Methodist hospitals setting themselves apart with new name change
Methodist Sugar Land Hospital has a new name..Effectively immediately, Fort Bend’s leading health care institution is now known as Houston Methodist Sugar Land Hospital.
The Methodist system, now Houston Methodist, changed its name to differentiate its hospitals from approximately 80 other Methodist hospitals across the country.
“The quality of Methodist’s medical care and our compassionate culture give us a unique identity, one that has significant strength both in Houston and in Fort Bend,” says Houston Methodist Sugar Land CEO, Chris Siebenaler. “This new approach helps solidify our connection to Houston and to the legacy of excellence at The Methodist Hospital, now known as Houston Methodist Hospital. Houston Methodist Sugar Land Hospital is proud to be a part of this history and we’re excited about carrying the new brand forward.”
The new names of the four community hospitals will now be:
• Houston Methodist Sugar Land Hospital
• Houston Methodist West Hospital
• Houston Methodist Willowbrook Hospital
• Houston Methodist San Jacinto Hospital
“While there are many other Methodist hospitals across the country this new name will establish, quickly and permanently, the fact that Houston Methodist is indeed the only one … the one that is leading medicine, and the one that is becoming a national presence,” said Marc Boom, M.D., president and CEO of Houston Methodist.
