Atrium Health Navicent Now Providing Ambulance Service in Baldwin County

Baldwin EMS ribbon cutting.

In early November, Atrium Health Navicent began providing emergency medical services (EMS) for Baldwin County, after a detailed selection process and vote by the Baldwin County Commission.

A ribbon-cutting ceremony was held Nov. 14 on the grounds of Atrium Health Navicent Baldwin, where officials and the community got a closer look at one of the new ambulances now providing services.

“Community hospital-based EMS provides the best opportunity for a seamless continuum of care for patients, resulting in improved patient outcomes and high patient satisfaction,” said Atrium Health Navicent President of Hospitals and Clinics Luis Fonseca, who also serves as CEO for Atrium Health Navicent Baldwin. “With pre-hospital care being delivered by Atrium Health Navicent EMS, we expect to see a patient-centered approach, improved response capabilities and patient outcomes. Thanks to Baldwin County Commissioners for their partnership as we improve health, elevate hope and advance healing right here in their community,” Fonseca said.

Atrium Health Emergency Medical Services (EMS) provides services in nine Georgia counties and one county in Alabama, and has operated as a hospital-based ambulance service for 123 years. Atrium Health EMS is the area’s licensed neonatal intensive care transport and a licensed medical first responder while also providing comprehensive non-emergency transport services throughout Georgia.

“EMS services are life-saving services. Getting patients the care they need, as quickly as possible, with a skilled and capable team is something that Atrium Health Navicent is proud to offer here in Baldwin County and across Georgia,” said Bud Owens, executive leader for the Atrium Health Georgia and Alabama EMS markets.

Atrium Health Navicent Baldwin is a 140-bed acute care facility which provides 24/7 emergency services, radiology services, women’s services and general medical and surgical services to the 150,000 people living in Baldwin County and the surrounding area. The hospital, located at 821 N. Cobb Street in Milledgeville, has been designated as a Georgia Level III Emergency Cardiac Care Center and as a Remote Treatment Stroke Center.
