for fun, check out these terrific turkey facts.
