Duke University Hospital officially opened Thursday the new Duke Medicine Pavilion, a major expansion of Duke University Hospital addressing patient needs and the increasing demand for Duke medical services and priority programs.

The 8-floor, 608,000 sq.ft. pavilion includes 160 critical care rooms, 18 operating rooms and an imaging suite. The building's environmentally friendly design earned it a LEED silver certification.
During Thursday's opening Duke Medicine faculty, staff and volunteers were invited to tour the facility. A community open house and health fair will be held from 111 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday, June 15.
