We created the New Teammate Orientation program to help make it as easy as possible for you to become a fully engaged member of our workforce and our culture of caring.

Atrium Health is closely monitoring developments and continuously preparing for the potential impact of the Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19). Our infection prevention team has been working with local and national agencies for the past several weeks, studying what is known about the virus, tracking its spread, and preparing our clinical teams to address potential cases and questions

As teammates in healthcare, we all have a special role to play so that we can support our communities and patients. To help minimize the risks to our teammates and patients we serve, rather than gathering as a large group for Teammate Orientation, you will now be completing a Welcome to Atrium Health eLearning module within five (5) days of your start date. This eLearning will include access to the “System of Integrity” Code of Conduct Handbook and an Orientation Guide with important information and steps to take during your first week.  

Your First Week

Teammate Badges

Your badge is a visible symbol that you are now a member of our family. While at work, always display your badge with the photo facing out on your collar, lapel or front pocket. 

Clinical Teammate Uniforms

As of May 4, 2021, Atrium Health is taking steps to enhance patient safety by standardizing the scrub colors worn by clinical teammates throughout the system. The consistent uniform colors will ensure patients and their family members know who is caring for them. You can determine the appropriate color for your position using the grid below. 

Teammates may begin wearing their new uniform color immediately, even if their current unit/location/role has a previously designated uniform color standard. If you are required to wear surgical scrubs for infection prevention purposes (OR areas, procedural areas, etc.), you will continue to follow the departmental policy for wearing surgical scrubs.

If you do not work in one of the areas shown in the table, contact your leader for uniform information.  Ambulatory and Medical Group settings will be transitioning to the uniform standard in Phase Two.

Other Important Reminders

  • Stay home when you are feeling ill with fever/respiratory symptoms. Teammates with cold or flu-like symptoms should notify Teammate Health at 704-631-0200, so teammate illness can be monitored.
  • Hand Hygiene is essential, as is coughing/sneezing into your elbow. Continue to use proactive standard infection prevention techniques.
  • Take steps now to prepare for how you will handle possible disruptions in childcare and other personal responsibilities so that you are available to provide vital care for our communities.
