Proudly Enhancing Our Care for You
By Keith D. Bricking, MD, MBA, FAAEM, Chief Clinical Officer, Premier Health; President, Atrium Medical Center (2019-2022)
As health care continues to advance, so does Atrium Medical Center. To ensure that you and your family receive personalized care close to home, your full-service hospital continually strives to upgrade our technology, add new services, and build a stronger workforce. And our high-quality care keeps winning accolades.
Rehabilitation Ranked 50th in the Nation
We are extremely proud of the national acknowledgment of the quality of care provided by our rehab team. Atrium ranks 50th in the nation for rehabilitation services in the latest annual rankings from U.S. News & World Report. We also received a “high performing” designation in heart failure, heart attack, kidney failure, and stroke.
Upgrading Heart Care
Battling cardiovascular disease, one of the top three causes of death in Butler and Warren counties, is a priority. We recently added cardiac catheterization laboratory equipment designed to improve minimally invasive therapy. Our new angiography system provides sharper images with low-dose radiation and an improved ability to identify small vessels. This enhances precision while increasing safety for our patients.
In addition, we added cath lab space to ensure uninterrupted care for patients. The extended room creates a necessary bridge to enable routine maintenance and repairs in any one of our three cath labs. We are very grateful to all who have contributed to the Foundation’s Power of Kindness campaign for the ongoing project and new equipment.
In addition, Atrium now offers a new way to manage heart failure and reduce hospitalizations with the CardioMEMS™ HF System, featuring a home monitoring unit and a permanently implanted device.
Creating a Stronger Workforce
Premier Health and Sinclair Community College are creating new opportunities for our employees. It’s a win-win. The new Premier Health Sinclair Academy provides training so employees can advance in several career pathways. And our community gains a pipeline of skilled employees for in-demand jobs. Through generous donors, Atrium also offers scholarship support for employees to advance their careers.
Welcome to New President Kevin Harlan
It was my honor to serve as Atrium’s president for nearly four years as together we strengthened health care here in Southwest Ohio. As I have taken on a new role as Premier Health’s first chief clinical officer, Kevin Harlan is now Atrium’s new president. He joined Atrium after serving more than two years as president of Upper Valley Medical Center in Troy, also a member of Premier Health, and leading Grand Lake Health System as president and CEO. I’m confident Kevin will continue to lead Atrium to new achievements in building healthier communities.
