Type:Duke Regional Hospital Inpatient Department

Hospital-based clinics are an extension of Duke Health hospitals and have additional facility charges. Some insurance companies process bills with a deductible and coinsurance rather than as a co-pay as for an office visit. This may impact the amount of the bill you are responsible for after payment from your insurance plan. Check with your insurance company before your visit to determine what your responsibility will be.

Our inpatient rehabilitation facility is located in Duke Regional Hospital in Durham. We provide a comprehensive program of care that is personalized for each person we treat.
