A central Indiana hospital has changed its name. The Indiana Orthopaedic Hospital is now called OrtoIndy Hospital. March 2, 2015

News Release

Indianapolis, Ind. – OrthoIndy and the Indiana Orthopaedic Hospital (IOH) announced today that it is changing its corporate name to OrthoIndy and OrthoIndy Hospital to decrease the brand confusion surrounding the relationship between OrthoIndy and its hospital.

“Over the years, OrthoIndy has positioned itself as a high quality orthopedic provider,” said Jane Keller, CEO of OrthoIndy and OrthoIndy Hospital. “However, based on surveys conducted in the Indianapolis community, there is a lot of brand confusion about whether or not OrthoIndy and IOH are one entity. We hope the name change will increase the public’s understanding that OrthoIndy Hospital is owned and operated by OrthoIndy physicians.”

Anything that was once under the hospital brand will be moved under OrthoIndy. Such as, OrthoIndy Physical Therapy and OrthoIndy Imaging.

In addition to the name change, OrthoIndy has decided to launch a new branding campaign, effective March 1st. The new campaign includes new logos, color palette and fonts.

“Our services, day-to-day operations and superior service aren’t changing – just our look,” said Keller. “This year we will celebrate our ten-year anniversary of the hospital and will rollout some exciting new initiatives, making it the best time to rebrand our company.”
