"Our thoughts and prayers are with our communities as they weather this storm and we are grateful for all of the emergency management personnel, clinicians and community organizations assisting with the safe transfer of these patients and their families, "said Dr. Ninfa M. Saunders, President and CEO of Atrium Health Navicent.

The Medical Center, Navicent Health will continue to work with state and local emergency management officials in order to ensure patients, families and communities are updated on this critical process for the safety of our regional state.
