Case Study

Duke Brier Creek


The Issue

Duke Health created tremendous growth opportunities in the Brier Creek area, including the need for additional services and supporting medical office space. How could Duke Health expand its footprint most efficiently?


The Solution

Davis Moore principals developed and executed a real estate strategy that included the development of two additional facilities of 30,000 and 44,500 square feet, which includes primary care, urgent care, endoscopy services, women’s health, oral-facial surgery, internal medicine, and ancillary services. The program was organized and executed over a 10year period.


The Benefit

Duke Health was able to grow its organization in an important area of Raleigh as an early mover in Brier Creek. As the area has grown, Duke Health has expanded rapidly with occupancy costs that are much lower than competitors. Additionally, Duke’s physician practice group was able to take advantage of its long-term need for space and thereby profit many millions of dollars by buying buildings it chose to occupy.
