As part of our exciting strategic combination with Atrium Health, we are launching a new brand that aligns our Wake Forest Baptist brand and resources with those of Atrium Health. The unified name reflects who we are together as Atrium Health - one academic health system, jointly committed to transforming health through compassionate, equitable care, discovery and innovation and leading-edge medical education. This alignment will help us grow and serve all our patients and communities together.
"This is another milestone in our journey to come together for the benefit of our patients and the communities we serve. Together, with our colleagues within Atrium Health, we will create new care protocols and innovations that change what health care looks like for those who count on us for their care as well as those in our underserved communities."
- Julie Ann Freischlag, MD, Chief Executive Officer of Atrium Health Wake Forest Baptist, Dean of Wake Forest School of Medicine and Chief Academic Officer, Atrium Health
While our name has changed to signify our combined enterprise, who we are at the core remains the same. Retaining our historical brand is so important to our region, to Winston-Salem and to our affiliation with Wake Forest University. As always, we are dedicated to our long tradition of excellence in clinical care, research and education – and to serving all in our communities with the signature compassion, integrity and patient and family-centered care you expect – and deserve – from us.
