MAURY REGIONAL UPDATES NAME AND LOGO
COLUMBIA, Tenn. – Effective October 2008, Maury Regional Hospital will become known as Maury Regional Medical Center (MRMC). The name change was approved by the board of trustees in August and was supported by the Maury County Commission in September.
“Throughout the years, we have greatly advanced as a health
care facility—becoming more than just an inpatient
hospital,” said CEO Robert Otwell. “The
name Maury Regional Medical Center reflects the services
we offer today, from progressive cancer treatments to
open heart surgery, from intensive inpatient care to
state-of-the-art diagnostic testing. To complement the
facility’s new name, we have also adopted a fresh
and modern logo.”
The logo that was adopted in 1988 was developed when the hospital’s name changed from Maury County Hospital to Maury Regional Hospital. In the past 20 years, the hospital has acquired or constructed new facilities and formed management agreements that resulted in the organization operating two additional hospitals and two outpatient facilities in a region serving approximately 260,000 residents.
All outlying MRMC facilities will adopt the new logo, utilizing a consistent mark that will accompany the facility name. In addition, the Lewis Ambulatory Care Center will now be named Lewis Health Center and the Spring Hill Medical Building will now be named Maury Regional Spring Hill.
“While making a complete transition will take some time for an organization our size, the public will begin seeing the new logo in our marketing materials. The change to our business communications, such as billing, is anticipated to be complete by the first of the year,” said Otwell.
