Atrium Medical Center Elevates Patient Care

In the ever-evolving landscape of healthcare, Atrium Medical Center remains at the forefront of progress, continually enhancing its vision to inspire better health. Through strategic partnerships and innovative initiatives, your full-service hospital ensures that you and your family receive top-notch medical care close to home.

The Christ Hospital Health Network and Premier Health announced in June 2023 an innovative collaborative partnership that will enable more patients in the region access to highly specialized cardiovascular care close to home through joint efforts of leading experts at both organizations. As part of this joint venture, Dr. J. Michael Smith is providing cardiothoracic surgical services in the Middletown area on a part time basis. Dr. Smith joins Premier Health’s John Miller, MD, at Greater Dayton Cardiothoracic and Vascular Surgeons, located at Atrium.

Atrium received a "high-performing" designation for heart attack, stroke, and maternity (uncomplicated pregnancy) care in U.S. News & World Report's annual rankings. And Cincy magazine readers endorsed Atrium as the "Best Place to Have a Baby" in their 2023 Family Choice Awards.

The Leapfrog Group granted Atrium two consecutive "A" safety grades in 2023, acknowledging the hospital's dedication to preventing patient harm and errors. This "A" rating underscores Atrium’s unwavering commitment to patient safety and quality care.

Premier Health attained a Level 3 Geriatric Emergency Department Accreditation from the American College of Emergency Physicians. Atrium's senior emergency center ensures that older adults receive specialized care and compassion during their most vulnerable moments.

In the ongoing battle against substance use disorder, Premier Health has taken a pioneering step by introducing the Substance Use Navigator program. This program, a first in the region, operates in the emergency department, assisting patients with chemical dependency assessments and facilitating connections to care, including treatment facility placements and wrap-around services.

Beyond the hospital walls, Atrium actively engages in community support initiatives.

Premier Community Health kickstarted 2023 by unveiling its new mobile clinic, providing health screenings and wellness programs in areas with limited access. This initiative, funded by the Premier Health Community Benefits Program and Premier Health's hospital foundations, ensures healthcare affordability and accessibility, with the mobile clinic making appearances at local events and public places.

Premier Health’s mission – We Care. We Teach. We Innovate. We Serve. –  is carried out in the level of excellence our dedicated team of physicians, providers, nurses, and clinical and support professionals bring to Atrium every day.
