This NC hospital is ranked nation’s second-most ‘socially responsible.’ Here’s why.

Abstract: In a new set of hospital rankings released last month, Duke Regional Hospital in Durham was named the nation’s second-most “socially responsible” hospital, while other Triangle- and North Carolina-based hospitals also received high marks. The rankings, released annually since 2020 by nonprofit think tank the Lown Institute, are the first “to define clear, measurable standards for hospital social responsibility, providing “benchmarks for hospitals to measure how well they serve their patients and communities.”
