June 20, 2013

The National Association of Public Hospitals and Health Systems has changed its name to America’s Essential Hospitals, the organization announced today. The name change was recently approved by the organization’s roughly 200 members. As part of the rebranding, the organization’s research entity also will be renamed the Essential Hospitals Institute. “Today we take an important step forward in our growth and that of our membership,” said President and CEO Bruce Siegel, M.D. “We and our members are united by a common purpose: to serve all people and all communities with essential services and the best care possible. This is what defines us and the hospitals and health systems we represent.”
