INDIANAPOLIS - St. Vincent Health is adding Ascension to its name. Chief Executive Officer Jonathan Nalli says the Ascension St. Vincent name "reflects the strength of being part of this national network." St. Vincent has been part of Ascension since 1999.

The provider will also adopt the Ascension logo. It says patients will continue to see their regular doctors, who are connected to other experts and specialists throughout the state and country under the Ascension umbrella.

“By creating consistent names across Ascension facilities and services nationwide," Ascension Chief Marketing and Communications Officer Nick Ragone says in a release, "we’re making it easier for patients to access the care they need and expanding our efforts to deliver high-quality, affordable care for everyone with special attention to those most in need.”

St. Vincent is the latest Ascension system to take on the name. Ascension sites in Kansas, Texas, Alabama, Florida and New York went to the unified name last October.
