Health system home to Regional Medical Center and new expanded services
Memphis, Tenn. — Regional One Health announced today the unification of all entities in the health system under an umbrella name, Regional One Health. Regional One Health is home to the acute care hospital Regional Medical Center, as well as an extended care hospital, rehabilitation hospital, outpatient surgery center, primary care network, and outpatient center. Regional One Health is the new name for the Shelby County Health Care Corporation, which has been doing business as Regional Medical Center for the past 30 years.
“When the Shelby County Health Care Corporation adopted the name Regional Medical Center in 1983, the organization was a stand-alone acute care hospital. Over the years the organization has grown with additional inpatient and outpatient services, but we continued to be identified under the hospital name,” explained Reginald W. Coopwood, MD, President and CEO of Regional One Health. “Creating the name Regional One Health allows us to unify all of our services under one brand and communicate the work we have done to grow our system to better serve this community.”
Over the last four years, Regional One Health has initiated a series of steps to expand and transform the organization into a true health system providing services ranging from preventative care with a focus on wellness in the outpatient setting to specialized emergency and inpatient hospital care. With the addition of several new business units coming on board in the past year, including a long term acute care hospital and an outpatient surgery center and with the transformation that is taking place in the healthcare industry, the time is appropriate to brand these services under a singular system identity which speaks to our transformation and our mission.
“We have made significant progress to transform this organization into a health system providing an expansive range of exceptional services delivered with compassionate care. The next logical step in the journey is to tie our system together. Regional One Health encompasses the full range of services our system provides and is a vital part of our sustainability and growth for the future,” said Dr. Coopwood.
Along with the brand launch, the system will adopt a new logo. The Regional One Health logo mark features a symbol signifying both a “1” and an “r” inside a blue circle. The image represents a unified system of caring professionals committed to advancing the quality of life in our community and showcases the system’s commitment to care for the whole person and serve with integrity. The mark also represents a regional health system committed to improving the health and well-being of the citizens served by ensuring that each individual has access to quality healthcare at the right time and in the right setting.
