Charlotte, N.C.-based Atrium Health and Macon, Ga.-based Navicent Health signed a definitive agreement to form a "strategic combination," effective Jan. 1.

Under the agreement, Navicent will serve as a hub for Atrium incentral and south Georgia, and Atrium will maintain and expand Navicent's services, including its Level 1 trauma center.

"This important milestone demonstrates our continued commitment to creating a personalized care experience for each and every patient and community we serve," Eugene A. Woods, president and CEO of Atrium Health, said in a press release. "By the joining of two well-respected healthcare organizations, we will have the privilege to provide even greater access and care for existing and new communities throughout central and south Georgia, while we continue to live our mission to improve health, elevate hope and advance healing — for all."

After the two systems combine, Navicent will continue to have a local board, which will include two members from Atrium. Navicent will have two members nominated to Atrium's board of commissioners or board of advisors.
