Care Well: Atrium Health Virtual Hospital

Atrium Health is a large health system with over 60,000 employees spread across more than 900 care facilities, including 45 hospitals, which cares for patients in both urban and rural settings. It is a complex network, so providing consistent care in the face of the novel Coronavirus-19 posed a challenge. Atrium Health’s Central Market, located in the greater Charlotte area of North Carolina, watched as hospitals and ICUs around the country filled to capacity and strove to find an innovative way to treat the COVID-19 patients in their community. In April, they launched a two-unit virtual hospital, which freed up hospital beds for the most complex patients and allowed for some acute COVID-19 patients to recover in their homes, thus limiting community spread and stretching their capacity.
