Those who rely on Atrium Health Navicent Baldwin for care can trust that we are providing safe and effective care, while focusing on continuous improvement and high performance," said Todd Dixon, CEO of NHB.

"We are so pleased that our team at Atrium Health Navicent Baldwin has achieved DNV GL accreditation in such a short time frame. This is no small feat, and is a testament to their diligence and commitment to excellence," said Dr. Ninfa M. Saunders, FACHE, President and CEO of Atrium Health Navicent.

DNV GL, with authority from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services as well as the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, has awarded NHB full accreditation for a three year term. As part of its accreditation procedure, DNV GL will conduct an annual survey at NHB to ensure the hospital's continual compliance.
