Morehead Manor Bed and Breakfast is only about a five minute drive away from a world-class healthcare system.  The Duke University Hospital and its award-winning medical practitioners are famous for their excellent medical treatment as well as compassionate care of patients.  People are often referred to Duke University Hospital because of Duke’s highly-skilled medical personnel and advanced medical technology.  A big reason why Durham, North Carolina is called, “The City of Medicine” is because of Duke University Hospital and other excellent hospitals and healthcare services available in Durham. 

As part of its commitment to patient-centered care, Duke Medicine has adopted an online tool that helps patients connect with their loved ones at home.  CarePages are free web pages that patients can create to communicate with family and friends throughout their experience at Duke Raleigh Hospital.  Each CarePage is private and fully secure.  Only those given a password can visit the page.  Care pages can help:

  • Patients and/or those with them to journal their hospital stay
  • Post messages and share photos
  • Update loved ones all at once, reducing the need for multiple phone calls
  • Receive words of encouragement
  • Connect with other patients facing similar challenges
  • Learn more about healthcare issues
  • Invite others to receive your latest updates through e-mail alerts
  • Recognize a hospital staff member who goes above and beyond with a CareCompliment

Duke Children’s Hospital and Health Center is dedicated to offering a welcoming, family-centered patient care environment. Duke’s staff is committed to providing expert, compassionate care to each of their pediatric patients, as well as responding to the concerns and needs of parents and family members.
