Memorial Health Systems Re-brands Local Hospitals

Memorial Health Systems has rebranded their hospitals. On Friday, Passavant Area Hospital will have its name changed to Jacksonville Memorial Hospital. CEO Dr. Scott Boston says it’s not the first time the hospital has had a name change: “Originally the hospital in Jacksonville that was started back in the 1870s was called Jacksonville Hospital. It wasn’t until about 25-30 years later that the hospital actually transitioned to Passavant Hospital in honor of Rev. William Passavant, who was a Lutheran minister that was instrumental in getting the hospital established in Jacksonville. Our legal current name is Jacksonville Memorial Area Hospital. We go by the name of Passavant Area Hospital, and that’s how we do business. We’ve had that name for several decades now. It’s a very well established name in our community. However, in 2014, we did make affiliation with Memorial Health Systems at that time. Truly, we became part of Memorial Health System, but we just didn’t change our name at that time.”
