Included within the Atrium Health Navicent system is Atrium Health Navicent The Medical Center, a 637 bed, nationally-verified Level I-designated Trauma Center and a three-time Magnet Designated hospital for nursing excellence worldwide.

Atrium Health Navicent provides a broad range of community-based, outpatient diagnostic, primary care, extensive home health and hospice care, and comprehensive cancer and rehabilitation services spanning the full continuum of care. Included within the system are:

  • Five acute care hospitals
  • A rehabilitation hospital
  • A new, state-of-the-art children's hospital
  • Central Georgia's first life plan community
  • An in-patient hospice facility, as well as in-home hospice care
  • Wellness and preventative services
  • Multiple urgent care centers
  • Numerous community-based partnerships that help Atrium Health Navicent deliver on its mission.

Distinguished nationally for its excellence, Atrium Health Navicent is also one of the premier teaching hospitals in the United States and serves as the primary teaching hospital for the Mercer University School of Medicine. Atrium Health Navicent supports residency-training programs in family practice, general surgery, internal medicine, obstetrics and gynecology, and pediatrics along with fellowships in critical care, geriatrics and orthopedic traumatology.

  • The latest and most innovative care options - like real-time virtual care for everything from everyday illnesses to critical care to mental health needs.
