Carolinas HealthCare System is Atrium Health
April 16, 2018 / Atrium Health
It’s quite remarkable to think back to our system’s humble beginnings when a group of ambitious, young clinicians, not being satisfied with the services available to the public, relentlessly lobbied for a new hospital to better meet the needs of the community. Their persistence – answering the call to serve others – came to life when we opened our doors as Charlotte Memorial Hospital in 1940. Today, nearly 80 years later, we’re proud to say that we’re known as one of the nation’s leading healthcare organizations. And our mission, to improve health, elevate hope and advance healing – for all, is forever bound to our rich heritage.
