A leader in comprehensive regional healthcare with connections to Duke Health.

As a regional hub for the counties of northern North Carolina and southern Virginia, Vance County provides exceptional healthcare quality. Maria Parham Health operates a fully accredited, 100+ bed hospital with the region’s most comprehensive medical care. This includes the area’s largest Emergency Department staffed by board certified emergency physicians. The ER is supported by the region’s largest, most advanced Intensive Care Unit.

Other hospital specialties include a Maternity Center with the area’s only Special Care Nursery; the region’s only accredited inpatient rehabilitation unit; an in-house MRI CT and the area’s largest GI suite. The Surgical Services Department incorporates the latest minimally invasive technologies in five operating rooms. The hospital also provides the region’s only accredited respiratory services and a comprehensive Women’s Diagnostic Center.

Maria Parham Oncology Center provides both medical and radiation cancer treatment and utilizes cancer specialists from Duke Medicine. In addition, the hospital offers state-of-the-art outpatient support in physical and occupational, rehabilitation and speech therapy. Maria Parham Health recently completed an extensive $52 million addition and renovation of the hospital.


Maria Parham Health was the first hospital to become a member of Duke LifePoint Healthcare. It’s a joint venture of Duke University Health System and LifePoint Hospitals. The partnership was created to build a strong network of hospitals and healthcare providers across North Carolina. It combines Duke's world-class expertise in clinical services and LifePoint's experience in community-based hospital management. The on-going mission is to provide regional hospitals like Maria Parham Health with the clinical, quality and operational resources they need to deliver world-class healthcare, while continuing to grow and prosper in their communities.


Maria Parham Health is backed by the medical and clinical resources of Duke University Health System, one of the premier healthcare providers in the Southeast. Duke Health is the second largest private employer in North Carolina with nearly 18,000 employees and nearly 1,500 physicians and researchers.

For 2017-18, U.S. News & World Report listed Duke University Hospital as the #1 hospital in North Carolina and #1 in the Raleigh-Durham region for the 17th consecutive year (the hospital is ranked #17 in the United States). Duke University School of Medicine was ranked #7 in the nation. The school’s physician assistant program was ranked #1 in the U.S. and Duke University’s School of Nursing was #1 in the nation. That’s the kind of resources that stand behind Maria Parham Health.
