St. Vincent, St. Mary's Health Unifying Brands

St. Mary's Warrick is in Boonville and will be changing its name to St. Vincent Warrick. St. Mary's Warrick is in Boonville and will be changing its name to St. Vincent Warrick.

A familiar name in southwest Indiana health care is changing. St. Mary's Medical Center in Evansville and St. Mary's Warrick Hospital in Boonville will become St. Vincent Evansville and St. Vincent Warrick in April. Both St. Vincent and St. Mary's Health are owned by St. Louis-based Ascension.

The two Indiana health systems joined forces in 2012 and Ascension says the unification is a continuation of efforts to "integrate clinical pathways, physician and administrative leadership and operational protocols." The integration means close to 2,000 physicians, 400 care sites and 20 hospitals will be under the St. Vincent umbrella.

St. Mary's Health President Keith Jewell says "our Mission has been - and always will be - to deliver healthcare that works, healthcare that is safe, and healthcare that leaves no one behind. As one system, we see greater opportunity to further sharpen our focus and provide Tri-state area patients with enhanced access to a truly statewide health system - including some of the nation’s leading physicians, researchers and clinicians. Together, we can respond to the needs of our patients and help advance healthcare outcomes across Indiana."

St. Vincent Chief Executive Officer Jonathan Nalli also serves as senior vice president of Ascension Healthcare and says "this name change follows the work we have passionately pursued at both a state and national level to align our health ministries to make it easier for our patients to access the care they need and more better navigate our system."

The Daughters of Charity, St. Mary's Health system was founded in 1872. Ascension has a presence in 24 states and the District of Columbia.
