The Via Christi-managed hospital in McPherson has a new name.
Memorial Hospital's board of trustees announced today that the facility will now be known as McPherson Hospital.
"The hospital board of trustees has discussed this possibility for quite some time," board chairman Brent Wall said in a news release. "As a community hospital, we have felt that our name should reflect our heritage."
In January, a management agreement with Via Christi Health in Wichita took effect, which included making the hospital's chief executive and chief financial officer employees of Via Christi.
