Quality of Life
Life in the Carolinas combines the best of southern charm, worldly cosmopolitan flair and unrivaled natural splendor with a low cost of living and high quality of life. Whether you yearn for majestic mountain views, the vibrant energy of world-class cities, or the coastal communities lined with sandy beaches along the shore, you can find what you’re looking for in the Carolinas.
With temperate weather year-round, recreational enthusiasts have more sunny days to get out and enjoy the selection of legendary golf courses, thousands of miles of hiking and biking trails, outdoor adventures at the U.S. National Whitewater Center, and exploration in our state parks. Sports fans can enjoy the excitement of the Carolina Panthers (NFL), Charlotte Hornets (NBA), Charlotte Checkers (NHL affiliate), Charlotte Knights (MiLB) and NASCAR racing at Charlotte Motor Speedway. Here, you can immerse yourself in local and worldly arts and culture with award-winning symphonies, history and art museums, theatre and local fairs. And foodies can explore a diverse culinary scene that includes James Beard finalist restaurants, global cuisine, thriving gastropubs and craft breweries, southern comfort food and, of course, some of the best BBQ in the country.
Just one visit here and you will see why so many cities and communities in the Atrium Health footprint regularly rank amongst U.S. News & World Report's Best Places to Live in the U.S.—including a top 10 ranking in 2020-2021 for Charlotte, NC.
Quality of Practice
With Atrium Health’s strategic combination with Wake Forest Baptist Health, we are establishing a “Silicon Valley” for healthcare that spans from the greater Winston-Salem, NC metro region down to the bustling urban center of Charlotte, NC and in communities between – creating a healthcare hub that will be a preferred destination for healthcare professionals.
The size, scope and capabilities of Atrium Health make us one of the largest and most accomplished healthcare systems in the entire country. Our healthcare system blends the best parts of large integrated tertiary medicine, advanced specialty care, community-focused hospitals and clinics with the best attributes of academic medicine into a regional network that provides physician and advanced practice providers with opportunities in any medical specialty and in any kind of clinical setting you could want.
To ensure Atrium Health maintains its position as a Best Place to Care, we work hard to optimize the experience of being a physician or APP. We provide opportunities for physicians/APPs to connect with one another to share ideas, offer support, and catalyze positive change. We believe that physicians must care for themselves to be able to care for our patients, and we’re committed to making that possible.
Our future is bright. With dozens of major construction projects underway, Atrium Health is set to grow at an unparalleled pace. The renderings above depict our future Carolinas Rehabilitation facility, our new tower at Carolinas Medical Center, and our new state-of-the-art medical office building, all scheduled for completion in the early 2020s.
