04.23.2020 Atrium Health News

CHARLOTTE, N.C., April 23, 2020 – Atrium Health is pleased to announce that 36 former Holston Medical Group (HMG) physicians are joining the Atrium Health family in newly-formed practicecalled One Health Family Medicine and One Health OB/GYN, with multiple locations throughout the Lake Norman and North Charlotte area. An additional 17 former HMG advanced practice providers (APPs) are anticipated to join Atrium Health soon. 

In the midst of the ongoing pandemic and state of emergency, HMG closed several locations in these communities and terminated their relationship with these care providers, leaving an estimated 70,000 patients without direct access to primary or OB/GYN care. To protect the health and well-being of these patients, most of the former HMG physicians have joined Atrium Health and will begin providing personalized care to patients in the near future.

“We’re very happy to welcome these care providers and their patients to Atrium Health,” said Scott Rissmiller, MD, executive vice president and chief physician executive for Atrium Health. These new clinicians and their patients can now take part in our nationally leading and fully integrated healthcare system that provides health, hope and healing – for all.”
