Duke Raleigh Hospital Guild

The Duke Raleigh Hospital Guild was chartered in 2005 to support and enhance the care of the hospital’s patients, their loved ones, and our surrounding community. We are a group of volunteer members dedicated to supporting Duke Raleigh’s mission and vision several projects and initiatives. Whether it’s patient support, community outreach, or education – we are committed to being positive and knowledgeable ambassadors on Duke Raleigh Hospital's behalf.

Guilded Lily gift shop

The Guilded Lily gift shop in the front lobby of Duke Raleigh Hospital is operated by the Duke Raleigh Hospital Guild. It is open weekdays for patients and visitors to send flowers or gifts to patient rooms and for the community at large to enjoy boutique shopping.

Duke Raleigh Gardens

The Duke Raleigh Gardens provide patients and families a peaceful, tranquil place to relax and reflect. The gardens are located on the hospital campus and include water features, walking paths, and foliage, including many of North Carolina’s native plants.

Health, arts and healing

The health, arts, and healing initiative incorporates the arts as a component of patient care at Duke Raleigh Hospital. Visual arts, music, and literary works demonstrate the role that arts can play in enhancing the healing process by reducing stress and creating an uplifting, inspirational environment.

We have provided leadership on a wide range of exciting projects for Duke Raleigh, including Art in the Gardens, Same Day Surgery renovation, the installation of more than 100 pieces of original artwork throughout the hospital, the Comfort Cart, Cancer Center Ambassador Program, and art exhibits. We also helped to implement the Arts Channel for patient rooms through the installation of XM radio channels. Our signature projects include the Guilded Lily Gift Shop and the Duke Raleigh Gardens.
