Discharge Hospitality Center Updates

Since opening in April, the Discharge Hospitality Center has welcomed over 500 guests waiting for transportation home after discharge. Thank you to our clinical partners for helping to make this space a great success! To better serve the needs of our guests, several updates have been made. Learn more about them here.

  • New hours of operation: 9 a.m. - 7 p.m. Monday-Friday
  • The DHC is now able to accept discharged patients who are on contact precautions. Patients on enteric, airborne, droplet or protective precautions remain ineligible for discharge to the DHC 
  • The DHC is accepting all patients meeting inclusion criteria utilizing Tar Heel taxi or Lyft for transportation home. If you have a patient with a voucher for a taxi or Lyft, please call the DHC at 5-4707

We look forward to providing an excellent discharge experience for your patients!
