What’s in a Name?

We created the word Atrius to represent the ideals we stand for and the quality of our care; it is emblematic of our passion for creating a better way to deliver healthcare.

Atrius is derived by combining the words “Atrium” and “Radius.” “Atrium” is an open central courtyard or dedicated special space. “Radius” defines a circle or sphere or is a measure of range of activity or influence.

Therefore, Atrius Health is a warm, welcoming space defined by the relationship between our patients – who are at the center – and the physicians and medical teams who care for them.
