The Duke Clinical Research Institute (DCRI) is the largest academic re- search organization in the world with registries of more than 100,000 patients, and economic and quality of life studies in populations spanning more than 20 therapeu- tic areas. The DCRI has conducted studies at more than 37,000 sites in 65 countries, enrolling more than 1.2 mil- lion patients and producing more than 10,000 journal publication articles. Duke is a leader in human genetics research helping to identify genes associated with obesity and with susceptibility to such diseases as breast can- cer, colon cancer, Lou Gehrig's disease, and Alzheimer's disease, while opening new avenues toward curing and treating these devastating ailments. Duke is also a major site of the Howard Hughes Medical Institute, where re- searchers gain new insights almost daily into Parkinson's disease, schizophrenia, and diabetes. Duke is the second-largest private employer in the state with nearly 27,000 employees in the University Health System and the academic Duke University Medical Center. U.S. News & World Report has placed Duke University Medical Center among its honor roll of top hospitals in the nation numerous times. The magazine also again recently placed Duke's School of Medicine among the top 10 medi- cal schools in the nation. The Triangle's leading provider of emergency pediatric care is WakeMed. Serving over 40,000 children each year WakeMed and its freestanding Children's Emergency De- partment has become a national model for similar services throughout the country. In addition to the emergency department, Children's Hospital features inpatient and in- tensive care services stafed around-the-clock by pediatric intensivists, children's diabetes programs, and pediatric specialists in surgery, neurology, endocrinology, orthope- dics, neonatology, and child development. WakeMed North ofers the state's frst stand-alone full-service emergency department that has now been expanded into Wake County's frst Women's Hospital. WakeMed also is one of only 18 "mother's milk" banks in the country. WakeMed is only the fourth NIDCAP (New- born Individualized Developmental Care and Assessment Program) Certifed Nursery in the world. This certifcation is a refection of their dedication to neonatal developmen- tal care and focus on patient-family-centered care. In the top 3 largest healthcare systems in the state, WakeMed is a not-for-proft health system with over 900 private beds and a Heart Center that oversees one of the highest volumes of cardiac care in the U.S. WakeMed makes its home in Raleigh but has multiple outpatient clinics as well as two hospitals.

WakeMed has ofcially earned the American Nurses Credentialing Center's Magnet designation recognizing their nurses' excellent eforts in patient care and services. The largest private mental health practice in the Tri- angle is Carolina Partners in Mental Healthcare (CPMH), with 13 ofces, over 60 professional associates and an attentive and supportive ofce staf at convenient loca- tions including: Raleigh, Durham, Mebane, Chapel Hill, Cary and Wake Forest. At CPMH, they understand that some clients live in rural areas of North Carolina and driving into the Triangle for weekly counseling is nearly impossible. With this thought in mind, CPMH now ofers teletherapy, a counseling service for clients who cannot travel due to distance or work schedules (or those sufer with anxiety, depression or agoraphobia). Teletherapy allows these clients the same benefts as "in-person" counseling sessions with trusted therapists who talk with the patients over the phone, or using applications such as Skype or other video conferencing applications. Doctors at Michigan State University's Department of Psychiatry have used teletherapy since 2005 with excellent results.
